Huawei helps Biznet Build Next-Generation Intelligent Metro Network in Indonesia
Comprising more than 17,000 islands, Indonesia is the world's largest archipelagic state, earning it the name “The Land of 1,000 Islands.”
As an active economic participant in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Indonesia has been gradually expanding its telecom field since 2000. According to the United Nations, Indonesia has a population of 260 million, of which 93.4 million are Internet users.
The Internet intricately connects the thousands of physically isolated islands to the digital world, which creates huge potential for digital economic growth and presents great opportunities and challenges to local Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
Biznet was established in 2000 and is now the largest privately owned Internet Service Provider (ISP) in Indonesia. It is committed to providing users with fast and reliable network services.
Biznet offers direct connectivity to multiple tier-1 backbones and industry-leading Internet switches, delivering the fastest and shortest path to a destination. The ISP provides services like broadband access (metro Ethernet and metro Fiber to the Home – FTTH), data center hosting, and cloud services, to more than 100 cities across Indonesia.
Biznet's business is applicable to enterprises in various fields, including large-scale talent recruitment websites in the Asia Pacific region, popular Japanese convenience store chains, large fast-food chains in the United States, low-cost carriers in Indonesia, local travel and ticket retail websites, and famous resorts.
Biznet expects to become the leading enterprise in the Indonesian broadband access market. To support the current requirements and future plans of individual and enterprise customers, Biznet must first undergo its own digital transformation.
“As the leading telecommunication, data communication and multimedia service provider in Indonesia, Biznet continues to keep up with the ever-growing changes and we continues to make new technology innovations to be able to provide the best Internet service supported by the latest infrastructure and reliable networks for people of Indonesia,” President Director of Biznet Adi Kusma said.
Based on industry-leading NetEngine high-end routers and advanced Software-defined Network (SDN) architecture, the Huawei Intent-Driven Wide Area Network (WAN) Solution provides a highly reliable network that supports fast fault locating and smooth evolution. The New Biznet Fiber Network is a prime example, consisting of a terabit core router network, metro Ethernet 10G/100G distribution networks, and gigabit Passive Optical Network (PON) access technology that can deliver services with a capacity of up to 2.5 Gbit/s.
Biznet can help enterprises cope with even the heaviest traffic, so new travel and ticket retail websites do not need to worry about network connection faults.
Enterprises can then focus on core services like providing high-quality travel routes and cost-effective tickets, and improving the browsing and purchasing experience.
Hotels in Bali, Java, and Sumatra use the Biznet network to ensure a smooth network experience for guests and enhance operational efficiency and digitalization.
Since 2016, Biznet has established networks with great development potential in the regions of Kediri, East Java, Tegal, Central Java, Sukabumi, Purwokerto, Kudus, Batam, and Mojokerto, which has improved small business, education, and quality of life.
Adi Kusma added, “The New Biznet Fiber Network is a solution for the increasing demand of bigger capacity in the future.”
ISP service forms and business models will face huge opportunities and challenges in the intelligent society of the future. Network intelligence will become an urgent demand. IP networks will shift from the traditional device-centric network architecture to user-centric intent-driven networks, maximizing the business value of ISPs.
The ‘intelligence’ of IP networks includes network visualization, service agility, and intelligent O&M, which will usher technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data analytics.
The road to an intelligent world is long. Huawei will continually work closely with Biznet to become its best transformation partner.
