Indonesia’s Moratelindo works with Ribbon to expand broadband capacity

Indonesian fixed broadband provider Moratelindo has expanded its capacity in what are called key network sections with the help of Ribbon Optical Solutions.

Ribbon Communications Inc, a global provider of real-time communications software and IP optical networking solutions, says that it has been selected by Moratelindo to expand its capacity on two key sections of its network.

The company says its advanced optical solutions are enabling Moratelindo to more than double the capacity of its Sumatra backbone to 3.6 Terabits per second, delivering connectivity to the world's sixth largest island over its entire 473,000 square kilometre area. Additionally, the 280 kilometre-long Batam subsea link, which extends Moratelindo's reach to Singapore, now boasts an additional 2 Terabits of transmission capacity.

On top of this, Moratelindo now benefits from a 200G network that is 400G-ready, enabling it to introduce new bandwidth-hungry services quickly and easily. The Sumatra optical backbone uses Ribbon's Apollo 9932 Core OTN Switch at multiple nodes, leveraging its 16T switching capacity for efficient services grooming and routing over the backbone.

Ribbon says its TM800 programmable transponders maximize transmission capacity on the Batam subsea link, providing what is described as the highest optical performance and delivering optimal line rate and service capacity for any set channel condition.

Moratelindo is one of the largest telecommunications infrastructures service providers in Indonesia. It has deployed a fibre optic cable network of more than 48,515  km with 18,360 Gpbs capacity, including both terrestrial and subsea links.
