Telstra strikes Cloud deal with Telkom Indonesia

Joint venture to deliver managed data network, security, Cloud and UC in Indonesia

Telstra and Telkom Indonesia have struck a deal to provide network application and services to Indonesian businesses, multi-nationals and Australian companies operating in Indonesia.

The joint venture will deliver locally supported managed data network and security services, as well as cloud and unified communications services.

Telstra global enterprise and services group executive, Brendon Riley, said the joint venture brought together two of the region’s leading telecommunication and enterprise service providers in a strategic partnership to deliver NAS for enterprises operating in Indonesia

“The JV (joint venture) is an important step in Telstra’s Asia strategy and aligns with our aim to build new growth businesses that leverage the strengths of our unique NAS capabilities," he said.

"We are excited to build a new market of enterprise solutions with Telkom,” Mr Riley said.

“By partnering with Telkom Indonesia in the fast growing NAS market we leverage local expertise, a respected brand and service capabilities.

He said the joint venture would offer an integrated end-to-end service, unique in the Indonesian market, by enabling NAS to be bundled with Telkom’s connectivity and sold through Telkom Indonesia and Telstra’s enterprise sales’ teams,” Mr Riley said.

Telkom chief executive, Arief Yahya, said he believed the joint venture would grow significantly, not only because of the partnership with Telstra, but also considering Telkom’s capabilities in network and data centre.
