Abstract—To achieve the Indonesian government’s target to provide high-speed Internet networks in all of Indonesia’s provinces, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology carried out the Palapa Ring program, which was divided into three packages. One of the three packages, the Eastern Package, is implemented in East Nusa Tenggara, an area whose implementation still lags behind. Therefore, this paper proposes an optical fiber backbone network in East Nusa Tenggara. This paper is an extended work of the existing East Palapa Ring backbone network. Sixteen land and underwater routes are proposed in this paper. Power link budget and rise-time analyses are performed to determine whether the proposed optical fiber network design can be implemented, and findings show that the proposed network does not exceed the power link and dispersion limitation of 53 dBm and 259.26 ps, respectively. Therefore, the proposed design of the optical fiber networks in East Nusa Tenggara meets requirements.
