SEA-­‐US consortium announces commercial operations of $250M state-­of-the-­art undersea cable system

The seven-­member Southeast Asia – United States (SEA-­US) cable consortium announced that the full commercial operations of the USD250-­million submarine fiber cable system that directly links Asia to the US for faster data transmission, more efficient connectivity and greater network resiliency, has officially been achieved on August 8, 2017.

With the recent completion of the Philippine and Indonesia portion, the cable system can now provide additional capacity for the exponential growth of bandwidth between the two continents as well as bypass congested, earthquake-­prone areas to ensure business continuity even during disasters.

“We are happy that the final leg of the SEA-­US cable strategically terminating in Davao, is already done.
We are proud to be part of this landmark undertaking because of the immense benefits that it brings to the country and the rest of the Southeast Asian region. The facility will not only ease our dependence on the two international cable systems routed through Northern Philippines but will also provide support for the expanding business requirement for data in Southern Philippines and the country as a whole,” said Ernest L. Cu, President and CEO of Globe Telecom, one of the consortium members. Globe commercially launched the SEA-­US cable system on August 11—three days after the cable consortium declared SEA-­US ready for commercial operations.

The SEA-­US undersea cable system delivers a 20 Terabit per second capacity with state-­of-­the-­ art 100 Gigabit per second technology. It provides the fastest direct access between the U.S., Philippines and Indonesia, extending nearly 9,000 miles on a route that bypasses congested, earthquake-­prone regions. The SEA-­US system includes expansive and redundant terrestrial networks connecting cable stations and data centers in California, Guam and Hawaiʻi, Indonesia, and as important, Philippines.

As one of the world’s top vendors of submarine cable systems, Mr. Toru Kawauchi, General Manager of NEC’s Submarine Network Division said, “It is with deep pride that NEC hands over the key to launch SEA-­US to the SEA-­US consortium members. From the day we signed the contract, we have dedicated our best resources to completing this cable. There are plenty of obstacles for every cable we build, and SEA-­US was not immune from this. However, together with the cable owners, we overcame each obstacle, and have come to this day. We look forward to many more years of further enhancing our relationship in order to answer the global demand for connectivity.”

The SEA-­US cable system was built by a consortium of 7 international telecommunication companies, that include Globe Telecom, PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia International (Telin), Telkom USA, GTI Corporation (a member of the Globe Group of companies), RAM Telecom International (RTI), Teleguam Holdings (GTA) and Hawaiian Telcom (HTEL). It links five countries and territories that include Manado (Indonesia), Davao (Philippines), Piti (Guam), Oahu (Hawaii, United States) and Los Angeles (California, United States).

Indonesia: Telkom sets aside $2b for capex, eyes 10 potential M&A deals

State-owned telco firm Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) (https://www.dealstreetasia.com/?s=telkom) is setting aside up to $2 billion, or about 25 per cent of last year’s revenue, for capital expenditure this year, finance director Harry M Zen revealed. The company is also learnt to be reviewing 10 potential merger and acquisitions involving fintech, e-commerce, and ICT startups.

“We are currently reviewing our business expansion plans for the future. What we can do, we’ll do it ourselves. What we can’t do, we’ll acquire,”

he told reporters in Jakarta, adding that the company is looking at both foreign and local firms for acquisitions.
Telkom raked in $8.7 billion in revenues last year.
The publicly-listed company has repeatedly said that it wants to boost expansion, particularly in the digital space, whether through collaboration or acquisition. It set up a VC firm, MDI Ventures (https://www.dealstreetasia.com/s=MDI+Ventures), in 2014 to make this vision a reality. It has committed $100 million for the VC to invest into global and domestic startups within the span of four years. MDI Ventures’ most recent investment was a pre-Series A round that it led (https://www.dealstreetasia.com/stories/indonesia-mdi-ventures-kofera-74914/) in June into Kofera, a marketing SaaS firm.

Agus Winarno, Telkom’s operation vice president for consumer assurance, said that the company sees its future depend on the digital space as it grows and expands. The company continues to explore deals in this area with many startups.

PT Telkom collocates satellite with Intelsat while planning two HTS satellites

Telkom-2-Orbital-879x485

WASHINGTON and JAKARTA, Indonesia — In the midst of a continuing fleet expansion, Indonesia’s state-owned telecommunications company PT Telkom is collocating one of its satellites with an Intelsat satellite over the Asia-Pacific region.

Speaking at the APSAT 2017 conference in Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta on May 17, PT Telkom’s Chief Strategy Officer David Bangun said the company is in the early stages of developing two high throughput satellites (HTS) for its constellation, which currently consists of three satellites: Telkom-1, Telkom-2 and Telkom-3S.

Intelsat and PT Telkom, in a joint statement released May 21, said that PT Telkom has moved the 12-year old Telkom-2 C-band satellite to the same orbital slot as Intelsat-5, a 20-year-old C-band satellite at 157 degrees east. The companies said that the move “allows Telkom to efficiently manage its satellite fleet while expanding its use of Intelsat services to complement PT Telkom’s network.”

“Our collaboration with Telkom demonstrates the value we place on working with other satellite operators to optimize the potential of our services in the region,” Intelsat’s vice president of business development Jay Yass, said in a prepared statement. “As our Intelsat EpicNG high throughput satellites are introduced to the Asia region, with Intelsat 33e currently in service and Horizons 3e late next year, collaborations such as this are essential to bringing the best solutions to the region.”

The move signals a positioning by both operators to prepare new services in a region where HTS is exploding in popularity. Last week China Satcom and Indonesian operator Pasifik Satelit Nusantara both announced plans for new high throughput satellites for the Asia-Pacific. Additionally, Paris-based Eutelsat has a high-throughput Ku-band payload on Eutelsat-172b, a triple-payload satellite that also carries traditional C- and Ku-band capacity, launching next week on an Arianespace Ariane 5.

Bangun said that PT Telkom expects all three of its satellites, including the 42-transponder Telkom-3S satellite launched in February, will be “fully occupied in a short time,” and that more satellites are on the drawing board.

“Telkom currently is planning to have at least two HTS satellites in near future,” he said, adding that both satellites are “still in early phase of planning.”

PT Telkom has one satellite under construction today with Space Systems Loral, designated Telkom-4, which will be for fixed satellite services.

Cell phone users specifically are driving the need for HTS capacity, Bangun said. PT Telkom has an estimated 170 million mobile subscribers that are increasingly seeking bandwidth-intensive services.

“Mobile services will be the most optimum solution to deliver broadband services in Indonesia, and backhaul solutions will be the ‘killer application’ for HTS satellites in Indonesia,” he said.

PT Telkom and Intelsat hinted at future collaborative plans by saying they “will also analyze the potential to expand services at 157° East.” This could take the form of a condosat arrangement, where the operators agree to put distinct payloads on a shared satellite platform in space. In February 2015, Intelsat and Azerbaijan’s national satellite operator Azercosmos ordered a condosat from Space Systems Loral to build Intelsat-38 and Azerspace-2 on the same spacecraft bus.

Intelsat also has an Asia-Pacific HTS satellite, Horizons 3e, that the company ordered from Boeing in November 2015. The satellite, to be operated by a joint venture with Japan-based Sky Perfect Jsat, is to complete Intelsat’s global coverage with its EpicNG-branded HTS capacity.

Dianne VanBeber, Intelsat’s vice president of investor relations and corporate communications, told SpaceNews May 22 that PT Telkom has been a customer of Intelsat since the operator became a commercial entity in 2001, and was a signatory on the creation of Intelsat back in 1964. She said Intelsat 5, manufactured by Hughes and launched in 1997, is expected to continue operating in an inclined orbit until at least 2020. Intelsat has no intention of trying to own Telkom-2, she added.

Bangun estimated that PT Telkom’s current fleet serves less than 10 percent the actual demand for bandwidth in Indonesia. Better transmission technologies will cause today’s latent demand to “increase exponentially,” he said.

Costs for satellite infrastructure, including that needed for cellular backhaul, need to come down as well, he said. Bangun said PT Telkom views fiber as its priority, and conducts 90 percent of the cellular backhaul within Indonesia’s urban areas using terrestrial infrastructure. Installing base transceiver sites (BTS) needed for satellite backhaul costs 50 percent more than fiber, he estimated.

Bangun said Indonesia’s obsession with smartphones has created demand that is stable enough that PT Telkom can use it as a metric for future business plans. That includes trying to figure out a price point for direct-to-home broadband internet — a service commonly cited as having high potential for HTS, but with few successful examples beyond Hughes, ViaSat and Eutelsat.

“Indonesian people, they’re willing to pay for smartphones — that’s why smartphone penetration is like 60 percent in Indonesia,” he said. “They are willing to pay for smartphones, but for the recurring billing, they limit themselves to $5, or $10. So if we deliver gigabits to homes, could the business plan be feasible with $10?”

Telekomunikasi Indonesia Delivers 14% Sales Growth In 2016

Indonesian communications giant Telekomunikasi Indonesia (NYSE:TLK) reported fourth-quarter results Tuesday morning. The company enjoyed strong growth in broadband subscriptions and business data sales.

Here’s a closer look at Telkom Indonesia’s fourth quarter, followed by a discussion of the full fiscal year.

Telkom Indonesia’s results: The raw numbers

Metric Q4 2016 Q4 2015 Year-Over-Year Change
Revenue $1.03 billion $780 million 33%
Net income from continuing operations $233 million $338 million (31%)
Unadjusted earnings per ADS (diluted) $0.29 $0.48 (40%)

DATA SOURCE: TELEKOMUNIKASI INDONESIA, CONVERTED TO AVERAGE INDONESIAN RUPEE/US DOLLAR EXCHANGE RATES FOR EACH QUARTER. 1 AMERICAN DEPOSITARY SHARE = 100 SERIES B SHARES ON THE INDONESIA STOCK EXCHANGE.

What happened with Telkom Indonesia this quarter?

The company is not fond of breaking down its reports into quarterly details. Press materials, financial filings, and management’s conference call with analysts all focused on figures and trends seen across the whole fiscal year 2016.

  • From the full-year perspective, Telkom Indonesia hit a home run. Sales jumped 14% year over year, lifting the bottom line 13% higher and increasing earnings per ADS by 24%. Free cash flows rose by 19%.
  • The Telkomsel mobile network saw full-year sales increasing 14%, driving large boosts to EBITDA profits and bottom-line income for that segment. Within Telkomsel, digital services and data sales increased by more than 50% each. These operations accounted for 37% of Telkom Indonesia’s total revenues in 2016, up from 33% in the 2015 fiscal year.
  • Telkomsel added 21 million new customers in 2016, driving the service’s subscriber count up to 174 million.

As usual, Telkom Indonesia’s management painted its forecast for the next full year in broad strokes:

  • Thanks to stable competition in the mobile space and expanding broadband markets, the company should deliver revenue growth ahead of the local market’s overall growth rates. The industry is expected to increase sales by roughly 9% in 2017.
  • EBITDA and net profit margins should decline slightly as the company leans further into the digital services market. Margins are generally leaner in that sector than in legacy voice services, putting pressure on the bottom line while dramatically expanding the top line.
  • About 24% of incoming revenues are budgeted for capital expenses, mostly poured into investments in the mobile and fixed broadband infrastructures. That’s up from 23% in 2016 but below the 26% mark that was set in 2015.

 

What management had to say

Telkom Indonesia CEO Alex Sinaga called this “a remarkable set of results.” In particular, the company hit a rare triple of double-digit growth in annual sales, EBITDA, and net income. The last time Telkom Indonesia hit this trifecta was in 2007.

Looking ahead

The next few years will be capital-intensive as Telkom Indonesia continues to make large investments into its infrastructure. The company is laying broadband fiber connections to California and France, opening a large data center in Singapore, and launching a high-capacity communications satellite to provide broadband services and high-definition TV signals across Indonesia. One satellite was launched in February, and an even larger one will follow in 2018.

This is an ambitious company, serving the world’s fourth-largest market while also thinking hard about international expansion.

SEA-US Cable System Secures FCC License – Cable is Targeted for Completion in 2Q 2017

HONOLULU, Hawaii – January 15, 2017 – Today the Southeast Asia – U S (SEA-US) Cable System publicly marked key milestones and closed in on others with the completion of the installation of its state-of-theart undersea fiber optic cable network by the second quarter of 2017. Last week, the Hermosa Beach, California shore-end was successfully connected. On January 12, 2017, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted the SEA-US cable landing license. By the end of January 2017 the construction of California’s cable landing station will be completed. In February 2017 the installation vessel will arrive in Honolulu, Hawaii, after completing its main-lay construction between California and Hawaii.

Essential to the SEA-US Cable System’s reliability is the location and protection of mission-critical equipment on land. The SEA-US consortium members chose CoreSite (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions across the United States, to house the SEA-US Cable System’s submarine line terminating equipment (SLTE) at CoreSite’s purposebuilt LA2 data center in downtown Los Angeles, California. The SEA-US Cable System’s unique design provides its users with additional protection between the Hermosa Beach, California landing and CoreSite’s LA2 data center over physically diverse dark fiber pairs.

The historic US $250 million SEA-US Cable System is being constructed by NEC Corporation. When completed, the system will deliver an initial design capacity of 20 Terabit per second (Tb/s) capacity, using NEC’s state-of-the-art 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) technology. This capacity will help to meet the exponentially growing demand for bandwidth between Asia and North America, while also enabling onward connectivity to existing and planned submarine cable systems.

The SEA-US Cable System investors consist of the following consortium members: Globe Telecom (Manila, Philippines), GTA (Tamuning, Guam), GTI (Los Angeles, California), Hawaiian Telcom (Honolulu, Hawaii), RTI (San Francisco, California), Telin (Jakarta, Indonesia) and Telkom USA (Los Angeles, California). More details can be found below.

Telkom launches world-class data center in Singapore

PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, through its subsidiary Telin Singapore, has officially launched state-of-the-art data center Telin-3 in the center of Singapore’s “Silicon Valley”, the Jurong Data Center Park.

The five-story, 20,000-square-meter facility is designed as a premium data center, which is the first and the only one in Singapore to receive Tier-IV design certification from the Uptime Institute.

Tier-IV is the highest standard of critical data center service in terms of security and reliability, enabling it to meet the stringent risks, safety and data security guidelines required by various industry, especially finance and banking.

“Telin-3 is designated to absorb the rising demand for a data center in the region. Our existing data centers, Telin-1 and Telin-2 in Changi, Singapore, have been overwhelmed due to high demand,” said Telkom’s vice president for corporate communication, Arif Prabowo, in Singapore, adding that construction began on the center in June last year.

Telin Singapore’s CEO, Septika N. Widyasrini, said Telin-3 would also run as a carrier neutral data center in which Telkom group submarine cable systems were seamlessly connected via Telin Singapore’s domestic fiber network.

“This well-connected network infrastructure will position Telin-3 as a telecommunications hub as well as a gateway to Indonesia and the rest of the world,” she explained.
