Nokia and Hutchison 3 Indonesia (H3I) have signed an agreement under which Nokia will expand H3I’s core network to meet the increasing demand for data in the Indonesian market.
With a growing economy and ever more affordable connectivity, Indonesia - the fourth most populous country in the world - is experiencing rapid smartphone and 3G data service adoption. As a result, H3I is seeing data traffic double approximately every nine months.
Nokia will supply H3I with packet core technology in some of important cities in Indonesia, such as Surabaya, Semarang, Solo and Yogyakarta, which are considered the most densely populated cities in the country.
Nokia said that its technology will help H3I utilize its network resources better to deliver a differentiated service experience, while laying the foundation for network evolution to allow it to meet future customer data demands.
