This includes providing secure and reliable connectivity services to cloud and data center solutions, allowing enterprise customers to easily store data and increase team productivity in a secure and integrated manner. Enterprises will also benefit from dedicated connections to highly secure branches and data centers, which will better safeguard customer data with high bandwidth. Furthermore, XL Axiata will be able to provide comprehensive service management with a SLA of 99.5%.

SOLUTION

Scalable, operationally intelligent network

A veteran Juniper customer, XL Axiata decided to expand its use of Juniper solutions as it embarked on its FTTH and 5G deployment journey.

“Juniper’s 400G and SRv6 routing solutions deliver the greater levels of reliability, scalability and simplified network operations we needed to move quickly with new, competitive Internet and 5G deployments,” says Fadly Hamka, group head - network planning and design at the XL Axiata.

XL Axiata is migrating from MPLS to SRv6, with Juniper’s portfolio of 400G MX Series Universal Routing Platforms. The new network will deliver high performance and unprecedented scale, allowing XL Axiata to deliver excellent subscriber experiences as demand for mobile and fiber Internet rises.

As the first customer to deploy Juniper’s SRv6 solution, XL Axiata worked closely with Juniper Professional Services on the design and implementation to help ensure a successful migration and interoperability with its existing MPLS network.

OUTCOME

Bringing world-class connectivity to Indonesia

Investment in high-speed networks, including expanding 4G and rolling out 5G, is a strategic pillar in Indonesia’s digital economy and post-pandemic recovery plans, and XL Axiata now has a modern network  ready to meet the latest digital needs of consumers and businesses.

Juniper 400G and SRv6 deliver new levels of agility, scale, and control. A phased deployment preserves the company’s capital investment and operational knowledge in Juniper routing, mitigating the risk of change as it meets heightened demands.

“With Juniper we can prepare for 5G and the future,” says Beny Dwi Setyawan, head of transport at XL Axiata. “We gain greater capacity and automation capabilities while preserving our operational knowledge.”
