XL Axiata, the second largest mobile operator in Indonesia with over 100 million subscribers has selected Ericsson to deploy the 4G LTE and 3G/WCDMA indoor small cell solution based on Ericsson Radio Dot System and Ericsson Micro Remote Radio Unit (mRRU).

The solution is designed to integrate seamlessly with XL Axiata's LTE and 3G/WCDMA network, and will enable the operator to expand indoor app coverage and network capacity. As a result, XL Axiata can offer its subscribers high-quality voice and data experiences in more in-building locations. Initial rollout will take place at Jakarta International Airport and represents the first commercial implementation of its kind in Indonesia.

Under the terms of the agreement, Ericsson will also provide turnkey project management, design, implementation and tuning services. 

Dian Siswarini, President Director, XL Axiata
We see Ericsson's Radio Dot solution as the right fit to our commitment to continuously improve the mobile service experience for our customers. With the solution, XL Axiata's subscribers will enjoy a better indoor experience whereas we also enjoy the fast and easy deployment of the system.

Thomas Jul, Head of Ericsson Indonesia and Timor Leste
Indoor environments pose particular challenges for operators in terms of complexity, scalability and service continuity. At the same time, consumers expect high-quality voice and data coverage regardless of location.
