Its reliable power grid, coupled with skilled personnel have proved to be overwhelmingly attractive against space scarcity concerns. On the other hand, the rising star to be is Indonesia. Data Centers in Jakarta alone are set to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.8% in the years 2019-2024 , the highest for any city in Southeast Asia (Cushman & Wakefield Datacenter Report 2019). Making it an attractive market to enter. Thailand’s cloud and data center market could be on the verge of greatness.

[ID] Panel Discussion: Preliminary Study of the Digital transformation on 5G and IoT in Indonesia
Mobile connectivity is a top of mind concern for countries trying to modernize, and the impact of 5G and IoT will extend well beyond telecommunications. IoT means the proliferation of connected devices across demographics and industries. And while the adoption of 5G technology has proven to be a critical facet of Indonesia’s growing digital economy, telcos have been reluctant in going all in, due to network ecosystem limitations and their prioritization of optimizing existing 4G networks. With connectivity spread unevenly across the archipelago, government agencies are seeking to build the 4G network out to remote villages before attempting to adopt new nationwide technologies. In this discussion, we discuss the challenges to rolling out 5G technologies in Indonesia and its potential impact?
