FiberStar Indonesia and Huawei have agreed to expand their partnership while building a high-speed 1Tb/s backbone DWDM network that connects Jakarta to Surabaya.

Submarine cables and terrestrial cables will form a ring network with a total length of more than 3000km. Among some sites, the length of a single span exceeds 350km. Announced at the 2019 Pan Asia-Pacific ISP Summit in Bali, Indonesia and building on the existing relationship between the companies, the agreement will see FiberStar continue to work with Huawei on fixed networks and data centres to jointly promote the digital transformation of Indonesia.

Thomas Dragono, co-Founder and director of FiberStar, said: ‘Being the pioneer of Indonesia’s neutral infrastructure service, and considering Huawei’s advancement in the optical communications field, we have both decided to explore a deeper and stronger partnership. We will leverage the advanced DWDM and MPLS technology to expand the coverage of networks in Indonesia, and further facilitate the growth of the digital economy in Indonesia.’
