Indosat Ooredoo and Huawei Indonesia are building a state-of-the-art, programmable, 5G-ready transport network powered by segment routing IPv6 (SRv6).

Building on their partnership, Huawei will deploy the network in the key areas of Jabodetabek, Surabaya and the rest of East Java and Bali, which the two said will be the first commercial deployment of its kind in the Asia Pacific region.

The development will pave the way for a “simple, scalable, agile and reliable network available on demand to enterprises and consumers alike”.

Andy Ma, CEO of Huawei Indonesia Carrier Business, said: “Huawei Indonesia has been supporting Indosat Ooredoo over many years, and is especially honor to be able to support Indosat Ooredoo to build 5G-oriented, intelligent SRv6-based IP transport network. Huawei has launched the industry's first committed SLA IP solution to provide premium transmission services for a wide variety of vertical industries in the 5G era. The solution has been widely deployed in multiple leading operators around the world. Huawei anticipates making IP transport networks even more intelligent through our continued cooperation with Indosat Ooredoo.”

The development is also set to enhance on-demand network services for Indosat Ooredoo customers, meeting the growing demand for mobile data consumption and leveraging such emerging technologies as cloud computing and network slicing.

This new technology along with Indosat Ooredoo’s wide fibre optic network expansions, is expected to enable cloud computing and faster data connectivity.

Medhat Elhusseiny, CTIO at Indosat Ooredoo said: “As part of Indosat Ooredoo’s digital transformation journey, addressing our consumers and enterprise customers’ increasing demands for cloud computing, IoT services, on-demand and scalable network requirements, we are excited to partner with Huawei to build Next-Generation Programmable Network Infrastructure by delivering Asia Pasific’s first SRv6-based 5G-ready transport network. With this we hope we can bring more value and enhance our customers experience for digital services especially for latency sensitive & real time applications”
