, Singapore (PressExposure) April 24, 2009 -- The MAN implementation will leverage on the countryâs first 10 GB fibre optic infrastructure to give corporate users in high-rise buildings swift access to new ICON+ Metronet services at 10, 100 or 1,000 Mbps (mega bytes per second).
As a leading network provider in Indonesia, ICON+ has its sights set on becoming the preferred choice for telecommunications services users in the country. A subsidiary of PT PLN (Persero), the biggest electricity company in Indonesia, ICON+ provides fibre optic network which extends for more than 5,000 km across Java and Bali utilising PLNâs right of ways. Its broad client base consists of telecommunication operators, banks, manufacturers, and ISPs including contracts with the countryâs biggest cellular, fixed line operator and the largest Indonesian bank.
This project requires Datacraft to provide IT services including Metro Ethernet routing infrastructure, Network design and topology, as well as staff training and ongoing support through Uptime maintenance services. Upon completion, the new MAN will enable telecommunications service carriers and business users alike to deliver a wide variety of sophisticated services quickly, reliably and cost-effectively to thousands of customers across the targeted area. The high volume network will also allow a wide variety of services to be offered including: Point-to-Point Layer 2 MPLS VPN; Ethernet Relay Services (ERS); Ethernet Wire Services (EWS); Multipoint Layer 2 MPLS VPN; Layer 3 MPLS VPN; Intranet; Extranet; and basic Internet access.
"ICON+ aims to be the preferred choice for telecommunications services users in Indonesia. We value Datacraft's Cisco Metro-E expertise and track record in the region as well as their close relationships with carriers. Datacraft has given ICON+ the best of both worlds with this new network proposal and implementation: the cost-effectiveness of a virtual private network and the high volume capacity of optical fibre â but without the need for traffic to traverse the Internet. We also have the additional benefit of Datacraft's professional network management service. The end result is a highly cost-effective next generation network." said Yulianto Sri Hartadi, Marketing and Service Development Manager for ICON+.
âIn designing and implementing a network, it is critical to ensure that the infrastructure is highly scalable and well-positioned for future applications. Given the rapid business growth ICON+ enjoyed, we have designed a network that has a highly expandable capacity so as to cater to the rapid growth in traffic volume and bandwidth demand,â said Patrap Yakin, General Manager for Datacraft Indonesia. âAnother advantage for ICON+ is that with the additional PoPs set up across Jakarta, its new corporate users can quickly and easily sign up for the network and get their services activated in a matter of days â instead of weeks.â
