Huawei has trailed a 4K Ultra HD (UHD) television service with Telkom Indonesia to help accelerate broadband and video implementation in the Southeast Asian country.
HuaweiHuawei will provide technical solutions, video experience guarantee, video service operation and maintenance to develop Indonesia's 4K Ultra HD video services, the Chinese company announced at the 3rd Indonesia ICT Carnival.

“For 15 years of our presence in Indonesia, Huawei is very proud to be able to provide the most cutting edge innovation in the video industry, as well as contribute in preparing Indonesia to face the ultra-broadband era. We hope the Huawei's 4K Ultra HD video solution can be received well by the operators and will help them provide high quality video to its customers,” said Sheng Kai, CEO, Huawei Indonesia.

Indonesia ended 2015 with 93 million Internet users, representing 36.5% of the total population, he added. Of the country’s overall Internet user base, 81% go online to access video services.

In a statement, the Chinese ICT giant said it would contribute in the development of ITU-T H.265 video CODEC, and utilise advanced algorithms to optimise the video stream, encoding quality and latency. Huawei's IPTV and CDN platform will also provide a major enhancement to accelerate smart distribution and intelligent scheduling in order to ensure that the 4K Ultra HD services can be received well by customers.

Huawei will also collaborate with operators in developing the 4K smart set-top box to support 4K video services. Additionally, the company’s Video Big Data analytics technology is available to assist operators to identify video users, to accelerate video services development and support operators' digital transformation.

Operational consulting, network monitoring and service provisioning options are also available from Huawei for operators to optimise operational and maintenance efficiency, the company said.

With 85% of Internet data traffic predicted to be streamed video by 2020, consumers will gradually move towards an HD video experience and, because of this, Huawei claims “4K technology for TV and 2K video for mobile phone will soon become a reality”.
