SAN DIEGO -- Telkomsel, the market share leader in cellular telecommunications services in Indonesia, has deployed IP-based voice compression network infrastructure equipment from Nuera Communications, Inc. to help meet subscriber growth and to reduce operating expenses.

As the first cellular service provider in Indonesia to deploy IP-based voice compression technology in their network, Telkomsel uses Nuera ORCA® GX-8 voice over IP (VoIP) media gateways to interconnect the mobile switching centers (MSC) within the Telkomsel GSM network.

Telkomsel has quickly grown to provide cellular services in Indonesia to more than 9.5 million subscribers. "To economically support our growth and to continue to offer high quality service, we must closely manage the connectivity between our switching systems," says Sandy Yzelman, Vice President Network Operations of Telkomsel. "The bandwidth savings, voice quality and system reliability of the Nuera media gateways provide us with the flexibility and performance to meet our financial and operational objectives. The Nuera media gateways enable us save a very significant amount of money while we cope with the limited availability of bandwidth needed to interconnect our MSCs."

In addition to this win in Indonesia, Nuera has successfully provided VoIP systems to network operators throughout the world. Operators in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Netherlands, Russia, Germany, Portugal and the United States use Nuera VoIP systems to deliver revenue-generating services.

"Indonesia is a large and growing market for mobile and broadband network operators," says Craig Lee, Vice President of Marketing at Nuera. "We are pleased to assist Telkomsel increase revenues and reduce costs while providing reliable, high-quality voice services."
