3 Indonesia deploys Nokia solution to optimize LTE coverage

Telecom network supplier Nokia has started working with 3 Indonesia in order to optimize and expand its LTE network coverage.
Hutchison 3 Indonesia and NokiaNokia said its Zero Drive Test solution – powered by powered by Nokia’s AVA Cognitive Services — will reduce CO2 emissions by replacing manual drive tests which is the typical method of assessing network coverage, capacity and quality.

Nokia’s AVA Cognitive Services which allows mobile operators to transform their network, service and business operations through the application of AI and automation helping them to predict and resolve network issues and improve the customer experience.

Nokia said the 100 percent automated Zero Drive Test solution enables 3 Indonesia to receive insights on network performance and enhance user experience.

3 Indonesia is the first Nokia customer in the Asia Pacific and Japan region to deploy the Zero Drive Test solution.

Nokia’s solution will help 3 Indonesia with enhanced network measurement and assessment which is superior to conventional drive tests on the road. It provides a clear view of network performance, capacity, radio signal coverage and traffic localization.

Nokia said its solution can identify the experience for subscribers inside buildings, or contrast performance in the same location at different times of the day. This data will help 3 Indonesia to optimize radio base station LTE and improve any congested capacity or poor coverage spots.

Nokia in 2019 delivered zero-emission products to over 150 customers worldwide. It is also committed to decreasing emissions from its operations by 41 percent by 2030. 46 percent less energy was used on average in the customer base station sites Nokia modernized in 2019 compared to those where its customers did not modernize.

Desmond Cheung, CTO of 3 Indonesia, said: “The implementation of the Zero Drive Test solution keeps us focused on delivering the best quality network for our customers.”

Biswas Prosad, head of Customer Team for Indonesia at Nokia, said: “This is an important development which will help 3 Indonesia to assess the performance of their network and use the data and insights to make informed decisions.”
