Rohill Announces Partnership for Indonesian Nationwide Security Network
Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | Comments

Rohill, PT Len Industri and PT Simoco Indonesia signed a cooperation agreement for local production of mission-critical communications systems in Indonesia. By sharing knowledge and resources, setting up a local production unit and a joint market approach, the parties aim to provide customers with a secure, cost-effective and future-proof solution.

The Indonesian government encourages local production and prefers local producers when it comes to public procurement. To date, Rohill produces communications systems in the Netherlands. The signed cooperation agreement responds to these needs and to the current problems concerning national security, in which the importance of an independent and secure national communications system is considered the highest priority by the government.

PT Len Industri, as a state-owned company, chose this cooperation to expand its portfolio with mission-critical communications solutions to ensure national safety and to guarantee full independence of foreign countries, political influences and shareholder-driven economics. The open interface of TETRA allows seamless national integration and standardization of both legacy networks and new technology platforms such as LTE. Beside this, the local production, distribution, installation, and first- and second-line support offer protection against cyber threats and avoidance of system backdoors. Also, with the local setup, delivering and maintaining the network can be guaranteed during the lifetime of the system.

As the world’s fourth-most populous country, consisting of more than 17,000 islands, Indonesia has an extensive demand and potential for mission-critical and secure communications. The possibility of a secure network that is a 100% Indonesian product fits perfectly with the intention of Indonesia to maintain full independence when it comes to national security communications.

Rohill has been active on the Indonesian market for more than 20 years, with the last 10 years together with local distributor PT Simoco, and has delivered several successful mission-critical communications projects in Indonesia. Rohill developed its own communications system entirely in-house using a technical development loan from the Dutch government.

“We are very pleased to partner with Rohill and PT Simoco Indonesia to develop a leading position in the Indonesian market for secure mission-critical communications,” said Linus Sijabat, director of operation, PT Len Industri. “The experience and technical knowledge of Rohill and PT Simoco Indonesia in mission-critical communications and the intention to start with local production are closely related to our goal — to guarantee national security and full independence.”
