NSN to upgrade PT Telkom submarine connection

21 Dec 2011

Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) is providing a capacity boost for Telekomunikasi Indonesia’s (PT Telkom’s) 354km JaSuKa submarine link, deemed critical to Indonesia’s international connectivity. The capacity upgrade means that the telco can now provide data transmission speeds of 40Gbps per channel on the JaSuKa sub-sea cable between Dumai and Dangas, while reusing existing assets. Under the contract, NSN is supplying Telkom with its dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) solution, comprising the hiT 7300 optical network platform – part of the company’s so-called ‘Liquid Transport’ architecture.
