In a recent release, Indosat Ooredoo, South East Asian telecom operator, announced that it is partnering with NetFoundry, a cloud native networking company, to introduce what they are calling Network-as-a-Service (NaaS).

Indosat Ooredoo serves thousands of companies in Indonesia, reportedly covering almost 90 percent of Indonesia’s population.

“Indosat Ooredoo’s vision is to become leading digital telco in Indonesia. In this challenging situation, amid COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to support the Government and the people of Indonesia,” said Bayu Hanantasena, Chief Business Officer of Indosat Ooredoo. “Our capacities and solutions are enabling the seamless communication modern workers need to operate at a new ‘normal’, enabled by a reliable and secure network. Our new partnership with NetFoundry will make this possible because our networks are quicker, safer and easier to operate than ever before.”

According to the announcement, this partnership is designed to advance Indosat Ooredoo in Indonesia through Network-as-a-Service (NaaS), and its IoT and SaaS applications. The partnership will focus, the company said, on combining service bundling with cloud and connectivity, and growing influence through leveraging NetFoundry’s partnerships with Amazon Web Services, Google and Azure.

 “Indosat Ooredoo has decided to change gears, become the first digital services player to create a journey of ecosystem orchestrator and differentiate itself from a traditional telco and has built its services around applications in the modern and multi-cloud world, where data must be reliable, secure and delivered anywhere, anytime without depending on traditional methods and networks,” said Dipesh Ranjan, VP and Managing Director of Asia Pacific, NetFoundry. “Indosat NaaS will enable both NetFoundry and Indosat Ooredoo to go one step further for Indonesia customers.”
