Nokia and Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison (Indosat) recentlyannounced that they have successfully completed a network consolidation program ensuring a superior 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 percent. 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 percent and up to 170 percent 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: “Indosat’s mission is to deliver world-class digital experiences, connecting and empowering the people of Indonesia. The network integration completion is the springboard towards achieving that mission, and with the support of all strategic partners, we have achieved this grand ambition in just one year. We extend our most sincere thanks to all the teams involved in making this happen. 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.”
Ricky Corker, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Nokia, said: “We are honored to support Indosat in this strategic initiative, which will play a crucial role in driving Indonesia’s digital economy. Our proven expertise in delivering complex projects played a vital role in the completion of this consolidation project in a timely manner. The program has set a new benchmark for other network consolidation initiatives across the world.”
