There's positive news for Huawei from Indonesia, where operator Indosat Ooredoo has announced its continued partnership with Huawei Indonesia as one of its strategic partners to build a state-of-the-art, programmable, 5G-ready transport network powered by segment routing IPv6 (SRv6).
Huawei will deploy the network in the key areas of Jabodetabek, Surabaya and the rest of East Java and Bali. The company claims this will be the first commercial deployment of its kind in Asia Pacific. It will, adds the company, enable a simple, scalable, agile and reliable network available on demand to enterprises and consumers alike.
Indosat Ooredoo is Indonesia’s leading mobile operator, serving a growing subscriber base. The growing demand for mobile data consumption, and the emergence of newer technologies like cloud computing and network slicing, are driving what is referred to as this paradigm shift from Indosat Ooredoo, through a partnership that aims to ensure on-demand network services for its customers.
This new technology, along with Indosat Ooredoo’s fibre optic network expansion, will enable the cloud computing-supported faster data connectivity with which Indosat Ooredoo looks to serve digital communities.
In preparing for these future-ready services in Indonesia, Indosat Ooredoo has undergone various steps of digital development, and this transport network transformation is described as a key element of the journey.
