Telkomsel Selects Tektronix for Rollout of Next Generation Mobile Technology and Services
Tektronix' G35 and Spectra2 Solutions Provide Network Element Simulation and Load Testing Prior to Full Network Deployment

Tektronix, Inc. , a leading worldwide provider of communications network management and diagnostics solutions, expands its long-standing association with Telkomsel by providing additional protocol analyzer solutions for advanced network equipment evaluations in their new test lab set up. Telkomsel, the leading operator of cellular telecommunications services in Indonesia, extends its existing Tektronix test infrastructure of K12, K15 and Spectra solutions for GSM/GPRS testing to include a test platform comprising Tektronix' K1297-G35 and Spectra2 equipment. These solutions will address mobile network element simulation and load testing before live network deployment.

"Telkomsel has been using multiple Tektronix protocol analyzers for years for 2G/2.5G network testing," said Marfani Hasan, Manager, Switching Operation, Telkomsel. "We want to ensure high-performance levels of our network elements before we introduce next generation technology services to our customers. We are confident Tektronix' G35 and Spectra2 solutions will help us perform the required network element simulation and load tests before going live in the networks."

Building on Tektronix' recognized leadership in simulation and emulation of mobile network elements, the K1297-G35 provides the highest level of test performance available. The highly integrated, portable Spectra2 solution allows simulation of large-scale load conditions to enable validation of network signaling and media delivery at maximum stress levels.

"Today's mobile market is highly competitive, and our customers need robust and innovative test solutions that enable them to launch new services and network elements in the most effective and reliable way while reducing time to revenues," said Arif Kareem, Vice President, Network Diagnostics, Tektronix. "Telkomsel has been a valuable Tektronix customer for many years, and we are pleased to extend our association with them as they begin the next stage of their advanced technology introduction."
