FROM THE EDITOR
Dear Readers, in the last couple of days
there have been many events related
to the development of information and
communication technology in Indonesia.
There is Bank Rakyat Indonesia that has
officially obtained satellite orbit slot on
150.5 BT from the government, and has
also entered into a cooperating agreement
to develop a satellite and launch the same
in 2016.
There is also a new policy taken by
Indonesia Telecommunication Regulation
(BRTI) to reactivate prepaid card users
registration following the rampant use of
cellular telephone for crimes. Related to
crime, the new mode of internet based
crimes which end up on extortion has finally
been revealed. One of the victims is an
Indonesian who was exposed by extortion
caused by an acquaintanceship through
social network facebook.
In welcoming the Kartini day, a digital
female called Kartini Next Generation has
also been presented. Whoever is chosen
and why the government feels the need
to drive women to be active in using
information and communication technology,
all can be read in this Majalah ICT No.242014 edition.
Through this forum, we also intend to
invite readers to visit Indo ICT Expo which
will be held in Jakarta Convention Center
on 14-16 May. When visiting, do not forget
to stop by at our booth in A-306 to know
more about Majalah ICT.
In addition to have an exhibition, we also
will hold a Public Discussion titled “The
Strategy to Develop Local Content and
Application” at the same time and place
as the held Expo. For information on this
workshop, follow our Twitter account @
indoict. Readers’ presence and support on

history, in which
banking industry starts
to enter this sector. This
new phenomenon was
started by Bank Rakyat
Indonesia (BRI) which
officially took over Indosat
satellite orbit slot, and will
launch its own satellite in
2016.
President Susilo
Bambang Yudhoyono
(SBY) who was present at
the signing of agreement
of developing and
launching of satellite with
Systems/Local, LLC and
Arianespace at BRI office,
stated that he was very
proud in welcoming the
plan on developing and
launching of Bank Rakyat
Indonesia (BRI) satellite.
According to SBY, this
becomes the milestone
since BRI is the first Bank
which owns a satellite.
“This is a milestone, BRI
is the first bank in the
world that has its own
satellite which is very
useful in developing its
business,” said President
SBY. Therefore SBY
appreciates the array
of ministers and parties
related which facilitated
BRI step in creating its
plan operating its own
satellite. Previously, in
addition to obtaining
support from Ministry of
State Owned Enterprises,
BRI has also obtained

license for 150.5 East
Longitude from Ministry
of Communication
and Informatics
(Kemenkoinfo).
“I would like to
congratulate and express
my gratitude to BRI on
its initiative and hard
work in purchasing and
procuring satellite in order
to expand its business in
Indonesia,” said SBY.
BRI satellite is planned to
be named BRISat and will
orbit in 2016. The number
”
of transponders from such
satellite is 45 units with
coverage of Indonesia,
ASEAN, northeast of
Asia, parts of the Pacific
and West Australia. BRI
has prepared fund of
up to USD250 million
or approximately
IDR2.5 trillion for the
procurement of such
satellite.
The procurement
of satellite is for the
purpose of supporting the
information technology

networks. Efficiency
level is also expected to
be better compared to
renting satellite. President
Director of BRI Sofyan
Basir previously said
that such satellite was
targeted to orbit in 2016.
BRI also opens the
opportunity to Telco to
rent such satellite, the
main objective of such
satellite procurement is
efficiency. After owning
a satellite, BRI will only
pay communication
technology per year in the
amount of 30 percent of
the amount paid at this
time.
Concerning why BRI also
launched a satellite, and
as if it took other party’s
business, Sofyan affirmed
that the intention to
launch its own satellite
was the impact of
constraints in which
transponder providers
could not provide the
capacity to serve BRI up
to villages.

T
he plan of Bank
Rakyat Indonesia
in launching a
satellite, turned
out to be a source of
suspicion. Moreover,
the cooperation
agreement on procuring
and launching of the
satellite was conducted
at the end of President
Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono reign.
As conveyed by
Member of Commission
VI of the House of
Representatives (DPR),
Lili Asdjudiredja, Lili
opined that BRI was
under competent in
managing satellite
business. In addition,
she added, what had
been conducted by
BRI was done towards
the end of United
Indonesia Cabinet Part
II, therefore it triggered
political suspicion.
“DPR suspects there
is something behind
BRI purchasing satellite
action. The large
amount of money,
approximately USD250
million, can be a
financial scandal in the
future. A number of
financial scandals took
place when an important
policy was taken
towards the end of a
reign, just name Bank

Concerning the allegation on the purchase of satellite
by BRI, Dahlan saw this as non pros and cons
matters, instead it had been directed to a slander.
Supatikno from PDIP
fraction admitted that
he was surprised to hear
BRI’s plan to purchase a
satellite.
Such matter was caused
by the fact that satellite
business was not BRI
competence to handle.
“The main duty of BRI
is to save poor people,
those who are engaged in
real sectors, small-middle
enterprise units or fight
against loan sharks who
lend capital with large
interests. The plan to
purchase satellite is too
much compared to the
need of BRI,’ affirmed

No. 24• May 2014
Hendrawan.
Minister of State Owned
Enterprises Dahlan Iskan
answered the allegation
on the opinion in the
community and DPR on
BRI satellite purchase
which was considered
as scandalous since the
signing of the contract
was conducted prior to
the change of government
or presidential election.
According to Dahlan,
such decision was made
since now was the time to
decide.
“The conversation
was conducted 2 years
ago. Well if now is not
decided, in 5 years there
is no guarantee it will
be made,” Dahlan said.
He affirmed that the
satellite purchase by BRI
was needed to support
its operations. Dahlan
compared BRI with foreign
banks in neighboring
countries.
“China or India does
not need (satellite) since
they are on lands, all can
be overcome with optic
fiber. Different from us
with this large islands,” he
continued.
Concerning the
allegation on the purchase
of satellite by BRI, Dahlan
saw this as non pros and
cons matters, instead it
had been directed to a
slander.
“These are not pros
and cons, instead it is a
slander since pros and
HOT NEWS
cons do not go that way,”
he said.
Actually it is a common
matter if there is a
question in the public
concerning BRI that
intends to launch a
satellite.
This is caused by
the fact that BRI itself
has never explained
to public how can BRI
roadmap which is not
telecommunication player
develop and launch
a satellite with high
technology. The intended
roadmap is the plan on
placing earth station,
then human resources for
operational and satellite
maintenance.
BRI Satellite and Meeting at Minister of
Economy Law and Security
F
inally Bank Rakyat
Indonesia officially
obtained a blessing
from Ministry of
Communication and
Informatics for the
management of 150.5 BT
orbit slot, which means
it is allowed to own
a satellite. Previously
150.5 BT orbit slot was
controlled by Indosat.
The MoU has signed a
cooperation to launch the
satellite in 2016.
The takeover of
orbit from Indosat was
actually conducted in
August last year.
On the other hand,
Indosat seems to be
reluctant in releasing
such slot. As conveyed
by the President and CEO
of Indosat, Alexander
Rusli, Indosat still
questioned withdrawn
by the government.
When the answer had
not been provided, the
government had already
allocated such orbit to
BRI. According to Alex,
his side had met all the
requirements to relaunch the satellite on
150.5 BT slot. With this
decision, Indosat satellite
business is predicted to
fall since it can no longer
lease the same to a third
party.
In addition, he
added that BRI which
only had the special
telecommunication
license that could
hamper the cooperation
of both parties. “It is
impossible for us to
rent a transponder from
BRI if we only use the
special license,” he said.
Telecommunication
Special License is
provided by the
government to
communication providers
which use its network for
private use, not to be
leased to other parties.
From the circulated
documents, it was
discovered that there
was a meeting held at
Minister of Economy
Politics and Security
(Menko Polhukan) which
discussed the withdrawal
of satellite orbit slot.
In the meeting held on
August 26 it had been
decided that 150.5 BT
orbit slot allocated for
Indosat was taken over
by the government.
Further in September
2013, Menko Polhukam
sent a letter regarding
utilization of satellite
placing slot to President
Bambang Yudhoyono.
It was a rare event
since SBY has not
been too concerned
on the development of
Indonesia’s information
and communication
technological
development.

whose data are invalid.
“We all have agreed to
improve three matters,
namely trading, data
registration of users by
retailers/galleries that
have been authorized,
as well as registration
for those whose data
are invalid.” This was
conveyed by M. Ridwan
Effendi, a Member of BRTI,
to Majalah ICT.
Meanwhile Chairman of
BRTI Kalamullah Ramli
also affirmed that the
existing prime cards that
are purchased on the
streets could no longer be
done. “At this time prime
cards can be
purchased at public
galleries on the streets
and there are a lot of
them. The easiness
of obtaining new
numbers from new SIM
cards provides large
opportunities for criminal
actors to commit fraud
or any other criminal
actions,” he said.
A couple of days ago,
Ministry of Communication
and Informatics
also sent an official
letter to all President
Directors of Cellular
Telecommunication
providers and FWA. Such
letter number 30/BRTI/

Several operators
that were contacted by

main issue had been the

“Until today we have

validate them? Without

do since there is no

“The Government has
the data from e-KTP, we

validation whether such
data is correct should
be conducted by the
Government or BRTI.
“If we do the validation,
in addition to the absence
of official Indonesian
population, daily services
to users have already
been a huge work,” he
said.
On the other hand,
a telecommunication
observer who lives in
Bandung said that there
was a mafia of operators’
prime card and top up
voucher circulation.
“Nowadays large
operators are controlled
by 5 distributors, this is a
mafia. They just want to
sell, they don’t care about

Rosmaya explained that
electronic money use at
this time was regulated
under Bank Indonesia
Regulation (PBI) Number

to drive the increase of
security and efficiency of
electronic money,” she
said.
With regard to electronic
issuers, according
to Rosmaya at this
time there had been
17 electronic money
issuers which include 8
Public Banks, 1 Regional
Development Bank (BPD),
and 8 Other Than Bank
Instutitons (LSB).
“In total there are 17
electronic issuers, 8 Public
Banks, 1 BPD and 8 LSB,”
she explained.
According to Rosmaya
this new regulation was
also expected to be
able to cover the public,
particularly outside Java.
“BI will also regulate
electronic money
multiplication, we direct it
to Sumatra, Kalimantan,
Sulawesi, it must be

N
onot Harsono’s
name is familiar

industry. This was due to
the fact that in addition
to being a member of
Indonesia Regulation Board
(BRTI) for two periods,
Nonot is also a figure who
likes to hang out piercing
separators of institutions
and sciences. Thus this
man who was born on
April 4, 1965 is also
close with people outside
telecommunication
community.
Before becoming a
member of BRTI, Nonot
spent much of his time
educating students at
Surabaya State Electronic
Polytechnic (PENS).
His love for education
caused Nonot to stay for
more than 20 years as a
lecturer.
In educational world,
this man who once
learned how to become
a boxer when he was a
student was in various
positions. Just name
Major Chairman of PENS

then Director of General

campus he obtained
his masters degree in
Technique in 1999.
He also participated
in various trainings in
telecommunication field,
even on international
levels from Japan, the
Phillipines, South Korea,
Thailand up to Iran.
From Surabaya, Nonot
moved to Jakarta in 2009
since he was elected
to become a member
of BRTI for the perid of
2009-2012. Further he
was re-elected for the
second period in 2012
and will ended in 2015.
Nonot involvement
in telecommunication
world is also based on
his passion since he
was young to matters
related to electronic and
telecommunication.
His journey to
become a regulator
in telecommunication
industry , the industry
that is so strategic and
became a primadona
then was written
in a book entitled
“Telecommunication

business and regulation
challenges.”
According to Nonot this
book was not made at
once but he wrote it in
stages for several years.
“Chapter 1 to Chapter
5 were made in 2010.
Chapter 6 was made in

Nonot said.
Finally the book was
continued in 2012 and
2014, then in 2014 this
book was published. “This
book was written at each
weekend as a light writing
not a heavy one since its
objective was to share

is convergent in utilizing

said.
He emphasized that
his book was only a
light reading for anyone
who cares about
the untilization of

nation’s prosperity. It
is not the sophisticated
technology that can
create prosperity, but it
is the good governance
