Telkom Indonesia deploys Coriant’s optical transport for backbone

Telkom Indonesia for mobileTelkom Indonesia has deployed Coriant’s coherent optical transport and switching technology as part of an upgrade to its fibre-based backbone network.

Coriant, a supplier of SDN-enabled packet optical networking and DCI solutions, said the network modernization, completed in Q4 2016, will improve the performance and increase the capacity of Telkom’s terrestrial and subsea optical transport infrastructure to meet demand for services and applications from mobile and fixed line users.

“With growing demand for data in Indonesia, Coriant’s advanced traffic grooming, switching, and transport solution will play a key role in our ability to cost-efficiently scale backbone capacity and deliver an uninterrupted quality of service under any network condition,” said Agus Subandrio, deputy EGM of Backbone and Core Network Planning and Deployment, Telkom.

Coriant’s optical transport solution

Telkom Indonesia, by making investment in Coriant solution, aims to scale its DWDM infrastructure to 100G per channel without replacing existing transmission systems. In addition to terrestrial 100G backbone upgrades, the combination of the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform and Coriant CloudWave Optics coherent interface technology enables Telkom to boost capacity on its JASUKA undersea cable.

Initial implementation includes operational deployment of sixteen 100G optical channels across an unrepeatered and DCM-free subsea transmission distance of over 350 kilometers between Dumai and Dangas.

Telkom nationwide upgrade project includes expanded deployment of the CoriantmTera Universal Transport Platform to optimize service traffic and maximize utilization of fiber assets as the network scales.

The mTera UTP transport solution supports software-defined Universal Switching, including OTN, Carrier Ethernet, MPLS-TP and SONET/SDH in a system architecture.

Telkom Indonesia is using the Coriant Transport Network Management System (TNMS) to simplify capacity provisioning and efficiently manage service traffic.

Telkom Indonesia’s management platform helps the service provider to reduce Opex and Capex through sophisticated network control, automated provisioning features, and advanced planning capabilities.

“Telkom remains a premier provider of fixed and mobile network services in the region, and we are pleased to help them address the challenges of backbone traffic growth with the latest innovations in our end-to-end packet optical transport solutions portfolio,” said Tarcisio Ribeiro, chief commercial and marketing Officer at Coriant.
