FiberStar Indonesia has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Huawei to extend their fiber-optic network cooperation. The MoU covers expansion of FiberStar’s fixed network and data center infrastructure.

FiberStar’s overall network covers 92 cities in Indonesia and connects the country’s main islands, including Sumatra, Java, Bali, Kalimantan, and Sulawesi. "Being the pioneer of Indonesia’s neutral infrastructure service, and considering Huawei’s advancement in the optical communications field, we have both decided to explore a deeper and stronger partnership,” explained Thomas Dragono, co-founder and director of FiberStar. “The consensus on the advantages of optical network technologies and evolution trends are the basis of cooperation between both parties. We will leverage the advanced DWDM and MPLS technology to expand the coverage of networks in Indonesia and further facilitate the growth of the digital economy in Indonesia."

The latest agreement follows collaboration between the two companies on the deployment of a 1-Tbps backbone DWDM network between Jakarta and Surabaya earlier this year. The backbone fiber-optic network comprises submarine cables and terrestrial infrastructure that combine to form a greater than 3000-km ring fiber network.
