Indonesia’s FiberStar Selects Nokia to deliver advanced services


FiberStar, Indonesia’s national infrastructure service provider, has chosen Nokia’s equipment and services to help deploy state-of-the-art Internet Protocol Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) Metro Ethernet networks in 48 cities across the islands of Java and Bali.

The IP/MPLS network uniqueness is in scalability and flexibility in relaying data, enabling FiberStar to deliver outstanding performance, improve uptime and reduce network congestion. Eventually, the network will allow people to enjoy high speed broadband and other high quality of IP-based services.

Nokia’s solution for FiberStar network includes its 7750 Service Router (SR) family, which provides high-performance networking and supports the delivery of advanced services. This paves the way for leveraging future Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) services.

The deployment is also facilitated by the Nokia 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) , which helps streamline operations by integrating IP and optical layers of the network infrastructure. This reduces operational costs and lets FiberStar offer increasingly dynamic services.

Sugiharto Darmakusuma, President Director at FiberStar, said: “The new and scalable IP/MPLS network will help us fulfill our customer’s needs. FiberStar has partnered with Nokia because we have the same passion to accelerate national development and improve the quality of life for Indonesians through high-speed broadband connections. With Nokia’s proven expertise, we will be able to provide high-speed broadband data, voice and TV cable services to our customers.”

Robert Cattanach, head of Indonesia at Nokia, said: “After deploying 100G transport services for FiberStar in Java and Bali , we are pleased to announce this new IP/MPLS deployment, which will help FiberStar evolve its network to offer enhanced quality and new services to its customers. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with FiberStar.”
