Indonesia Includes Early Warning System in its DVB-T2 Rollout

With the adoption of the DVB-T2 standard, the Indonesian regulator plans to incorporate an Early Warning System (EWS) as part of the DVB-T2 rollout. The Indonesian early warning system is designed to support up to 15 different types of disasters, three levels of warning and postcode-based regional EWS. EWS is the unique mandate from the Indonesian government, thus all STB and iDTV must be compliant with the EWS standard.

At the request of the Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT), Rohde and Schwarz and Balai Besar Pengujian Perangkat Telekomunikasi (BBPPT) have successfully installed a DVB-T2 receiver compliance test system in January 2016. The BBPPT test labs will be the official test labs responsible for DVB-T2 receiver (type approval) compliance testing in Indonesia. The overall test system consists of a BTC Broadcast Test Centre, AVBrun automation software, StreamSpark PSI/SI and early warning system (EWS) test suite, as well as a test lab management system.
