Telkom picks TRG to deploy 802.16d WiMAX platform

11 Mar 2010

PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) has selected PT Teknologi Riset Global (TRG), an affiliate of leading Indonesian infrastructure developer the Indonesian Tower Group, to supply it with a national 802.16d WiMAX solution in the recently freed up 3.3GHz band. Telkom’s announcement follows a ministry decree calling on operators to migrate from the 3.5GHz to 3.3GHz band, while sticking with 802.16d accredited technology. The telco says it has already deployed TRG’s WiMAX solution in four regions: West Java, Jakarta, Sumatra Island and Kalimantan Island. TRG has been working with Canada’s Tranzeo Wireless Technologies Inc, which manufactures wireless broadband and WiMAX communication systems from its base in British Columbia, to integrate WiMAX equipment for Indonesian carriers with licensed spectrum at 2.3GHz and 3.3GHz, it said.
