Viettel prepared for its 5G deployment by tapping telecoms solutions firm Infinera to modernise its network for a pilot test.
In a statement, Infinera detailed that Viettel will be using its Optical Timing Channel 2.0 (OTC2.0 ) solution to prepare its synchronization network for Viettel’s 5G pilot rollout.
The solution is standalone synchronisation technology that can be deployed virtually on all dense wavelength-division multiplexing networks and meets the performance demands of 5G applications.
Infinera noted, that improving synchronization distribution performance is critical for operators to provide boosted network performance and customer experience.
Dao Xuan Tung, Viettel project leader of research and implementation of time/phase synchronization system for 5G Network said: “Resilient and accurate synchronization performance enables us to fully utilize our most valuable asset, our spectrum. Infinera’s OTC2.0 solution will enable us to deploy a comprehensive 5G network and deliver superior solutions to our customers.”
“Synchronization requirements have become more stringent and more important for mobile operators like Viettel as they modernize their networks for 5G transport,” added Nick Walden, Infinera SVP of worldwide sales.
“Infinera’s synchronization capabilities enable both mobile network operators and wholesale carriers to deliver network-based synchronization with industry-leading high performance and resiliency.”
