Title : A Survey on The Implementation of FTTX Services and Technologies in Indonesia: Best Practices and Lessons Learned from Other Asian Countries

Abstract :

This paper surveys the implementation and deployment of fiber-to-the-x (FTTX) services and technologies in Indonesia. Motivation of this study is to provide the mapping report of Indonesian current status and to determine about the playing key role behind the growing of national information communication and technology (ICT). More of it is to leverage ICT infrastructures to be a robust ICT connectivity across the Indonesia archipelago which later on can be used for many diverse applications such as disaster resilience and sustainable development. In this survey we use the systematic literature review (SLR) method by gathering data from Internet (journal articles, paper conferences, and websites) as our (secondary) resources. From our survey we recognize that there are three main problems which can slow down the FTTX growth and implementation in Indonesia, namely geographical barrier, deployment cost, and goverment regulation. We also compared the Indonesia’s FTTX growth with several Asian countries such as China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Philippines. From our findings, one of the best practices or lessons that we learn is that national governments must build the access to broadband or high-speed internet by owning the responsibilities for the infrastructures. By creating their own National Broadband Networks (NBNs) Plan, governments are hoping to bridge the digital divide, create employment and enhance the industrial productivity, and at the end to improve the overall economic development. In our point of view, cost estimation and techno-economic analysis is strongly related to the strategic network design
