Indonesia's PT Telkom has signed a two-year strategic partnership with Fujitsu, in which they will pursue the co-creation of digital businesses that leverage advanced network infrastructure in Indonesia.
Based on the MoU, the two companies will move forward to apply cutting-edge technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), to various fields, including smart cities, healthcare, manufacturing and logistics.
The prevalence of smartphones and broadband networking that enables high-capacity communications have in recent years led to an enormous expansion in Internet usage in Indonesia. Being a country with a population of over 250 million, even further growth in the digitalization of society as a whole is expected, says the press release.

1. Verification of technical specifications, systems, and service performance related to advanced technology and solutions, such as IoT
2. Assessment of business and service models, including market research
3. Concept verification
4. Service co-creation based on research and review
