MUMBAI, INDIA: In perhaps the first ever commercial LTE Radio Dot System deployment in Latin America, Ericsson has helped Puerto Rican bank and hospital to improve indoor coverage.

The improved coverage has resulted in reliable connectivity and mobility for customer and employees in the Popular bank and patients, doctors and staff at the Salus hospital. The project was helmed by local operator Claro.

Within the hospital, the network is performing with telecom-grade standards at 99.999 percent reliability. In Radio Dot System deployments around the world, mobile data throughput has improved by up to 5 times, dropped calls have been reduced to zero and Radio Dot installation times are as low as 4 minutes per Dot. The Radio Dot System has also been designed to consume less power than traditional indoor solutions.



The indoor implementation consists of Radio Dots and fully integrated mRRUs (micro remote radio units) in a C-RAN configuration sharing the same baseband. Outdoors, RBS 6501 micro radio base stations address outdoor hotspots.

By doing this, Claro provides a superior app coverage experience indoors and outdoors for their customers with a cost-effective deployment that benefits from the flexibility of Ericsson small cells toolbox, tight radio coordination and unified management system, the company said in a press release.

Enrique Ortiz de Montellano, President and CEO, Claro Puerto Rico, said, “Being at the forefront of technology deployment is a priority in our business given the exponential growth of our customers’ mobile data needs. We are pleased to provide this market first and with the positive feedback received from our customers from Salus and Popular.”
