Indonesia’s second largest telecoms operator Indosat has picked Motorola to optimise its GPRS and 3G networks. Under the deal, the US hardware vendor will install Bytemobile’s Optimisation and Services Node (OSN) and provide software and services to fully exploit the capabilities of Indosat’s 2.5G and 3G networks. Commenting on the deal, Indosat president, Johnny Swandi Sjam, said: ‘It is critical that Indosat continuously improves network performance to meet growing market demand with minimal capital investment.’ The company director went on to say that the solution will help the firm achieve its goal of optimising its network resources, enabling the company to deliver advanced, reliable and affordable data services to its customers ‘in a timely manner’.
