Indosat Ooredoo (Indosat), one of Indonesia's largest services providers, has selected Nokia Networks to power its LTE-Advanced network.
As part of the contract, Nokia Networks' Global Services team has deployed LTE base stations in key cities across the designated regions. The team has also aggregated two carriers in the 900 and 1800 MHz spectrum bands to deliver up to 150 Mbps downlink speed to Indosat's subscribers in the Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan regions. Customers can now enjoy a wide range of data-intensive services like multimedia streaming, online games, cloud storage and video conferencing.
Alexander Rusli, CEO, Indosat Ooredoo, said: “Nokia Networks played a crucial role in realising our vision to deliver the best-in-class mobile broadband experience across Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan. We were especially pleased with the speedy delivery which put us ahead of schedule and enabled fast commercialisation. We will continue to further expand LTE coverage across the country, with the ultimate goal of providing world-class data services to every subscriber using our network."
Achim Springmann, head of Indosat Ooredoo customer team, Nokia Networks, said: "Nokia Networks has further strengthened its relationship with Indosat Ooredoo through this project and taken the operator another important step towards its vision of providing best-in-class LTE coverage across Indonesia. We are proud to be part of this initiative, which will underline Indosat Ooredoo's reputation as an innovation leader in the country."
Indosat Ooredoo and Nokia Networks share a robust and collaborative business relationship which started with Indonesia's first 1800 MHz LTE trial and reached new heights with a major mobile broadband deal in 2012. Both companies play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the telecommunications industry in Indonesia.
