Nokia and Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison (Indosat) have completed a network consolidation program to boost experience for Indosat’s growing subscriber base.
The program, which covers major cities in Java (Surabaya, Semarang and Yogyakarta), and the regions of Sumatera and Kalimantan, will improve Indosat’s network performance and capacity helping them to play a vital role in Indonesia’s digital transformation agenda to unlock economic growth.
Nokia is Indosat’s strategic partner and has helped it to optimise the total number of physical sites across its sub-brands, IM3 and Tri by 30%. Indosat has deployed sites in new regions, providing better indoor coverage and faster speeds. The combined spectrum assets from both service providers were leveraged, improving the performance for IM3 by up to 42% and up to 170% for Tri.
Nokia’s latest AirScale portfolio helped Indosat modernise its network, enhancing the capacity and operational efficiency which will support 5G services and accelerate time to market. Nokia also supported with the design process enabling Indosat to maximise the benefits of network consolidation.
Vikram Sinha, President Director and CEO at Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison, said: "This network integration is part of our commitment to deliver a marvellous experience to all our customers. Moving forward, Indosat will continue expanding its network throughout Indonesia because we believe that inclusive internet access will unlock various untapped potentials and improve the nation's economy in the near future."
