Nokia Indonesia has revealed that telecoms tower and network infrastructure provider Bali Towerindo Sentra (Balitower) will use Nokia’s mobile transport solutions and services to modernise its IP network as part of a three-year nationwide project. It is understood the initiative will allow the infrastructure provider to increase network capacity and reliability and to deliver expanded 5G services for its customer base. In short, Nokia will supply Balitower with routers providing a nationwide network, including the 7210 Service Access System (SAS) and 7250 Interconnect Router (IXR) with integrated Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers enabling highly accurate synchronisation. In addition, the Finnish vendor will supply Balitower with its Network Services Platform (NSP), as well as consultancy and services for network design and deployment.
‘We are committed to providing experience to our customers and this project is a crucial step in this direction. We are already using Nokia solutions, and we are confident that Nokia’s solutions and proven expertise will help us improve network capacity as well as prepare the network for 5G use cases,’ Jap Owen Ronadhi, president director of Balitower is cited as saying.
