Vietnamese telecommunications company Viettel and Qualcomm are planning to collaborate and develop a next-generation 5G radio unit with Mimo capabilities and distributed units.

The said collaboration, according to Viettel, will fast track the development and rollout of 5G network infrastructure services in Vietnam.

Using the Qualcomm X100 5G RAN accelerator card and massive Mimo Qualcomm QRU100 5G RAN platform combined with Viettel’s hardware and software systems will ramp the development of RAN massive Mimo solutions, simplify network deployment, and lower total cost of ownership.

Viettel says its telco infrastructure and Qualcomm’s low power application-specific integrated circuit for 5G solutions for device infrastructure products will advance cellular ecosystem and accelerate innovation.

“This collaboration between Qualcomm and Viettel will be the cornerstone of Vietnam’s national strategy for Made in Vietnam 5G infrastructure,” says Viettel High Technology general director Nguyen Vu Ha.

“This collaboration will demonstrate the scalability of Qualcomm’s horizontal platform for vertical integration in the ORAN infrastructure ecosystem. We are pleased to offer Modem-RF technology that supports the performance demands needed to bring rapid speeds and expanded use cases of 5G networks to consumers,” comments Qualcomm senior vice president and general manager cellular modems and infrastructure Durga Malladi.

“As the need for reliable, robust, and powerful mobile experiences increases across Vietnam, we anticipate a new wave of demand for 5G services from both end users and enterprises. Joining forces with Viettel will allow us to innovate through and launch technology that will advance the cellular ecosystem and accelerate the enablement and deployment of modern networks at scale,” concludes Qualcomm CDMA Asia Pacific president Taiwan and Southeast Asia ST Liew.
