The traffic migration process on the Telkom-2 Satellite has been successfully carried out and this indicates that the service period of Telkom-2 has been completed. In addition, Anggoro said that he would plan a De-Orbit process at the end of May 2021.

"After the migration is carried out, the Telkom-2 Satellite is ready to do De-Orbit. The De-Orbit process will be planned for the end of May 2021. Hopefully this process will run smoothly and successfully. " He said.

As we know, the Telkom-2 Satellite is a satellite managed by Telkomsat and was successfully launched using the Ariane 5 rocket, on November 17, 2005 in Kourou, Guyana, France.

The presence of the Telkom-2 Satellite is shown to support the backbone transmission communication system which includes long distance direct line (SLJJ) telecommunications services, international direct dial (IDD), internet, and communication networks for military. The Telkom-2 satellite has coverage covering Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
