Telkomsel, Huawei ink digital transformation MoU

28 Nov 2018

Indonesian mobile network operator (MNO) PT Telekomunikasi Selular (Telkomsel), part of the Telkom Indonesia group, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Chinese telecom equipment company Huawei Technologies to drive the digital transformation of its business. According to their press release, the two firms will collaborate on the development of new services that provide increased flexibility and assurance of the end user’s experience, as well as helping to develop enterprise mobile broadband services in Indonesia.

Earlier this year the two companies worked together to integrate Huawei’s SmartPCC solution, as part of a plan to migrate package quota management into the Unified Policy and Charging Controller (UPCC) – a solution which they claimed would facilitate ‘rich features an well as a simplified network topology, cutting down upon total cost of ownership (TCO) and operational complexity, introducing new competitive services and lessening the average time-to-market (TTM) of the MBB packages’. In the wake of that development, Telkomsel and Huawei will now extend their collaboration to develop new solutions for core networks to accelerate the deployment of the MNO’s new service offerings. No financial details of the MoU have been disclosed.
