Several prediction methods currently help companies improve efficiency, one of which is the prediction of bandwidth allocation. This method is expected to support a telecommunications company in carrying out cost efficiency, especially the data transfer cost from each location. Currently, the problem with telecommunication companies is the lack of management of the amount of bandwidth required. Sometimes, there is a lack or excess of bandwidth allocation in each BTS, so that this problem can reduce the profits earned by the company. From these problems, we need a system that can regulate and predict future bandwidth requirements. So in this study, we explore the prediction of bandwidth needs by utilizing the data from monitoring the bandwidth of each cell in the form of time-series data. Researchers collect the data from November 2019 to January 2020; our first step is to simulate predictions using the ARIMA method. In this study, simulations using a combined method of ARIMA and LSTM RNN. After trying several ARIMA and LSTM models, the best models are ARIMA (0.0 .6) and LSTM (windows = 100, 2 Layer, 100 Neuron), where the RMSE results obtained are 387.693019. From the results of the model, the researcher conducted an experiment using the Hybrid ARIMA LTSM model. The findings of this study indicate that predictions within 50 hours indicate an accurate level of accuracy.
