Indonesia's FiberStar has signed an agreement with Huawei to jointly expand high-speed fiber network services in the market.
FiberStar recently partnered with Huawei to build a 1Tbps backbone DWDM network linking Jakarta with Surabaya. The network consists of submarine and terrestrial cables that form a ring network with a total length of more than 3000 kilometers.
Building on this cooperation, the companies signed a memorandum of understanding at the Huawei ISP Summit Asia Pacific 2019 in Bali to strengthen collaboration in the field of fixed networks and data centers.
FiberStar co-founder and director Thomas Dragono said Huawei shares the company's vision for the digital transformation of Indonesia.
“Being the pioneer of Indonesia’s neutral infrastructure service, and considering Huawei’s advancement in the optical communications field, we have both decided to explore a deeper and stronger partnership,” he said.
“The consensus on the advantages of optical network technologies and evolution trends are the basis of cooperation between both parties. We will leverage the advanced DWDM and MPLS technology to expand the coverage of networks in Indonesia, and further facilitate the growth of the digital economy in Indonesia."
FiberStar was established in 2014 as a subsidiary of Indonesia's biggest conglomerate the Salim Group.
The company is Indonesia's biggest carrier-neutral infrastructure provider, offering coverage to 92 Indonesian cities across the nation's main islands including Sumatra, Java, Bali, Kalimantan, and Sulawesi.
