INDUSTRY.co.id - Kupang - Telkomsel in 2017 built 63 base transceiver stations (BTS) in remote areas of several provinces through the Red and White program to support the community's equitable access distribution program throughout Indonesia.

The development of BTS-BTS Merah Putih will spread across several regions of Indonesia, such as in NTT (16 BTS), NTB (7 BTS), Maluku (11 BTS), Sulawesi (21 BTS), Papua (5 BTS), and Kepri (3 BTS), said Director of Telkomsel, Ririek Adriansyah, in Kupang, Monday (7/31/2017)

This all, he said, is an effort to support the government to declare telecommunication access throughout Indonesia.

Telkomsel continues to develop the network infrastructure to remote areas, including in populated areas that have not gained access to telecommunications.

The presence of 63 new base stations in these locations is expected to be able to serve the communication needs of approximately 120,000 people who previously had difficulty in accessing telecommunication services.

Since its first launch in 2008, Telkomsel Merah Putih project has successfully opened a network in 450 locations from the west end to the eastern tip of Indonesia, and continues to improve its services in terms of quality and capacity.

"Since the beginning of its operation 22 years ago, Telkomsel has a vision to unite Indonesia through the presence of telecommunication services in various locations in Indonesia, so that people can be connected whenever and wherever," he said.

Ririek added, now telecommunications is not only a major requirement of people in big cities, but also to the remote areas.

To that end, Telkomsel continues to strive to meet the needs of the community through cellular network services so that more and more people in remote areas enjoying telecommunication services with the same quality standards as other areas throughout Indonesia.

"We hope that the presence of these services can contribute to better change in various sectors in the related regions," he said.

In the Merah Putih program, Telkomsel is applying the technology of a "remote solution system" concept called a satellite-based "very small aperture terminal-internet protocol (VSAT-IP)" coupled with "power supply" technology using solar panels.

"This technology is a suitable communications service solution to be applied in remote areas with very limited infrastructure and extreme geographical conditions, such as rural and Indonesia's leading regions," he said.

With the implementation of this technology, customers can enjoy the services of voice, SMS, and data with adequate quality.
