Wireless service provider America Movil has selected Alcatel-Lucent to rollout a 4G LTE network in the Dominican Republic. Alcatel-Lucent is supplying the America Movil subsidiary Claro Dominican Republic with its 4G LTE network overlay solution.

The new 4G LTE overlay network, the latest stage in America Movil’s Latin American 4G rollout, will cover most of the Dominican Republic’s territory and serve up to 80% of its population.

The first stage of the deployment, which is already operational, includes coverage of the major cities in the country. Deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s 4G LTE overlay solution includes Alcatel-Lucent’s LTE Radio Access Network, 9471 Wireless Mobility Manager,  and the 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM).

The network is part of America Movil’s 4G LTE Latin American rollout, which began with Claro Puerto Rico in 2012. Earlier this year Alcatel-Lucent and America Movil announced an end-to-end 4G LTE overlay deployment with Claro Uruguay.
