Indosat Ooredoo selects Nokia for IP/MPLS network upgrade

5 Mar 2019

In a press release, Finland-based Nokia says it has been chosen by Indonesian fixed and mobile operator Indosat Ooredoo to upgrade its IP/MPLS network to meet pent up demand for high speed internet services. The first year of the multi-year network upgrade will include Jakarta, Jabodetabek and the rest of Java, it confirmed, noting that the Nokia IP/MPLS solution will include Nokia IP Anyhaul for Indosat’s mobile transport network, upgrading its performance and making it 5G-ready. Further, the network expansion deal will see Nokia upgrade Indosat Ooredoo’s existing Nokia 7750 SR-12e platforms with its FP4 network processor, as well as the additional installation of the new generation of FP4-equipped 7750 SRs. The vendor claims that ‘Nokia FP4’s ability to handle the massive traffic increase, coupled with the Service Router portfolio’s ability to support the highest port densities of 10GE and 100GE links that are required in the densest metropolitan areas, were key to Indosat’s selection of Nokia for this network expansion’.
