Varnion levels up broadband network in Indonesia with Nokia solutions

Varnion Technology Semesta (Varnion), an internet service provider (ISP) focused on the hospitality industry, will use Nokia’s solutions to modernise its broadband network. 

Varnion is upgrading its local area network (LAN) infrastructure from switch-based to PON-based. This transformation will enable Varnion to leverage automation and network insights, offering improved management, flexibility, scalability and reliability. 

As part of a three-year agreement, Nokia will supply its solution to transform the broadband experience for Varnion’s customers including more than 300 hotel chains, tourism centers, shopping malls and entertainment centers. 

Nokia’s solutions will also be used to provide capacity for 200,000 homes passed in Jabodetabek, Java and Bali. 

These include Nokia Altiplano Access Controller, which automates the network life-cycle management and enables service providers to easily manage the entire access network for greater operational efficiencies.

Alexander Budiman, CEO at Varnion Technology Semesta, said they decided to replace the existing solution with Nokia’s solution to future-proof their network infrastructure and to enhance the broadband experience for their customers. 

“Nokia’s Altiplano platform will empower us to delight our customers by delivering a more reliable and improved experience,” said Budiman. 

Sang Xulei, head of Network Infrastructure Reginal Business Center at Nokia Asia Pacific, said their solutions are helping ISPs, such as Varnion, in ensuring an enhanced end-user experience while future-proofing their networks. 

“Quality fiber-based fixed broadband services are crucial as our reliance on broadband-based services continues to expand for both professional and personal tasks,” said Xulei.
