- Altobridge lite-site(TM) - The Solution of Choice for Pan-Indonesian Roll-out
PT Indosat Tbk - the second largest mobile operator in Indonesia, has selected Altobridge, a leading provider of mobile telecommunications solutions, as its supplier of choice to bring mobile connectivity to remote communities across Indonesia.
Deployment of the Altobridge lite-sites(TM) is already underway amongst previously unconnected communities in West Sulawesi. The low-cost, solar-powered Altobridge solution will bring voice, SMS and mobile data connectivity, for the first time, to communities and enterprises across Indonesia.
Steve Hobbs, Indosat Director and Chief Technology Officer, said, "Bringing mobile connectivity to thousands of unconnected communities in Indonesia is part of our vision to provide products and services, which enhance the quality of life of the communities we operate in.
"We chose the Altobridge lite-site(TM) because it enables us to optimize our capital budget, while, operationally, it minimizes our backhaul costs and, equally important, it is power efficient and ideally suited for solar."
Aoife Sexton, President Remote Community Solutions at Altobridge, said, "We specialize in delivering a low capital cost and low operational cost wireless network solution for the world's unconnected communities and enterprises. We are delighted to have been chosen by Indosat in this hugely important growth economy."
Altobridge wireless network solutions provide a lower capital and lower operating cost option for the delivery of voice and mobile broadband services, enabling mobile network operators to connect unconnected communities and enterprises at minimum cost.
Central to this lie a series of patented and patent-pending technologies, namely: Data at the Edge(TM) (data optimization in wireless networks), Local Connectivity(TM) (local voice switching) and Split Architecture(TM) (transmission and power optimization), all of which - individually and combined - drive down communications delivery costs for mobile network operators, by reducing backhaul and power consumption costs.
The Altobridge lite-site(TM) is designed to meet the needs of 100 to 1,500-size subscriber communities.
Altobridge solutions are deployed and operational in over 20 countries worldwide.
The company is headquartered in Ireland and has four further bases in Malaysia, Indonesia, China and the US, covering sales, R&D, customer support and manufacturing.
