We are a leading integrated network infrastructure provider in Indonesia. Our principal business is leasing space for antennas and other equipment to Indonesian mobile telecommunication operators for wireless signal transmission at tower and microcell sites under long-term lease agreements. We also provide mobile telecommunications operators and other customers with access to capacity on our fiber optic backhaul network and our indoor DAS networks in shopping malls and office buildings in major urban areas.
As of December 31, 2017, the Company owned and operated 6,935 tower sites across Indonesia with a total of 6,895 towers comprising 6,333 macro towers and 562 microcell poles, with 11,774 tenancies, for a tenancy ratio of 1.71x. Besides, the Company also operated 2 shelter-only sites, 38 indoor DAS networks, and 2,847 km of fiber optic networks throughout Indonesia, including 1,574 km in the Greater Jakarta Region.
STP has two tower categories, Greenfield Towers and Rooftop Towers.
Greenfield Towers are standalone towers that require more space and are usually located in rural areas.
Rooftop Towers are towers that are located on rooftops of buildings and are usually used in more urban areas.
This widely used three-legged self-supporting tower has the ability to carry moderate to heavy accessory loads. Built with tubular legs without the use of supporting cables, this tubular design features improved strength-per-pound ratio. Engineered to meet your height requirements, this tower is appropriate for nearly all communication applications.Ground Base Towers
STP utilises decorative or camouflaged towers in the form of either a tree, water tank, minaret or a lamp post that is a more visually acceptable option in urban areas. Constructed of extremely durable materials our camouflaged towers are capable of withstanding the most severe conditions and any municipality wind load requirements while still providing cell coverage.Ground Base Towers
Our tower site portfolio also includes RTT which are typically used in urban areas where there is no available land space for installation of a GBT. RTT include both self-supporting towers and poles. Although self-supporting RTT are typically designed to accommodate three or more tenants; and the potential for additional co-locations on self-supporting RTT and poles is often limited by low weight bearing capacity as well as low height which reduces the effectiveness of signal transmission and coverage.
Is a mobile cell site that consists of a cellular antenna tower and electronic radio transceiver equipment on a truck or trailer, design to be a part cellular network. Mobile BTS, used to provide expanded cellular network coverage at special events such as major supporting events or in disaster area.
Since less land space is required for microcell sites, they are generally less capital intensive and require less time to construct compared to macrocell sites, although due to the more extensive infrastructure provided to tenants at microcell sites, lease fees for microcell sites are generally higher than lease fees for macrocell sites.Ground Base Towers
Indoor DAS networks are distributed antenna systems which are deployed for dedicated indoor coverage using multiple low gain indoor antennas distributed within the interior of a building. Mobile telecommunications operators employ indoor DAS networks in shopping malls, hotels, stadiums, office buildings, government building, airports, and any building that has high traffic usage. Our indoor DAS networks can serve multiple operators and may have from 100 to 1,000 antennas operating on either active or passive systems. Active DAS uses fiber repeater technology and is deployed in areas where large numbers of antennas are required. Passive DAS uses coaxial cable to connect a more limited number of antennas.
We generally enter into long term leasing agreements with the building management or owners (generally a term of 5 years) for our indoor DAS networks. Since a typical mobile subscriber spends the majority of time indoors, our indoor DAS networks provide important network coverage and capacity to our customers. We expect to increase our number of indoor DAS networks as mobile telecommunications operators’ requirements for capacity and coverage increase with the rollout of LTE.
