Internet promotion of public services, Kominfo prepares to mitigate through Hot backup satellite
The government continues to accelerate the development of digital infrastructure in Indonesia. Through the Satellite Republic of Indonesia (SATRIA) 1 project, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology is promoting and expanding Internet access for public services throughout Indonesia.
The Agency for Access to Communications and Information (BAKTI) of the Ministry of Communications and Informatics provides Hot backup satellite (HBS) to mitigate the risks of the SATRIA-1 satellite, which has a high degree of complexity and the potential for operational disruptions.
SATRIA-1 uses a new, sophisticated and complex High Throughput Satellite (HTS) technology so that the risk of potential problems in construction and operation is very high. In this regard, to mitigate all the risks of SATRA-1, BAKTI Kominfo plans to provide HBS,” explained BAKTI Director at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics Anang Latief at the press conference on the appointment of the project winners. Hot backup satellitewhich occur simultaneously virtual From Komeninfo Media Centre, Central Jakarta, Friday (03/11/2022).
President Director Anang Latif stated that the government continues to strive to provide ICT infrastructure across all lines so that the public can participate in accelerating the national digital transformation.
Currently, accelerating the development of digital infrastructure is the mainstay for providing digital services and supporting digital transformation in accordance with the program launched by the government. This year, we certainly hope that all the villages and sub-regions of Indonesia will becoverage by base transceiver station (BTS)”.
The head of BAKTI, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, stated that it has signed a government cooperation agreement with business entities (KPBU) to provide SATRIA-1 in 2019. The existence of this multifunctional satellite aims to accelerate the distribution of digital infrastructure, especially in backward, border regions, and external (3T) and border areas.
“The government is using optical fibers to improve digital communication until the policy launches HTS SATRIA-1. The multi-functional satellite is used to supplement the fiber-optic cable network that has been built,” he explained.
According to Chief Executive Officer Anang Latief, the SATRIA-1 capacity is set to be 150 Gbps.
“To provide internet services at 150,000 public service points consisting of educational facilities, local governments, defense and security administration and health facilities across Indonesia, which still lack digital connectivity,” he said.
In addition to the main function as a backup for SATRIA-1, the Director of BAKTI at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics stated that the provision of HBS aims to increase the speed of the Internet while increasing the speed of the Internet at the same time. User Experience Internet access service users to support public service.
“This HBS provisioning project will be at 80Gbps using HTS technology with Ka-Band frequency,” he said.
Chief Director Anang Latif hopes that the existence of the HBS project can provide benefits for improving the quality of public services in government agencies. According to him, the potential beneficiaries of the HBS project will first be used by agencies within the Ministry of Education, Culture and Higher Education in the 3T district.
“To support the provision of fast internet services in 93,400 primary, junior high, secondary, vocational, and Islamic schools and boarding schools. It is not only for the implementation of the Computer-Based National Examination (UNBK), but also for the teaching and learning process from the start,” he explained.
Secondly, the HBS project also provides benefits by supporting the services of 3,700 health centers, hospitals and other health services.
“Therefore, the Ministry of Health can have fast internet services Database The Director of Pakti at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics said that public health will be more complete and integrated with the center.
Third, according to Chief Administrator Anang Latif, the British Defense Forces and Bole can make use of HBS services at 3,900 points to support fast internet services for security management that should be more reliable.
Then, fourth, for local governments, up to 47,900 office points in villages, sub-provinces as well as sub-regions in Indonesia will be directly connected Online
“So the e-government services (The electronic governmentIt can be implemented quickly and effectively.”
In fact, according to Anang Latief, it can also help the Ministry of Finance support the acceleration of the digitization of the distribution of Ultra Microfinance (UMi), in order to accelerate the realization of inclusive finance across Indonesia.
The Director of BAKTI at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics emphasized that the main objective of accelerating the digital transformation being implemented in Indonesia should be to provide significant benefits from the digital sector that can be felt by all levels of society.
He stressed that “digital transformation must lead to a faster internet, a smarter digital society, more SME players and digital startups, and healthier and more productive digital spaces.”
7 ground stations and 2 SCC
The HBS project will include seven ground stations spread across several cities in Indonesia, including Banda Aceh, Bengkulu, Cikarang, Gresik, Banjarmasin, Tarakan and Kupang. In addition, the HBS project will have two Set satellite control center (Saudi Cable Company) primary And the to support.
For Saudi Cable Company primary It is located in Cikarang, Bekasi, West Java where there is antenna and RF subsystemIt is located in Banda Aceh. Then, SCC to support Located in Banjarmasin with Antenna and RF subsystem“He’s in Kupang,” explained Director Anang Latif, the president.
The head of BAKTI, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, stated that the construction of the HBS project will start in the first quarter of 2022. It will be launched in the first quarter of 2023 so that it will be commissioned in the fourth quarter of 2023 and the community can feel the benefits.
As for the HBS project satellite manufacturer, Boeing, and using rocket launcher From Space-X, specifically Falcon 9. As for the orbital aperture using boss Indonesia is in the 113th notch east.”
Infrastructure Purchases (Capital expendituresThe provision of HBS, according to the Managing Director, Anang Latief, requires an investment of IDR 5,208,984,690,000, including VAT.
“Meanwhile, the cost of operating and maintaining HBS Infrastructure is IDR 47,204,320,000, including value-added tax annually for a 15-year operating period,” he said.
The Director of BAKTI at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics explained that the implementation of procurement of the HBS provision project refers to the executive regulations of the head of the Communications Agency and Access to Information No. 4 of 2021 regarding the procedures for purchasing goods / services. Hot backup satellite.
“The provision of HBS is also in line with Indonesia’s first digital roadmap, which is to accelerate infrastructure to expand public access to the Internet in order to accelerate digital transformation,” he said.
Chairman Director Anang Latif stated that the Electoral Working Group Chairman announced the results of the tender for the HBS Provision Project on February 25, 2022. Based on the results of the announcement, the Nusantara Jaya Partnership was determined as the tender winner. Furthermore, the Ministry of Communications and Informatics appointed BAKTI Partnership Nusantara Jaya as the provider for the hot backup satellite project on March 10, 2022.
“The Nusantara Jaya partnership consists of PT Satellite Nusantara Lima, PT DSST Mas Gemilang, PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara and PT Palapa Satelit Nusa Sejahtera,” he said.
The Director of BAKTI at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics assessed that Indonesia’s geographic situation as an archipelagic country requires challenges in the provision of terrestrial networks.
“This is the main reason for how difficult it is to overcome the digital connectivity divide in Indonesia, so satellite technology is one of the right solutions,” he said.
