Indosat OoredooThe first year of the multi-year network upgrade will include Jakarta, Jabodetabek and the rest of Java. Indosat Ooredoo’s three-year program aims to transform network to achieve the best customer experience, which will provide video-grade 4G coverage to more than 90 percent of Indonesia’s population.

The Nokia IP/MPLS solution will include Nokia IP Anyhaul for Indosat’s mobile transport network, Robert Cattanach, head of Indonesia at Nokia, said.

Indosat Ooredoo’s telecom network engineers will upgrade the existing 7750 SR-12e platforms with FP4 network processor. They will also install FP4-equipped 7750 SRs that can handle the traffic increase.

Indosat Ooredoo believes that Nokia’s Service Router has the ability to support the highest port densities of 10GE and 100GE links that are required in the densest metropolitan areas.

Dejan Kastelic, CTIO of Indosat Ooredoo, said: “The IP/MPLS network upgrade is aimed at providing a solid foundation for the network transformation, particularly in the most densely populated area of the country.”
