PT Telekom upgrades undersea cable system to 40 Gbps with Nokia Siemens Networks

PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (PT Telkom), the largest telecom operator in Indonesia, has upgraded its 354-km JaSuKa undersea cable between Dumai and Dangas. The upgrade adds 40-Gbps per channel to existing hardware using Nokia Siemens Networks technology. Four channels currently have the 40-Gbps capabilities.

The link carries fixed and mobile voice and data traffic from PT Telkom and other major operators of Indonesia.

"This initiative is part of our vision to develop the Nusantara Super Highway to provide ‘true’ broadband to 90% of capital districts across the Indonesian Archipelago by 2015. We are upgrading our terrestrial network to 40G to cope with the increased demand for bandwidth-intensive applications and services. The JaSuKa undersea cable is critical for international connectivity and we felt it was time to increase its capacity too,” said David Bangun, executive general manager of Telecommunication Infrastructure Division at PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia. “Nokia Siemens Networks proposed a solution that made the most of our existing investments, delivering a high quality, cost-effective and reliable 40G network on time."

“Indonesia is witnessing a rapid uptake of broadband services. With ever-increasing wireline and mobile broadband penetration and the roll-out of new services, operators need to ensure round-the-clock connectivity for end users,” said Salman Zafar, head of PT Telkom customer team at Nokia Siemens Networks. “By investing in the optical undersea link that carries international telecoms traffic, whether it’s mobile or fixed, PT Telkom is well prepared to meet the increase in demand.”

The link uses Nokia Siemens Networks’ hiT 7300 optical network platform. PT Telekom also benefits from the systems vendors’ network planning tools and network management system. Nokia Siemens Networks also provided implementation services such as survey, installation, commissioning, and integration of the hIT 7300 DWDM equipment.
