Infrastructure in the new capital city of Indonesia will use advanced technology, said Head of the Human Resources Research and Development Agency of the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (Kominfo) Hary Budiarto.

“Of course, the infrastructure in the new capital will use the latest technology,” Budiarto said, during an online discussion entitled, “R&D and Innovation for Advanced Indonesia” here on Tuesday.

The new capital city of Indonesia will be moved to part of Penajam Paser Utara District and part of Kutai Kartanegara District in East Kalimantan Province.

The capital city would use fiber optics and satellites to become a technologically advanced capital, said Budiarto.

“We expect all systems in the new capital to use the most advanced technology systems, so that everything can be controlled using automatic technology,” he said.

The new capital city will be built into a smart city with integrated planning for all systems, such as transportation systems, education and work systems that will use electronic means.

“We prepare all infrastructure based on electronics,” he said.

Budiarto said the ministry plans to use the 5G cellular network in the new capital, as the network has a fairly wide bandwidth with very fast data transmission.

Kalimantan, which will be the location of the new national capital, still has many frequencies that can be used for the 5G cellular network, so there are no frequency constraints in the region.

In addition, a national data centre will also be built in the new capital city, so that all data will be integrated.
