Viettel taps Qualcomm for 5G Infrastructure

Qualcomm Technologies Inc. and Viettel Group are working together to build a next-generation 5G Radio Unit (RU) with enormous MIMO capabilities and distributed units (DUs).

This is aimed at accelerating the development and deployment of 5G network infrastructure and services in Vietnam and around the world.

Viettel expects to accelerate the development and commercialization of high-performance Open RAN massive MIMO solutions, which simplify network deployment and lower the total cost of ownership, by combining the Qualcomm X100 5G RAN Accelerator Card and Massive MIMO Qualcomm QRU100 5G RAN Platform with its own advanced hardware and software systems (TCO).

Qualcomm has chosen Viettel as one of four global partners to work on the development and use of its new 5G chipset. The agreement, according to Qualcomm, will enhance the cellular ecosystem and speed up the innovation cycle.
