Vietnamese operator Hanoi Telecom Corporation has selected Infinera’s TM-Series for its metro network.
One of the leading wireless telecom operators in Vietnam, HTC will deploy Infinera’s solution to connect Ho Chi Minh City and Vung Tau, delivering multi-service transport services with low power, high density and scalability.
HTC provides carrier and wholesale services, focusing primarily on providing wireless, wireline Internet and VoIP services. The company offers its mobile services under Vietnamobile to more than 13 million wireless subscribers.
This is the first selection of Infinera’s TM-Series by an existing Infinera customer following the acquisition of Transmode, which closed on August 20, 2015. The Infinera TM-Series packet- optical platform provides multi-service capabilities including services such as Ethernet/CE2.0, MPLS-TP and OTN aggregation, which are well suited for mobile fronthaul and backhaul, and metro aggregation applications.
Infinera worked closely with partner Nissho Electronics Vietnam, an end-to-end network system integrator, to select the carrier-class solutions enabling HTC to rapidly respond to its customers' needs. Through Infinera’s partnership with Nissho Electronics Vietnam, HTC first deployed the Infinera DTN and ATN platforms in its network. The Infinera TM-Series solves HTC’s new requirement for an optimised 10G transport solution upgradeable to 100G, including 1+1 protection, high density, low power and space savings.
Trinh Minh Chau, Chairwoman & CEO at Hanoi Telecom Corporation, said: “The Infinera TM-Series will support our metro applications where high density, low power and bandwidth scalability are critical for providing innovative services to our end customers.”
