Telkomsel signs digital transformation MoU with Huawei

Indonesia's Telkomsel has signed a memorandum of understanding of Huawei focused on digital transformation of the operator's business.

The agreement will see the companies collaborate on the development of flexible service offerings for customers, user experience assurance and the development of enterprise mobile broadband services.

Telkomsel's digital transformation strategies are aimed at transforming the operator from a traditional telco to a provider of digital and data services.

Earlier this year, the operator worked with Huawei to migrate package quota management into Huawei's Unified Policy and Charging Controller (UPCC), part of the vendor's SmartPCC suite, as part of efforts to reduce operational complexity and time to market of new services.

Now the companies are expanding their collaboration in the mobile broadband field, and plan to jointly develop new core network solutions to accelerate the rollout of Telkomsel's new service offerings.

“Telkomsel and Huawei have established an in-depth partnership during the past decade. Thanks to Huawei's efforts and support, the Volume Base Offload project for quota management was delivered quickly and qualitatively in 2018,” Telkomsel CIO Montgomery A. Hong said.

“In terms of digital transformation strategies, Telkomsel would like to continue cooperating with Huawei for continuous business development."
