Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) will extend its long-term relationship with C&W Communications, which operates the retail brand Flow, and its new owner, Liberty Global (LiLAC Group), to provide world-class managed services, including operating and managing the Flow mobile network and field services and monitoring the network management for Flow in the Northern Caribbean region.
C&W and Liberty Global’s strategic partnership extension with Ericsson further strengthens their commitment in improving the quality and reliability of its services and strong network performance to customers. The three-year contract will include top-of-the-line field services (including corrective and preventive maintenance of the mobile core and radio equipment) and a Network Operations Center (NOC) to monitor and maintain the mobile network for Flow in the Anguilla, Antigua, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Turks & Caicos markets.
