To deliver GSM, CDMA, and UMTS cellular coverage in Jakarta
STP or Solusi Tunas Pratama, a cellular distribution systems provider in Indonesia, has deployed FlexWave Prism outdoor DAS services from ADC Telecommunications to deliver GSM, CDMA, and UMTS cellular coverage in Jakarta.
According to ADC, the new system supports better coverage while enabling the elimination of macro cell towers, addressing the Indonesian government’s mandate to improve public safety and eliminate visual clutter in Jakarta. The new system will also allow local cellular providers to support traffic for value-added services such as police surveillance cameras and Wi-Fi networks.
ADC claims that the deployment will cover the very dense and capacity-strained central business district of Jakarta. Each remote will be fed and managed from a centralized base station hotel for Indonesia’s major cellular providers. In addition to supporting three different services, GSM 1800MHz, UMTS 2100MHz, and CDMA 850MHz, the Prism units offer digital simulcast services, a capability that helps reduce operational costs for STP by configuring the remote network to support multi-sector single operators or multi-operator microcell applications.
Nobel Tanihaha, president and CEO of STP, said: We held a competitive bidding process and we selected ADC because it offered the most cost-effective and efficient solution, along with a strong local support organization. With the ability to support multiple cellular operators and services with single set of remote antennas, the FlexWave Prism system was far more efficient than the others we evaluated.
