VHT is the first Vietnamese enterprise to be certified to meet national technical regulations on 5G mobile transceiver stations (QCVN 128:2021/BTTTT).

Nguyen Thanh Phuc, Director of the Authority of Telecommunications, assessed that Viettel's successful production of 5G base stations demonstrates not only the group's pioneering and outstanding capacity, but also the country’s autonomy capability in terms of technology.

This achievement, according to Phuc, came from the group’s continuous efforts and strong investment in research and development.

In the context that the world is entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution with 5G technology as the foundation, owning and mastering this technology will help Vietnam improve its competitiveness and promote socio-economic development, especially create favorable conditions for new industries such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and big data (Big Data) to develop.

“This is an important milestone in the country's telecommunications technology development process, affirming the maturity and creativity of the telecommunications industry and promoting the 5G commercialization process in Vietnam,” Phuc stressed.

VHT is now capable of providing a full set of solutions for 5G networks from the core network, transmission network to 5G base station. The 5G base station holds an important position in the infrastructure structure of telecommunications network. VHT masters all hardware and software, the entire process from research, design to production of such a base station. To date, VHT has launched more than 300 gNodeB 8T8R base stations and 10 gNodeB 32T32R base stations in four localities, namely Ha Nam, Hanoi, Da Nang, and Ninh Thuan. The stations have operated stably, ensuring network continuity.

Over the past year, VHT has coordinated with the Authority of Telecommunications to fully evaluate 16 radio criteria according to the technical regulations equivalent to international standards of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The company has continuously adjusted and upgraded the equipment and updated deployment capabilities on real network systems. This is the reason for VHT to master the latest core technology and increase customization when working with international partners.

VHT General Director Nguyen Vu Ha said that Viettel's engineers live with products, are responsible for products and daily work side-by-side with customers, so Viettel’s products improve quickly. Attentively, Viettel handles and fixes network problems or errors in a short period of time. That is the advantage of those who both master and produce and do business in a closed system. Ha committed to working with units of the Ministry of Information and Communications to perfect products, meeting domestic needs, and bringing Made-in-Vietnam products to go global.
