Indonesia's PT Telkom Deploys Coriant’s Optical Transport to Upgrade Nationwide Backbone

Indonesia's largest telecommunication provider, PT Telkom has deployed Coriant’s coherent optical transport and universal switching technology as part of a nationwide upgrade to its fiber-based backbone network.

Completed at the end of 2016, the network modernization initiative will improve the performance and increase the capacity of Telkom’s terrestrial and subsea optical transport infrastructure to meet growing demand for high-bandwidth mobile and fixed line services and applications, said Coriant. The Coriant solution enables Telkom to seamlessly scale its DWDM infrastructure to 100G per channel without replacing existing transmission systems.

In addition to terrestrial 100G backbone upgrades, the combination of the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform and Coriant CloudWave Optics coherent interface technology enables Telkom to further boost capacity on its JASUKA undersea cable, which provides high-speed connectivity amongst Java, Sumatera, and Kalimantan islands.

Initial implementation includes operational deployment of sixteen 100G optical channels across an unrepeatered and DCM-free subsea transmission distance of over 350 kilometers between Dumai and Dangas.

The Telkom nationwide upgrade project includes expanded deployment of the Coriant mTera Universal Transport Platform to optimize service traffic and maximize utilization of fiber assets as the network scales. 

Agus Subandrio, Deputy EGM of Backbone and Core Network Planning and Deployment, Telkom
With growing demand for data in Indonesia and across the Southeast Asia region, Coriant’s advanced traffic grooming, switching, and transport solution will play a key role in our ability to cost-efficiently scale backbone capacity and deliver an uninterrupted quality of service under any network condition.

Tarcisio Ribeiro, EVP and Chief Commercial and Marketing Officer, Coriant 
Telkom remains a premier provider of fixed and mobile network services in the region, and we are pleased to help them address the challenges of backbone traffic growth with the latest innovations in our end-to-end packet optical transport solutions portfolio.
