JAKARTA -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and Telkom Akses, the Telkom Indonesia subsidiary responsible for building a national broadband infrastructure, have announced plans for the delivery of fiber to the premises (FTTx) ultra-broadband access for millions of subscribers in Indonesia, a predominantly rural and agricultural nation comprised of over 17,000 islands. The expansion is part of the Indonesian government’s program to provide ultra-broadband access across the country.
Telkom Indonesia, the largest telecommunications services company in Indonesia and majority owned by the government has, through Telkom Akses, the responsibility for expanding the national broadband infrastructure to 15 million subscribers by 2015 as part of the TITO (Trade In Trade Off) Access Modernization Project which is replacing legacy copper cabling with optical fiber.
Once deployed in Indonesia, Alcatel-Lucent’s technology will allow the delivery of a range of consumer and business services including IPTV, video on demand, voice over IP (VoIP) and more at speeds of up to 100 Megabits per second.
Telkom Akses has responsibility for taking broadband penetration in Indonesia from about 2 percent to 30 percent by the end of 2015
Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its industry-leading Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) product family, which supports GPON enabling fiber-to-the-premises.
Alcatel-Lucent is the worldwide leader in fixed broadband access, supporting the largest mass deployments of video, voice and data services. Today, one out of three fixed broadband subscribers around the world is served through an access network provided by Alcatel-Lucent. Alcatel-Lucent is involved in over 100 FTTH projects worldwide, over 85 of which are with GPON.
Alcatel-Lucent’s work in Indonesia’s Eastern Region aligns with its recently announced Shift Plan which significantly focuses the company on providing high-speed broadband
