MUNICH -- Indonesian-based P. T. Telekomunikasi Selular (Telkomsel) and Siemens have signed a framework agreement to expand Telkomsel’s GSM network. Under the terms of the contract, which is expected to be worth more than 300 million Euro, the Siemens Communications Group will be supplying new network technology for the country’s largest mobile provider over the course of the next three years and installing it on a turnkey basis.

The contract covers capacity expansions for both the radio and core network. To do that, Siemens will be installing additional base stations and upgrading the Telkomsel network with new switching technology.

“This new framework agreement with Telkomsel underscores our position as the leading mobile communication equipment supplier in Indonesia,” said Lothar Pauly, President of Siemens Communications. “With its population of 220 million people, the world’s fourth largest country is one of the strategic growth markets in Asia for us.” Telkomsel’s President Director Mr. Bajoe Narbito noted: “We wish to continue our successful cooperation with Siemens, which has been in place since 1994 when pioneering GSM for Indonesia. With Siemens, we can swiftly and specifically respond to the needs of the market with respect to network capacity and quality.”
