Nokia has announced that it has been selected by Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison (IOH) as the principal vendor to deploy and expand its 4G and 5G network across Indonesia in a three-year deal.
The comprehensive deal, which will see Nokia provide solutions from its latest AirScale portfolio, will cover an area of 1.4 million square kilometers including Sumatra island, Kalimantan island, Central Java and Surabaya city.
The project will support Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison’s ambitions to become the most preferred digital telco in the country by addressing market requirements, improving data throughput and customer experience and preparing the network for early 5G deployments.
Nokia will provide equipment from its latest ReefShark-powered AirScale portfolio including base stations and 5G Single RAN for both premium indoor and outdoor coverage. Nokia’s consolidation services will ensure a smooth integration by merging spectrum owned by IOH into a single network, ensuring minimum impact to end-users.
With Nokia’s technology, Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison will be able to quickly and easily upgrade to 5G services remotely with a software update or with a plug-in card. Nokia’s energy-efficient AirScale solution will also allow IOH to keep cost to a minimum while improving the quality of its services.Click below to share this article
