Nokia and IOH to launch enterprise campus private wireless network across Indonesia

07 March 2023

Nokia and Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison (IOH) have announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to launch an advanced enterprise campus private wireless network in key regions across Indonesia.

The Nokia private wireless solution will be deployed in East and Central Java, Sumatera and Kalimantan. The partners say the MoU marks a shared vision of IOH and Nokia to accelerate Indonesia’s digital transformation agenda.

The collaboration will elevate industrial operations with highly reliable, low-latency connectivity in tandem with a programme closely linked to the government’s digital economic development plan. Zones vital to economic growth in Indonesia will be boosted by an advanced industrial network and, in a country comprised of more than 17,000 islands, a planned port solution will improve operational efficiency with a high-grade digitalization platform.

Totogi: telcos missing out on core opportunities

24 February 2023

Totogi warns telcos and MVNOs at Mobile World Congress Barcelona (MWC) that the industry is missing out on core opportunities to use public cloud-based software to develop data-driven innovation that creates a more personalized customer experience and grows average revenue per user (ARPU).

“The move to the public cloud in the telco industry is well underway. Yet we still see telcos and MVNOs hesitate in moving the majority of their workloads to the public cloud. The delay in adopting truly cloud-native applications will result in a loss of competitive market share and hinder companies from capitalizing on the next wave of innovation in smarter data use and artificial intelligence (AI) within the industry,” says Danielle Royston, acting CEO, Totogi. “To succeed in data-driven innovation, telcos must invest in creating value with data rather than devoting time and resources to managing and maintaining on-premise solutions. It takes a telco up to two years to transform its technical applications for the public cloud. To take advantage of the next wave of ARPU growth, the industry needs to embark on the journey now.”
