It was part of a strategic agreement on Comprehensive R&D and the Development of 5G Telecom Network Infrastructure, Defence Products and Solutions for Indian and overseas markets, signed by Viettel High Technology Industries Corporation - Viettel Group’s subsidiary and India's United Telecoms Limited (UTL) last December in Hanoi.

Under the contract, the Vietnamese company will supply cell site and IP router for access, aggregation, 5G fronthaul and backhaul, broadband, data center, and others.

The IP transmission device supports 100bps speed that is able to meet the requirements of the 5G network owned by Viettel. 

Viettel is the first business to conduct research on IP Routers in Vietnam that meets the standards of the European Conformity and the US Federal Communications Commission. The device has been also certified by the Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications.

Raja Mohan Rao, Chairman of UTL, said that the company decided to collaborate with Viettel High Tech as a strategic partner to carry out R&D, manufacture and deploy 5G network infrastructure solutions in India, after a comprehensive assessment of R&D capability, large-scale deployment experience, and strategic vision.

Nguyen Vu Ha, CEO of Viettel High Tech, said the 5G pilot network is its starting point to participate in the Indian market. With a population of 1.4 billion, India has attracted many leading technology corporations. 

“Our ultimate goal is to facilitate Make-In-India products via cooperation in R&D and manufacturing with a prestigious Indian partner like UTL Group,” he underlined.

The Vietnamese company develops full 5G network architecture including five layers: Service/App layers, Core layers, Transportation layers, Access layers, and Devices. It is expected to make Vietnam one of the few countries that can produce 5G equipment.
