BT has taken another "exciting step" in Indonesia, having been awarded the 'Siskomdat' (Data Communication Systems) operating licence in the republic.
BT is only the second global telecommunications operator to have been awarded the Siskomdat licence, which enables the firm to offer its portfolio of networked IT services and applications directly to customers in Indonesia.
The awarding of the licence coincides with BT celebrating its 30th anniversary in Asia Pacific, having established its regional operations in Hong Kong in 1985. That base now acts as its regional headquarters across Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa (AMEA).
BT supports over 1,000 corporate customers from 26 offices across the region, the company said in a statement.
Recently, it launched a new fibre ring in Singapore connecting six third-party data centres with BT's network, claiming that this would enhance capacity and resilience.
More than 28 new Ethernet Connect Global Points-of-Presence (PoPs) have also been added to the existing infrastructure over the course of the past six months, while additional Internet access points have been launched in Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Japan and South Africa.
"BT has come a long way in AMEA during the last 30 years. We've been investing in stronger infrastructure and better capabilities," said Kevin Taylor, president, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, BT Global Services.
"We are, more than ever, committed to helping our customers succeed by reaping the full benefits of global connectivity and of enterprise-grade cloud services.
"Being awarded the telecoms licence in Indonesia is another exciting step in helping our customers succeed in AMEA and across the world," he added.
