Nokia and Moratelindo Improve Optical Transmission Network in Indonesia

November 2022

Nokia and Moratelindo have deployed their optical transport solution to boost the network capacity to 3 terabytes (tb) in Jakarta and, 2 tb in Java Island, scaling the network beyond 24 tb, covering over 52,000km of fiber. The deployment will foster Moratelindo an improved bandwidth at reduced cost whilst allowing Moratelindo to monetize its network as Network-as-a-Service (NaaS).

Nokia’s novel solution will enable Moratelindo to integrate their existing network with the latest version of traffic modules. This will help in the saving of initial capital expenses and improves the health of the infrastructure.  Nokia’s solution also includes the use of an 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) device to help Moratelindo maximize the coverage and capacity of its optical transmission network.

Michael McPhail, Chief Technology Officer at PT. Mora Telematika Indonesia, said “Nokia is a global leader in optical transport technology and its PSE-V solution will allow us to cost-efficiently and sustainably upgrade our optical backbone. The modernization of the optical network will enable us to increase capacity per module while bringing down the cost. This crucial upgrade will further deepen our engagement with Nokia and allow us to maintain our competitive edge by further improving network performance.”

KP Goh, President Director at Nokia Indonesia, said “Our industry-leading optical solution will allow Moratelindo to more than double the capacity without adding extra shelves. Moratelindo will be able to use the existing network elements along with new generation traffic modules which will bring down investment while enhancing customer experience. Nokia solution ensures seamless integration of the terrestrial and subsea network thus simplifying the management of the operations.”
