Ericsson and Indosat partner for 4G/LTE network transformation in Indonesia

Ericsson has strengthened its partnership with Indonesian operator Indosat with a new agreement to deploy 4G/LTE network in Greater Jakarta.

The partnership covers 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE network technology, implementation services and network performance optimisation. The solution works seamlessly with the existing 2G and 3G networks already supplied by Ericsson.

The equipment to be supplied is from the Ericsson RBS 6000 base station family that enables energy-efficient and cost-effective operations. The optimisation of the networks will further support Indosat to capture the ever-increasing demand of mobile broadband in Indonesia.

Alexander Rusli, CEO and President Director of Indosat, said: "This technology means faster speeds, more responsive applications, greater efficiency and more stable connections. The upgrade helps our customers to enjoy a superior experience using our network, while also better positioning us to serve our country's need for a strong data network."

Thomas Jul, Head of Ericsson Indonesia and Timor-Leste, says: "Our consumer studies in Indonesia show that network performance is the main consideration for mobile phone users' loyalty. With the introduction of 4G/LTE and continuous optimisation of Indosat's networks, customers will notice faster speeds - especially how quickly new connections are established, how fast web pages load and how much more responsive applications feel."
