Indosat builds for growth with future-proof mobile network solution
Softswitch from Nokia Siemens Networks delivers flexible capacity, efficiency and high-value service applications
In response to the growth, Indosat has taken a first step towards an all-IP environment with the deployment of Nokia Siemens Networks' mobile softswitch solution that will also expand network coverage and capacity, and ensure optimal network quality.
Indonesia's low mobile penetration offers Indosat tremendous potential for further subscriber growth. To that end, Indosat's selection of a mobile softswitching solution brings additional benefits such as the ability to widen network coverage, flexible capacity management, utilize IP backhaul, and create a call-prioritization feature for high value customers.
Johnny Swandi Sjam, President Director of Indosat said: "Indosat acknowledges and continuously strives to address the challenge of improving our services for our loyal customers. We believe that with Nokia Siemens Networks, renowned for their efficient and reliable solutions, as our partner, we can meet this challenge. Thus, we are able to provide complete communications solutions to our customers and ultimately retain Indosat's leadership in the market."
Arjun Trivedi, Head of sub-region Indonesia for Nokia Siemens Networks, said: "The Indonesian telecommunications market is seeing tremendous traffic growth. Our future-proof technology is designed to meet a demanding mobile environment as users become more data-hungry. Our reliability, combined with a best-in-class services capability, will allow Indosat to meet market demand and work towards an all-IP environment - the ideal platform for today and tomorrow."
To ensure network efficiency and stability, Nokia Siemens Networks will also provide a broad range of services including replacement and relocation of old equipment, network design, new equipment implementation and project management as well as training and maintenance for all products and solutions included in the deal.
Nokia Siemens Networks has developed a strong track in the supply of mobile softswitching supplier worldwide, with close to 200 customers for its mobile softswitching and over 120 live networks. The softswitching contract extension deal cements Nokia Siemens Networks' position as Indosat's leading infrastructure vendor.
Indosat continues to monitor, control, analyze and manage their services and network with the Nokia Siemens Networks multi-technology service and network management solutions.
