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

“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.

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.

He said this would be supported by Telkom's strong position in the enterprise market segment which was the target market of NAS.

It will be led by Phill Sporton, who was most recently executive director customer service delivery for Telstra, leading a team of over 15,000 people across three continents.
