ISPs in PNG to expand facilities to cater for internet user demands

Admin | 9:32:00 PM |
INTERNET service providers in PNG are set to expand and upgrade their facilities to compatible international levels to cater for increasing user demands. Most have now been tutored and trained successfully to upgrade the current internet protocol version 4 (IPv4) platform to IPv6 which is the most upmarket technology. A three day workshop facilitated by the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) and supported by the National Information and Communication Technology Authority (NICTA) which just concluded, saw 40 participants from all service providers undergo training on facilities upgrading. They included Telikom, Digicel, Digitec, NICTA, Datec and individuals. The IPv6 technology is scaled onto a bigger network, unlike the IPv4 which had serious limitation issues.

 APNIC training and technical assistance manager Nurul Islam Roman said internet was changing rapidly around the world, therefore service providers should be better equipped with knowledge and understanding on improving technologies to make it cost and traffic management effective. Mr Roman said daily increasing internet usage posed a big challenge in the industry on how it can provide a much bigger platform. He said APNIC was a solutions entity for such challenges because they had the internet architecture to provide the technology. “In our training, what we try to focus on is the technology training, so we try to focus on the right and appropriate technology suitable for different countries, and we also open up different best practices done by different successful countries and we also expect the participants to select the right technology that is suitable for their country. “Also through the workshop we try to involve the people and engage them in solving the problem by themselves. 

This is how they will have a better understanding on how they can operate effectively, and I think those are the main benefits the people of PNG can get after the workshop,” he said. He said the two main key areas of infrastructure in terms of ICT development – IPv4 and IPv6 – were introduced to participants. He added there would now be a technological migration from the IPv4 to IPv6. “So this workshop is to specifically train our participants on the IPv6 technology and of course at the same time there’s a deadline for people to migrate, and so we are hoping that after our participants go through the workshop, those service providers who have not upgraded their network to IPv6 should be able to do that. “And this provides for much bigger capacity in terms of the internet usage,” he said. He said IPv6 is the future internet protocol that will give the standard procedure, especially for smart internet usage.

Only 10 million SIM Cards approved for Mobile Phone Companies in PNG

Admin | 1:54:00 AM |

Papua New Guinea's National Information and Communication Technology Authority (NICTA) says it has only approved the release of a total 10 million subscriber identity module (SIM) and not 20 million. There were reports which had been put to the regulator that it had approved a further 10 million new SIM cards, bringing the total on the PNG market to 20 million. The regulator said this to be incorrect. 

“NICTA has so far issued 10 million numbers, which equates to one number - one SIM card. “Digicel have been issued 6 million numbers for their eight-digit mobile numbers in the 70xxxxxx, 71xxxxxx, 72xxxxxx, 73xxxxxx, 74xxxxxx and 79xxxxxx ranges while bmobile two million numbers in 75xxxxxx and 76xxxxxx; and Telikom PNG-two million in the numbers 77xxxxxx and 78xxxxxx respectively,” the NICTA spokesperson said. “As you will be aware, under the current SIM card registration exercise, each of the three operators is required to provide regular 30-days update on progress they are making in registering their SIM card users.

 “The operators/SIM card users have until January 1, 2019 to register SIM cards in use,” the spokesperson added. On the issue of the gazettal of the cybercrime legislation, the spokesperson said NICTA is hopeful that the final certification and gazettal will be done in the coming weeks. “The training of law enforcement officers will follow once certification, gazettal is done and importantly, necessary funding is provided by the government,” he added.

Only 10 percent of Papua New Guineans on Internet

Admin | 8:34:00 PM |
Only 10 per cent of Papua New Guineans have excess to internet as it is one of the most expensive in the world.

National Information and Communication Technology Authority (NICTA) CEO, Charles Punaha said the internet penetration rate is very low compared to other countries in the region, and the world.

He said comparing Fiji, which has close to 100 per cent internet penetration, the biggest nation in the Pacific only has 10 per cent of its population accessing internet, but are paying much more for the service.

Punaha said the high cost of doing business in the country and also the geography landscape dictates the cost of accessing the services.  

 “We must be mindful that the cost of rolling out infrastructure network in PNG is very expensive.

“We also have very isolated communities, for connectivity purposes also contribute to the high cost of rolling out ICT services in PNG.

“And also compounded by the fact that the power grid ends at the fringes of the main towns, so you have operators basically putting up their own generators, providing fuel and solar power, this is very expensive compared to Fiji with small lower islands and the population is evenly distributed,” Punaha said.

He said competition in the ICT market is the way forward to slice the cost of accessing internet.

Meanwhile, in a study carried out by Network Strategies of New Zealand on internet access affordability published on its website in 2016, stated that Papua New Guinea tops the list of 12 Pacific countries with the most expensive internet service, followed by Solomon Islands.  Source: LooPPNG

ABS offers a complete range of End-to-End solutions including Direct to Home (DTH), Cable TV distribution (CATV), Cellular Backhaul, VSAT and Internet Backbone services with diverse IP transit through its European, Middle East and Asian internet gateways.

Punaha said one of the requirements was for ABS to incorporate a company in PNG to provide Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services, which the company had complied with.

“ABS has been one of our clients for the last 10 year, and we do filing for them, and also they assist us to do coordination.

“Most satellites are in the PNG filings, except one of them.  

“And to this respect, ABS is not a newcomer to NICTA but to this occasion they have decided to open up a local office and submitted their application for licenses, which we will official handover to them three licenses approved by our board,” Punaha said.  

The three licenses are;

-              Individual Network (facilities and services) license to provide data and internet services over facilities and infrastructures for its customers in PNG;

-              Individual Network Gateway License (Gateway) license to provide international connectivity services for international voice and data connectivity; and

-              Individual Application License to provide internet services (voice and data) in PNG.

Gabriel Pimentel, ABS managing director thanked NICTA for the trust and confidence in the company and said they will kick the ground running with the licenses.

 “We believe PNG is sitting on wealth and needs to be developed on better communication, not only in the developed areas but also in rural areas. “ LoopPNG/ PNG Technology News

“According to our headquarters in China, the project will start deployment in the second quarter of this year,” he said.

Huawei and PNG DataCo Limited, a telecommunication carrier established by the Government, will build the 5,457km cable network in 14 coastal centres. This will meet the increasing demand for internet connectivity.

DataCo managing director Paul Komboi said new system was very important to PNG as it not only include a new submarine cable network but also provide internet gateways and data centres.
“This will improve the whole information communication technology infrastructure in the country and greatly increase network coverage, capacity and the availability of internet and broadband services to end users,” he said.

Komboi said DataCo was proud to contribute to the national broadband plan.
“Our selection of the experienced team at Huawei Marine, following a tender process, will ensure a successful implementation and delivery of this system,” he said.
Huawei Marine chief executive officer Mike Constable said for island nations, the submarine cable systems were required for the development of an affordable and effective ICT infrastructure.
“We are proud to be partnering with DataCo to improve and expand telecommunication access in support of PNG’s social and economic development,” he said.

The designed capacity of the system is 8 terabits per second, which will cater for an increased bandwidth demand in the next 10 to 15 years.
When completed, the network will cover 55 per cent of the population and will provide more than 70 per cent of PNG’s domestic bandwidth requirements. The National
