Nokia today announced that Balitower, a leading provider of telecommunication tower and network infrastructure in Indonesia, will use Nokia WiFi Beacon 2 to provide high-speed internet to home users under a three-year frame contract. The project marks the first deployment of a mesh Wi-Fi 6 solution in Indonesia. Nokia’s Beacon 2 will allow the end users to enjoy high-speed internet throughout the premises and easily deploy and manage the Wi-Fi network through a mobile application.
Nokia WiFi Beacon 2 will allow Balitower to provide the end users with an intelligent, self-organizing and self-healing mesh system equipped with Wi-Fi management capabilities in the cloud. Nokia Beacon supports Wi-Fi 6, with higher speeds and lower latency, and enables Balitower to provide a consistently superior experience in every corner of the home.
Balitower is already using Nokia fiber access nodes, fiber modems and WiFi Beacon 1 to provide in-home Wi-Fi to its customers. The new deployment will enable extended coverage and enhance the end-user experience by delivering an intelligent mesh Wi-Fi 6 solution for homes.
Jap Owen Ronadhi, President Director of Balitower, said: “Nokia is our longstanding partner and we have been using its Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) solution. We are now delighted to work with Nokia to further enhance the quality of Wi-Fi experience for our subscribers. We are confident that Nokia’s world-class solution will help us provide a best-in-class network experience to the end users.”
KP Goh, President Director of Nokia Indonesia, said: “Quality indoor connectivity has become crucial as the digital ecosystem continues to become all pervasive. Nokia WiFi Beacon 2 will allow Balitower subscribers to enjoy reliable and high-speed internet in all areas of their homes. We look forward to supporting Balitower in ensuring an exceptional Wi-Fi experience for their users.”
