Alcatel-Lucent’s GPON solution will be part of Indonesia’s national program to generate economic, educational and health development through delivery of countrywide fiber to the premises

Jakarta/Paris, March 10, 2014

Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) 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.

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.

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 industry-leading Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM) product family, which supports GPON enabling fiber-to-the-premises.

  • 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
