NEC Secures Mobile Backhaul IP Migration Project with Indonesia’s Indosat


***For immediate use August 29, 2008
Tokyo, August 29, 2008 - NEC Corporation announced today its selection by PT Indosat Tbk (Head Office: Jakarta, Indonesia; Hereinafter: “Indosat”), Indonesia’s second largest mobile phone carrier, to implement a mobile backhaul* IP migration project that utilizes existing networks to transfer systems into the latest IP structure.
 *a mobile access network that accommodates a variety of base stations

The new project is composed of ultra-compact microwave communications systems, “PASOLINK,” and “CX2600” service consolidation switches.

In order to remain competitive throughout Indonesia’s fierce battle for domestic market share, Indosat is seeking to have its entire 3G network prepared for IP at the earliest possible stage. This latest project capitalizes on the CX2600 to manage existing legacy circuits and bundle them into an IP structure. The system is then incorporated with PASOLINK technologies in order to create an all-IP-based mobile backhaul that holds operational costs in check by taking advantage of existing infrastructure and smoothly transferring to IP.

As traffic annually increases due to the diffusion of broadband through 3G, demand from the Indonesian mobile infrastructure market to quickly implement all-IP systems that utilize existing infrastructure continues to grow as well.

In addition to the Indosat project, NEC has also been selected to provide similar systems in Columbia and Tunisia, which demonstrate the company’s commitment to proactively develop and provide mobile broadband solutions that drive the expansion of such services as WiMAX, HSPA and more.
