JAKARTA and PARIS - Alcatel-Lucent and Telkom Akses, the Telkom Indonesia subsidiary responsible for building a national broadband infrastructure, have announced plans for the delivery of fiber to the premises (FTTx) ultra-broadband access for millions of subscribers in Indonesia, a predominantly rural and agricultural nation comprised of over 17,000 islands. The expansion is part of the Indonesian government’s program to provide ultra-broadband access across the country.

Expanding National Broadband Infrastructure to 15 million Subscribers
Telkom Indonesia, the largest telecommunications services company in Indonesia and majority owned by the government has, through Telkom Akses, the responsibility for expanding the national broadband infrastructure to 15 million subscribers by 2015 as part of the TITO (Trade In Trade Off) Access Modernization Project, which is replacing legacy copper cabling with optical fiber.

Once deployed in Indonesia, Alcatel-Lucent’s technology will allow the delivery of a range of consumer and business services including IPTV, video on demand, voice over IP (VoIP) and more at speeds of up to 100 Megabits per second.

"Deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s GPON technology in Indonesia’s eastern region will contribute greatly to achieving our country’s goal of closing the digital divide and giving all of our people access to broadband whether they are living closely together in our cities or widely dispersed in our rural areas," said Badriyanto, CEO of Telkom Akses. "We believe that providing reliable and affordable ultra-broadband on a national level will positively and significantly impact Indonesia’s citizens in the areas of economics, education and healthcare by providing a richer, more interactive experience.”

Key Facts:

  • Telkom Akses has responsibility for taking broadband penetration in Indonesia from about 2 percent to 30 percent by the end of 2015

  • Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) product family, which supports GPON enabling fiber-to-the-premises.

  • Alcatel-Lucent is a global leader in fixed broadband access, supporting mass deployments of video, voice and data services. Today, one out of three fixed broadband subscribers around the world is served through an access network provided by Alcatel-Lucent. Alcatel-Lucent is involved in over 100 FTTH projects worldwide, over 85 of which are with GPON.

  • Alcatel-Lucent’s work in Indonesia’s Eastern Region aligns with its recently announced Shift Plan which significantly focuses the company on providing high-speed broadband
