Huawei and Telkomsel, a leading mobile operator in Indonesia, signed a joint innovation MoU during the 2018 Global Mobile Broadband Forum.

This will enhance their joint innovation in flexible package services, user experience assurance, and enterprise mobile broadband (MBB) services. Huawei will continue helping Telkomsel to develop competitive MBB services and to provide optimal user experience. This cooperation will help both parties implement the digital transformation and business strategies support rapid development of Telkomsel MBB services.

Telkomsel's digital transformation strategies aim to provide leading user experience and transform Telkomsel from a traditional telecom service provider to a leading digital and data service provider. In 2018, Telkomsel worked with Huawei to migrate package quota management into the Unified Policy and Charging Controller (UPCC) through the Huawei SmartPCC solution. This solution provides rich features and simplified network topology, reducing operational complexity and total cost of ownership (TCO), shortening average time to market (TTM) of MBB packages, and introducing competitive new services.

This MoU aims to further enhance technical cooperation between the two parties in the MBB field. Their joint innovation in core network solutions will accelerate rollout of Telkomsel's new service packages, meet diverse requirements of individuals and enterprises, and improve user experience.

With our joint efforts, package quota management of 160 million mobile subscribers has been smoothly migrated into the UPCC. This is a great achievement for both of us. Huawei has a deep understanding of Telkomsel's digital transformation strategies.
