Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced the opening of a new innovation centre and LTE demonstration in Bandung, in collaboration with Telkomsel, the leading operator in Indonesia. The Indonesian telecommunications ministry officials and Telkomsel executives witnessed LTE high spectrum efficiency. Using Huawei's SingleRAN LTE solution, the downlink data rate can reach up to 71.4Mb/s with 10 MHz bandwidth.
Huawei worked closely with Telkomsel on the construction of the new R&D facility to support on-demand high definition video, FTP throughput, live high-speed Internet, and digital shopping mall demonstrations.
Paul Michael Scanlan, Vice President of Huawei South Pacific said: "Based on customer-centric innovation, and by sharing intellectual property rights with the industry and complying with international IPR rules, Huawei has become the leading LTE industry player and a key contributor to LTE standards and patents".
"Huawei has established more than 20 joint innovation centers with global leading operators around the world, like this one with Telkomsel, and is now leading the strong development of the LTE industry in Indonesia by transforming advanced technologies into customer competitiveness and success in business," said Mr. Paul Scanlan.
Huawei, being Telkomsel's strategic partner, has already prepared Telkomsel for LTE by thoroughly implementing its SingleRAN products in its network.
Mr. Scanlan said: "Huawei Indonesia is deeply honored to collaborate together with Telkomsel in its innovation Center. We believe that the center will be an important platform not only for research and training purposes, but also to explore and develop other future promising applications and products that can help to create a better end-user experience."
Huawei is committed to helping operators worldwide to maximize the efficiency of its assets, and ultimately, to help operators achieve commercial success. LTE will undoubtedly be the mobile operators' best choice to further develop its mobile broadband capabilities.
