Samsung helps Viettel with commercial 5G network trials in Vietnam


Last updated: December 13th, 2021 at 08:37 UTC+02:00

Samsung has announced that it has partnered with Vietnamese telecom carrier Viettel to help with commercial 5G network trials. Viettel is currently testing commercial 5G networks in Da Nang, the largest city in the Central Vietnam region. The telecom operator is using the South Korean firm’s advanced 5G network equipment for high performance and reliability.

Over the years, Viettel has created a network infrastructure to offer 4G services to 97% of the population. Now, the company has started upgrading its equipment to offer 5G services. The company has been operating 5G networks trials in 10 cities and provinces, including Ba Ria–Vung Tau, Bac Giang, Bac Ninh, Binh Phuoc, Dong Nai, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Thua Thien–Hue, and Vinh Phuc. People in these regions can use 5G networks for free with unlimited capacity.

Viettel is using Samsung Network’s 4G and 5G network equipment, and people have been experiencing average 5G data speeds of 600-700Mbps. Depending on network congestion and signal strength, download speeds can go as high as 1Gbps in some regions. For the commercial 5G trials in Da Nang, the operator is using Samsung’s baseband, 64T64R Massive MIMO radios, and mid-band spectrum radios.

Samsung’s 64T64R 5G Massive MIMO radio can offer high data speeds in highly congested areas. The company also makes end-to-end 5G solutions, including 5G core, 5G vRAN, 5G antennas, and AI-based network automation and management tools.

Tao Duc Thang, Deputy General Director of Viettel, “Viettel has continued to prioritize building 5G infrastructure in key areas of the city. Viettel will join hands to make smart city development in Da Nang more synchronous and modern, to connect broadband in multi-dimensional and safe ways, ensuring best network infrastructure for digital government development, supporting for business and growth of Da Nang.
