Indosat Ooredoo has announced its continued partnership with Huawei Indonesia as one of its strategic partners to build a state-of-the-art, programmable, 5G-ready transport network powered by Segment routing IPv6 (SRv6).

Huawei will deploy the network in the key areas of Jabodetabek, Surabaya and the rest of East Java & Bali, which will be the first commercial deployment of its kind in Asia Pacific. This enables a simple, scalable, agile and reliable network available on demand to Enterprises and Consumers alike.

Indosat Ooredoo is an Indonesia’s leading mobile operator, serving a growing subscriber base who rely on connectivity. With growing demand for mobile data consumption and with the emergence of newer technologies like Cloud Computing and Network slicing, this paradigm shift from Indosat Ooredoo ensures on-demand network services for its customers. This new technology along with Indosat Ooredoo wide fiber optic network expansions will enable cloud computing faster data connectivity with which Indosat Ooredoo looks to serve digital communities in much automated way.

In preparing for these future ready services in Indonesia, Indosat Ooredoo has undergone various steps of digital and the transport network transformation is a key element of this journey. After an in-depth analysis of the existing network and long-term goals, Indosat Ooredoo choses to deploy SRv6 IP solution.
