Further to the partnership, a multi-million US dollar project was secured with a leading tier-1 Indonesian mobile network operator for 4G cellular backhaul over satellite.
This strategic partnership was formed to deliver on the mission of providing essential communication requirements to the people of Indonesia. This will enable enterprises to accelerate infrastructure deployment in the country. The roll-out of this 4G cellular backhaul over satellite for the tier-1 MNO is the first step in the strategic collaboration. The partnership will take on additional projects and address additional domains of the enterprise segment including mining and banking. Wavestream Group’s globally proven multi-service single platform and versatile VSAT equipment perfectly supports the large scope and potential of satellite connectivity in Indonesia for multiple market segments.
“Indonesia is big and wide country that is composed of thousands of islands requiring excellent connectivity of many types, including VSAT technology. Today, MNOs are rolling out 4G/LTE across the nation, with 5G coming soon to the major cities,” said Bobby Rasyidin, CEO of TRG Investama. “With our proven track record in the telecommunications infrastructure business, we believe the announced partnership with Wavestream Group, will support our nation to accelerate the infrastructure development.”
“Teleglobal have been using Wavestream equipment for more than 10 years,” said Candra Indianto, CEO Indo Pratama Teleglobal. “Under the new collaboration, Wavestream Group will deliver the newest cutting-edge ground segment equipment which will enhance current services performance and enable Teleglobal to offer cost effective new services to the Indonesian market.”
“Wavestream Group is committed to the Indonesian market and with the intent of executing on our vision of serving the unserved and underserved, we have invested over the past few years to strongly support the Indonesian customers, and are now pleased to partner with TRG as a major step in serving the Indonesian people,” said Abhay Kumar, Regional Vice President Asia-Pacific and North America for Wavestream Group. “Teleglobal, TRG and Wavestream Group have gone through a very thorough evaluation process prior to being selected by Indonesia’s tier-1 mobile operator to deliver cellular backhaul over satellite, thus leveraging Wavestream Group’s proven track record worldwide, and as such further solidifying our LTE backhauling leadership and demonstrating our technological superiority.”
