Eversince the COVID-19 health crisis, most of Indonesia’s workforce and students have gotten used to a more digitised behavior and mindset of staying indoors.

Telecommunication platforms and equipment became increasingly important for business organizations, schools, government agencies, gig workers and even those who simply needed to connect to their circle of family and friends. While at first it seemed that the set up was temporary, the persistent threats of the emerging COVID-19 variants made telecommunication systems a permanent component in various environments.

What Telecommunication Systems Mean to Indonesians

Telecommunication systems refer to technology that permits two or more participants situated in different geographical locations to communicate and collaborate using audiovisual equipment and transmission facilities. As a system, it delivers information by way of images, voice and data.

As teleconferencing became part of the everyday scene not only in Indonesian offices but also in households, the country’s telecommunications device market grew rapidly.

Proof that Indonesia Has become a Leading Digital Economy on a Global Scale

In 2020, Spire Research and Consulting firm published a report detailing the results of its Technology Survey during the year. The survey report mentioned that video conferencing is one of most significant productivity technologies embraced largely by younger generations of Indonesians. According to the report, between 30 and 40 percent of Indonesians have their own video conferencing equipment.

The report also disclosed that even before the pandemic, Indonesians were already ranked as the third highest users of Google‘s video chat app Google Duo. Yet compared to US and India users who ranked first and second, calls placed by Indonesians were 10 percent longer than the length of average calls.

That is why it does not come as a surprise why Indonesia’s teleconferencing market has grown impressively and rapidly. On that note, it also doesn’t come as a surprise why becoming a distributor Cisco can depend on, presents lucrative business opportunities. After all, the country’s Internet Service Providers (ISPs), are already serving over 171 million Internet users.

Currently, Indonesia is recognized as the fastest growing and now the largest digital economies in Asia. Its digital economy had previously recorded a pre-pandemic value of US$ 40 billion, which swelled during the pandemic. The latest projection as reported by the Jakarta Globe is that Indonesia’s digital economy will reach a value of US$ 133 billion by year 2025.
