    Background and objective: Over the past decade, Indonesian telecommunication market has enjoyed a steady growth by over than 30% per year. However, all of the cellphone and smartphone companies are foreign company and there is no local company. Therefore, this paper purports to analyze the current telecommunication industry development in Indonesia and how to elevate it for further enhancement.

    Materials and Methods: This article firstly reviewed the theory of triple helix model type of collaboration among university, industry, and government. Secondly, analyzed how to elevate it in order to foster Indonesian telecommunication industry. Finally, it gives some suggestions for further triple helix model implementation in Indonesia.

    Results: The steps to implement triple helix model of collaboration in Indonesia are (1) improving facilities and quality of the academic research, developing a collaboration that focuses on the applied science transfer, developing a product that is appropriate to the market needs, and (2) developing new hardware and software business spin-off. During the trilateral collaboration, evaluation is continuously based on some indicators, such as the number of patents, customer satisfaction with the products, and the number of new business units.

    Conclusions: The triple helix model of innovation has become salient in the development of Indonesian telecommunication industry. Readiness of Indonesia to implement knowledge-based economy development needs to be improved through human resource development, research facility enhancement, and by encouraging industry and governments’ participation in basic research and education.
