ZTE and Telkomsel Present 5G Use Cases at Telkomsel 5G Launch Event
JULY 02, 2021
Jakarta. ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, participated in the first commercialization of the 5G network in Indonesia launched by Telkomsel.
Through the Telkomsel 5G launch event which held recently, Telkomsel has become the first cellular operator to roll out 5G network in Indonesia. As the partner, ZTE supported Telkomsel by presenting 5G use cases, which are 5G patrol robots and cloud gaming at Telkomsel 5G launch in Jakarta.
Based on the real 5G network environment, 5G patrol robots can upload high-definition images and sensor information in real time by using 5G ultra-large bandwidth and ultra-low latency to realize positioning, path planning and automatic obstacle avoidance. Furthermore, there are wide application prospects for 5G patrol robots. The sophistication from robots can also help for security inspections and ensure personal safety in dangerous scenarios.
Cloud gaming, as an important application scenario in the 5G era, is also a new application field of mobile internet. Users utilize high-speed 5G network to send their commands to the cloud and then the cloud streams back the rendered frames to local devices. Thus, this allows users instant access to graphically demanding games via 5G smartphones. Also, users don’t need to download and install the games on the devices, which helps bring them a smooth “games on demand” experience.
In addition to supporting the launch of Telkomsel 5G which was held in Jakarta, ZTE also supported the launch of Telkomsel 5G in Makassar. On this occasion, ZTE prepared interactive booths to display various 5G scenarios which can be useful for the industry and society in Indonesia, including drones, virtual reality (VR) and cloud gaming.
ZTE's 5G-based drone booth displays live video from drones supported by end-to-end 5G connectivity in conducting surveillance around the Grapari Pettarani Makassar building. The 5G network is able to improve drone performance which is useful in various industrial sectors including Traffic Monitoring & Control. Some of the benefits of 5G networks for drones include increasing object scanning speed, providing HD image quality in object recognition, monitoring vehicle movements in real-time and increasing efficiency in conducting surveillance.
Furthermore, at the 5G VR Live booth, visitors can experience a virtual tour using VRtechnology supported by 5G to several interesting tourist destinations in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara. The 5G network supports VR technology to produce high-quality images that provide a more realistic traveling experience and allow users to interact in an environment.
Meanwhile, at the 5G Games Experience Booth, visitors can play the best games from cloud gaming platforms supported by the 5G network. With higher bandwidth and ultra-low latency, 5G allows users to stream games at high speeds without having to download onPCor game consoles and provides better picture quality without lag.
ZTE and Telkomsel consider their collaboration as a successful example of applying 5G to vertical industries. The two companies will leverage their advantages to innovate and explore more 5G application scenarios in various industries.
“ZTE has been working closely with operators and vertical sectors on exploring new business models and use cases to achieve high network performance in those scenarios,” Erick Xu, Sales Director of ZTE Indonesia said at the event with the theme of "Telkomsel 5G: Unlock The Future".
“We are very pleased to collaborate with Telkomsel in welcoming 5G, bringing a new level of connectivity that has never existed before. Moving forward, ZTE will continue to facilitate operators in deploying networks and taking a first step in the commercialization of 5Gthrough innovative and reliable solutions and products, jointly exploring the 5 Industry Development,” Erick Xu said.
Hendri Mulya Syam, CEO of Telkomsel said “Telkomsel has always been a leader in telecommunications technology in Indonesia. Over the last several years, we have invested significantly to build up our 5G know-how, talent development and a comprehensive set of plans in bringing 5G to Indonesia. Therefore, we are excited to be the first operator to launch 5G in Indonesia. Our next commitment is to make sure that 5G is available to everyone in Indonesia. Telkomsel will gradually expand our 5G coverage and develop digital solutions through 5G best quality service, high speed and low latency network which are better than 4G. We are looking forward to strengthening our collaboration with ZTE and other stakeholders in the 5G ecosystem to enable network, services, and solutions that are beneficial and accessible for business, government and society in general."
