Increasing Network Capacity

Anticipating the traffic increase during Christmas 2013, New Year 2014 and this year-end holiday, Indosat Ooredoo increases the capacity of all telecommunication services either in voice, text, or data. For the voice traffic capacity, Indosat Ooredoo increases it to 2,340 million minutes / day (39 million Erlang / day), for SMS capacity increased to 1,285 billion SMS / day, while for the data, Indosat Ooredoo increases the capacity to 1075 terabytes / day. Nationally, until the third quarter of 2014, Indosat Ooredoo had served 54.2 million customers, supported by a total of 37,382 BTS.

"The increase of capacity is based on the experiences of telecommunication traffic in Christmas, New Year and the year-end holidays in the previous years as well as the estimated traffic increase in this year so that the capacity is expected to anticipate the occurred traffic increase.
