ITS Campus, ITS News – The development of information and communication technology is getting faster, the presence of 5G technology brings new news to the telecommunications world, including in Indonesia. To provide this 5G experience, in the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) campus area, a 5G Experience Center will be built from the collaboration between ITS, Nokia, and Indosat Ooredoo.

The online discussion held last Friday (2/7), together with ITS Rector Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng and other ITS high ranking officials, Danabalan and Ninin Kristanti from Nokia Indonesia, reported the readiness to build a 5G Experience Center at ITS and other following programs in the ICT Area – ITS Robotics.

Dr. Ir Endroyono DEA, Manager of ICT – ITS Robotics as well as Person in Charge (PIC) of the 5G Experience Center development program at ITS, said that this program could run because both parties (ITS – Nokia) have agreed to strengthen the contribution of ITS and Nokia in 5G technological fields. “This program includes the development of talent or HR (human resources) to the downstream of ICT innovation products which will become the core of 4.0 industry through 5G technology,” he added.

In the discussion, Danabalan said, this program will consist of two major themes. The first is the construction of the 5G Experience Center at ITS. “That is a center that allows students and millennials to learn the potential of 5G holistically or thoroughly, from applications, access technology to BTS radio technology,” said the man who is often called Dana.

The second program, continued Dana, is that Indosat and Nokia will start a 5G implementation program in Surabaya through the Shining Surabaya program. “With the Shining Surabaya program, it is hoped that 5G can be implemented in Surabaya starting from ITS, Indosat Ooredoo Gallery, Surabaya City Hall, the Finnish Consulate in Surabaya, to shopping centers and airports,” he said.

Meanwhile, Endroyono again said that to carry out the two programs, some devices, especially radios (mmWave 5G, FSMF, FXED & AirScale), Core, and Transport devices, have also been installed in the Center of Knowledge room. “In this space, students will be able to touch, learn, and gain insight to develop applications in the 5G era and to welcome the Industrial Revolution 4.0 era,” he said.

Furthermore, this ITS Electrical Engineering Department lecturer said that renovations are currently ongoing to beautify the Center of Experience room, which is the space provided to discuss and bring together academics and industry through the incubation process of applying 5G technology which includes the economic aspects of its use. “The Center of Excellence room is also being renovated. Various training and certifications are carried out in this room, especially those related to ICT and 5G,” added Endroyono.

The talk also discussed preparations for launching the 5G Experience Center at ITS, which will be placed in the Main Hall of the ITS Robotics Area. The launch was attempted to sync with the momentum of ITS 61st Anniversary by displaying various application demonstrations from communication applications, Internet of Things (IoT) applications, industrial applications to virtual reality (VR) and their applications.

At the end of the discussion, the ITS Rector,  familiarly called Ashari, expressed his appreciation for the initiative from Nokia and Indosat to build a 5G Experience Center at ITS. The professor of Electrical Engineering hopes that everything that is programmed will run very well. (nadh/ITS Public Relations)
