IOH Show (THIS) First Episode Explores the Future of the 5G Metaverse with Meta


INDOSAT Ooredoo Hutchison presents THIS: The IOH Show, and for this first episode shares thoughts on Metaverse as the next big technology.

Carrying the theme ‘Pack Your Bags to Metaverse’, together with tech giant Meta, the company highlighted how Metaverse brings the best 5G use cases for digital telecommunications.

Metaverse promises the next generation of social interactions where the digital world looks realistic but not limited. Shaped by virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain, Metaverse focuses on establishing a presence in virtual universes to enhance the human experience.

Despite being at the beginning of its evolution, Metaverse is attracting large industry-wide investment globally and in Indonesia, with potential revenue opportunities, according to Bloomberg, to reach US$800 billion by 2024.

IOH Chief Enterprise Data Analytics Officer Chirag Sukhadia said, “Metaverse, which takes us to the next phase of the internet, has grown rapidly in recent years and has accelerated since the pandemic. This provides a huge opportunity for digital telcos to become entry points thanks to the advanced connectivity and lower latency offered by 5G technology. We are excited to play an important role moving forward with our large ecosystem, customer base, and extensive collaboration with giant tech partners, including Meta.”

Chirag believes the key to the future of Metaverse is a thriving ecosystem, driven by three fundamentals: presence, interoperability and customer adoption.

The first is the presence of affordable VR/AR technology devices, such as headsets. The second is interoperability, which means the ability to move seamlessly between virtual spaces while maintaining the same virtual assets; thus, technology standardization becomes important. The last one is massive customer adoption across all segments, not just the younger generation.

According to Chirag, IOH played an important role in shaping the ecosystem with its two flagship products, IM3 and 3, which have a large customer base across all segments.

In addition, the company’s strengthened collaboration with global strategic partners, including Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, and Nokia, enables interoperability. Moreover, the company’s strong commitment to providing 5G commercial services, which was launched last year in Solo, Jakarta, Surabaya, Makassar, and Balikpapan.

The company also plans to integrate its network across Indonesia to increase its in-room coverage and network capacity to enhance customer experience.

Donald Trump’s Social Media Will Be Coming to the End of May 2022


The social media app Truth, created by one of Donald Trump’s subsidiaries, is promised to be available to web users by the end of May 2022.

The news was delivered directly by CEO Truth Devin Nunes via the social media platform Truth.

“At the end of May we will launch this PWA (Web Browser) which will allow access from any device,” Nunes wrote.

In addition to preparing a version for the website, Devin Nunes said that the Android version is currently still in the process of receiving approval from Google as the party developing Android.

This means that if Google approves the existence of the Truth application on Android services, there is a high possibility that the number of social media users will increase rapidly.

Previously, Truth was available on the Apple App Store and was warmly welcomed by Donald Trump’s supporters.

The Truth Social company Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) was launched by Donald Trump with a mission to fight tech giants after Trump lost access to Twitter, Facebook and YouTube for allegedly inciting his supporters to violence during the January 6 US Capitol riots.

But social media’s efforts to thrive are now limited by its reliance on Google, which operates an app store with a strong dominance in the smartphone market.

The Truth app is currently only available in the United States, and since its launch on February 21, 2022, it has become the second most downloaded free app on the App Store service.

Trump began uploading on Truth on Thursday (28/4), and became his first upload on his own application after a long hiatus.

TMTG plans to go public through a merger with blank check company Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC).

The deal is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is likely to be finalized in a few months. (Ant/OL-12)
