STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, Jul 14 (MARKET WIRE) —
* Telkomsel turns to Ericsson for cost-efficient data traffic management
* Better service offerings available to more than 86 million Indonesians,
based on their network use and needs
* Operator can handle traffic more efficiently, ensuring users get the
services they pay for, even during network peak hours
With more than 5 billion mobile subscriptions globally and traffic growth
skyrocketing, there is a critical need for operators to prioritize traffic
in the network and differentiate between subscribers so that each user
gets the speed, access and quality they are paying for. Now Indonesia’s
leading operator Telkomsel has taken action by being the first to
introduce a new Dynamic End-to-End Policy Control solution enabling
service differentiation for their 86 million subscribers. The solution
will be delivered by Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC).
Telkomsel’s efficient utilization of radio and transport networks will be
enhanced through deployment of the policy control solution. Ericsson’s
data traffic management solution design is based on the principles of
supply and demand where available capacity is shared according to
subscribers’ different policy agreements. Data traffic is prioritized so
that higher-paying subscribers get access, high speed and quality even
during network peak hours, while other users receive different priority.
Sarwoto Atmosutarno, President Director of Telkomsel, says: “As traffic is
growing with more capacity-demanding services and higher download speeds,
we must adjust to our users’ different expectations and needs. With our
new solution, subscribers will be able to choose a pricing option that
best suits their individual needs, depending on what services or
applications they’re using and how much they’re willing to pay.”
Johan Wibergh, head of Ericsson’s Business Unit Networks, says: “The
competition is intensifying, and operators need to ensure that users get
the quality of service that they expect and are willing to pay for. By
customizing the pricing plan for each specific user segment, Telkomsel
will improve their operations and business, and most likely attract even

End-to-End Policy Control solution is compliant with the 3GPP standard
