THE increasing demand for high-quality Internet connections requires the availability and development of technology along with ever-growing infrastructure.
Biznet focuses on telecommunications and multimedia in Indonesia. The company also owns and operates a fibre optic network and data centre.
Biznet has been committed to building modern infrastructure to reduce Indonesia’s digital gap with other developing countries since it was founded in 2000.
“According to data released by The Indonesian Internet Providers Association (APJII), until 2016, there were approximately 132.7 million people in Indonesia connected to Internet. This huge and growing number is an opportunity for us as an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to answer people’s demand,” said Biznet Networks president director Adi Kusma.
In 2017, Biznet built a 2,000-kilometre long fibre optic route with total of 20,000 kilometres of cable which covers more than 100 cities in Java, Bali, Sumatera and the Batam Islands.
“We aim to expand the cable length to 25,000 kilometres this year and we have invested US$100 million for this,” Biznet brand manager Gitanissa Laprina explains at a media briefing.
Biznet currently offers two types of Internet services, for homes or individuals and for businesses and SMBs. The services are affordable and come in several service packages to fulfil different needs.
Biznet has a joint venture with Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ) to provide the Biznet GIO Cloud service that offers cloud computing services to help Indonesian companies grow efficiently and effectively.
It is also the first cloud computing company in Indonesia to have been certified with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which is the standard certification on information security for institutions that run businesses involving credit card transactions.
“We are very delighted to achieve this certification. This means that we are now an acknowledged and trusted company to provide secure facilities for customers’ data.
Furthermore, our cloud computing services are open to a wide range of sectors, especially financial technology companies that require secure and trusted services.
“We hope this certification will be the motivation and commitment for us to continue improving our service quality,” said Biznet GIO Cloud chief executive officer Dondy Bappedyanto.
Biznet GIO Cloud began life two years ago as a B2B company targeting upper-middle class enterprises with plans to reach out to the SME market this year.
