JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Indosat, Indonesia’s leading operator, and Nokia Siemens Networks have successfully conducted the country’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE) field trial in the 1800 MHz band. The trial is based on FDD-LTE (frequency division duplex) technology and showcases Indosat’s network readiness to re-farm the existing 1800 MHz frequency band. The trial took place in Surabaya and Bali in the presence of government representatives and regulatory authorities.

During the trial, the companies showcased innovative applications such as e-doctor and e-education in the cities of Surabaya and Denpasar, which enabled a patient to remotely consult a doctor, and a lecturer to teach students, through video conferencing. In addition, 3D video streaming and CCTV camera surveillance were demonstrated.

“LTE brings a new generation of communications to Indonesia,” said Hans C. Moritz, director and chief technology officer, Indosat. “Nokia Siemens Networks was an obvious choice for the trial due to its large installed base and ability to deliver LTE in the 1800 MHz frequency band. The company’s technology leadership and excellent support services can help us re-use our existing 1800 MHz band, currently used for 2G services, for future LTE services.”
