NeutraDC, a company, partly owned by the I Squared Capital-backed BDx Indonesia, and Indonesian companies Indosat, and Lintasarta, is to build an interconnected Internet Exchange (IX) ecosystem in Indonesia.

NeutraDC is the conduit for Telkom Indonesia and Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison’s joint effort to fortify Indonesia’s digital infrastructure via the IX ecosystem.

“The joint forces will enhance capabilities and colocation capacities, ensuring the interconnected IX ecosystem provides end-users with the flexibility of consuming multiple services over a single port and deploy a distributed security architecture,” the partners said in a joint statement.

NeutraDC and BDx Indonesia will host multiple, independent IXs, providing mutual assistance and technical support to create a robust interconnected IX ecosystem, enhancing the resilience of the Internet infrastructure and creating a more streamlined and efficient national internet framework.

Mayank Srivastava, CEO of BDx, said: “This collaboration is a very big step towards creating the most interconnected Digital Infrastructure Mesh for Indonesia – a vision shared by both BDx Indonesia and NeutraDC.”

Ririek Adriansyah, president director of Telkom Indonesia, the new project would significantly enhance the quality of internet services. “Through strategic collaboration and leveraging our group assets, we aim to set new standards.” 

Vikram Sinha, president director and CEO of Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison, said: “In partnering with BDx Indonesia, this transformative collaboration is poised to significantly fortify Indonesia’s internet network infrastructure and expedite inclusive digitalisation across the nation.”

Andreuw Th A F, CEO of NeutraDC, said the strategic alliance would become a catalyst for unleashing the “boundless” potential of Indonesia’s digital economy”.
