PAPUADAILY –Lintasarta participates in realizing the acceleration of digital transformation in Papua and West Papua, through the construction of a base transceiver station (BTS). Currently, BTS is one of the important things in supporting the acceleration of national digital transformation. This is included in the digital transformation agenda echoed by the government for equitable access to communication and information throughout Indonesia.
To support the realization of the acceleration of digital transformation, Lintasarta as a total information and communication technology (ICT) solution company together with the Huawei consortium and PT Surya Energi Indotama (SEI) participated in the construction of the 3T Regional 4G BTS Project (Lagged, Frontier, and Outermost) in the Provinces of Papua and West Papua.
“With the construction of 4G BTS in Papua and West Papua, we hope that there will be no more areas that have not enjoyed digital communication facilities. We are happy and proud to be part of the government’s commitment to accelerate digital transformation in the Indonesian region through the construction of BTS,” said Lintasarta President Director Arya Damar.
Arya further said that Lintasarta together with the Huawei and SEI consortium were tasked with realizing the construction of BTS in 1,795 locations in the West Papua and Papua (Central & West Part) areas, the work being carried out in stages in 2021 and 2022.
“We have conducted a survey and carried out an overall installation feasibility test at these locations before carrying out the construction of BTS,” he explained, Tuesday (12/10/2021).
Arya said, specifically for the West Papua region, the 4G BTS construction sites are spread across 7 districts, namely Maybrat, Raja Ampat, Sorong, South Sorong, Tambrauw, Bintuni Bay, and Wondama Bay.
“The weather factor and access to the location is a challenge that is ready to be faced. Some of the construction sites are located in islands that can only be reached by boats/speedboards. We have carried out mitigation and efforts to overcome these challenges, including working with the local Dandim or Polres,” he added.
Thus, Arya hopes that the construction of the 4G BTS carried out by Lintasarta with the consortium can be completed as planned.
“We believe that the support of the government, all officials and officials will continue to be given to us in the implementation of this project until it is completed later,” he concluded.
