FiberStar, Indonesia’s national infrastructure service provider, has chosen Nokia’s equipment and services to help deploy IP/MPLS Metro Ethernet networks in 48 cities across the islands of Java and Bali.
The scalability and flexibility of the new IP/MPLS network in relaying data will enable FiberStar to deliver better performance, improve uptime and reduce network congestion, Nokia said.
Eventually, FiberStar will use the network to offer triple-play services to its customers, opening new revenue streams, Nokia said.
Nokia’s solution for FiberStar includes its 7750 Service Router (SR) family, which provides high-performance networking and supports the delivery of advanced services, paving the way for leveraging future SDN and NFV services.
The deployment is also facilitated by the Nokia 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM), which helps streamline operations by integrating IP and optical layers of the network infrastructure. This reduces operational costs and lets FiberStar offer increasingly dynamic services.
“The new and scalable IP/MPLS network will help us fulfill our customer’s needs,” said Sugiharto Darmakusuma, President Director at FiberStar.
Robert Cattanach, head of Indonesia at Nokia, said, “After deploying 100G transport services for FiberStar in Java and Bali, we are pleased to announce this new IP/MPLS deployment, which will help FiberStar evolve its network to offer enhanced quality and new services to its customers.”
Apart from IP/MPLS equipment, Nokia will also provide professional services including network design, training and maintenance for up to five years.
