Telkom Indonesia has selected Japan’s NEC and hardware/software developer ADVA to deploy ‘time synchronisation solutions … to help the operator prepare its transport network to deliver time-sensitive 5G services across the country’. In a press release, the vendors note the new solution will support ‘precision time protocol telecom profile for phase/time synchronisation with full timing support from the network’, as recommended by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for the adoption of 5G networks. Furthermore, the network will reportedly ‘enable superior customer experiences even in dense urban areas, including Jakarta and other central cities’. Time synchronisation will also enable a flexible architecture that will accommodate the unique requirements for each region the operator serves.
