IOH and Nokia to launch private wireless networks across Indonesia

Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison (IOH) and Nokia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to launch advanced enterprise campus private wireless networks in East and Central Java, Sumatera, and Kalimantan

The collaboration is designed to elevate industrial operations with highly reliable, low-latency connectivity in tandem with a programme closely linked to the government’s digital economic development plan.

Zones vital to economic growth in Indonesia will be boosted by an advanced industrial network. In a country with more than 17,000 islands, a planned port solution will improve operational efficiency with a high-grade digitalisation platform.

The MoU seeks to build a more agile business environment that ensures IOH’s business customers keep pace with shifting demands, take advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT), and have guaranteed connectivity for people and machines.

“Digital transformation is the cornerstone of our plan to maximise Indonesia’s potential, maintain and grow our customer trust, strengthen our core business, and contribute to Indonesia’s digital economy in the future,” said Vikram Sinha, President Director and CEO of IOH.

“Using Nokia’s private wireless network as the foundation for their digital strategy, IOH’s customers will be able to use digital technologies to increase automation, ensure worker safety and security, and improve efficiency and productivity,” said Ricky Corker, Chief Customer Experience Officer of Nokia.
