Level 3 To Assist Verizon On 4G Rollout

International provider of fiber-based communication services, Level 3 Communication Inc. announced late last week its decision to offer help to Verizon Wireless in their ongoing roll out of the 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) network.

The offered assistance from the company will include both backbone infrastructure, as well as cell-site backhaul solutions.

Verizon plans to embrace the services of the leading fiber communication service provider keeping in mind the growing demand of mobile data and spectrum the company has been put under lately.

Verizon Wireless Network Vice President Nicki Palmer said in a recent statement (opens in new tab), “Customers’ demand for mobile data is growing exponentially, and we are expanding the reach of our 4G LTE network to ensure we meet that need”. The VP added, “Level 3’s technology will help us provide our 4G LTE customers with a mobile experience that is fast, reliable and rich with content”.

Level 3 is also offering Verizon its assistance in the company’s cell-site backhaul requirement for a number of rural markets in New England as well as in Western US.

Expressing his point of view about this tie-up between the two companies, Andrew Crouch, president of Sales for Level 3 said (opens in new tab), “Verizon Wireless is leveraging our technologies to build one of the world's most advanced wireless networks".
