MWC 2023 may almost be over but there’s still time for at least one more major show announcement involving giant vendor Nokia – this time with Indonesian telecommunications provider Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison (IOH).
Nokai and IOH have announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to launch an advanced enterprise campus private wireless network in key regions across Indonesia.
As part of the MoU, the Nokia private wireless solution will be deployed in East and Central Java, Sumatera and Kalimantan. The partners say the MoU marks a shared vision of IOH and Nokia to accelerate Indonesia’s digital transformation agenda.
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 and, in a country comprised of more than 17,000 islands, a planned port solution will improve operational efficiency with a high-grade digitalization platform.
Overall, 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.
Nokia says the industrial-grade private wireless solution, Modular Private Wireless, brings industry-leading levels of reliability and connectivity. It will help IOH customers use digital technologies to increase automation, ensure worker safety and security, and achieve new levels of quality, efficiency and productivity.
