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
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
