Indonesia is projected to have 233.53 million mobile internet users by 2026. The Indonesia government announced the Digital Indonesia Roadmap, with key priorities including completing 4G infrastructure in more than 10,000 sub-regions by 2022 and developing 5G-ready networks.

Juniper Networks said the MX240, MX480, MX960 and MX2020 Series Universal Routing Platforms from Juniper’s 400G portfolio will serve as the foundation of the SRv6-based transport network.

Juniper Networks said Professional Services will play an instrumental role in the design and implementation of SRv6 in the XL Axiata core network, including ensuring interoperability with the telco’s existing IP/MPLS network.

“By leveraging Juniper’s routing solutions and SRv6 capabilities, we will be able to experience improved network reliability and scalability, as well as simplified network operations,” Fadly Hamka, Group Head Network Planning & Design, XL Axiata, said.

“This expansion of our long-term relationship is also a testament to our ability to build scalable and operationally intelligent networks,” Perry Sui, Senior Director, ASEAN & Taiwan, Juniper Networks, said in a statement.
