Thailand's True selects Ericsson 5G RAN

True Corporation Plc (True) of Thailand has selected Ericsson as a 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) vendor as part of its national 5G network.

The Ericsson Radio System will enable True to operate 5G on 700MHz (low-band), 2.6GHz (mid-band) and 26GHz (high-band) frequencies in the North, Central-West, and Upper South regions of Thailand. Network rollout got underway in March 2020 immediately following Ericsson’s selection as a 5G vendor.

Ericsson said the deployment includes active antenna products to support beam-forming functions that reduce wireless signal interference and improve 5G speed. In addition, True will benefit from increased system capacity and improved 5G user experience through 4G/5G dual connectivity and LTE-New Radio downlink data aggregation functions.

Nadine Allen, President of Ericsson Thailand, says: “With its higher reliability and speeds coupled with ultra-low latency, 5G technology will have a significant impact on both industries and consumers in Thailand. Ericsson is leading the way in terms of 5G deployments across the globe and we are delighted to make 5G experiences a reality for True’s customers soon.”

ZTE claims 75% share of True's beyond-100G backbone

ZTE announced that it has won the bid for three networks as part of True's beyond-100 Gbit/s backbone WDM network project in Thailand, representing an approximately 75% share of the project.
The new backbone transmission networks is designed to enable True to support functions such as ultra-high capacity OTN cross-connection, intelligent scheduling of optical networks and ultra-long-distance transmission. The project will also help True to address future service development and further develop its network in the future.

ZTE noted that the DWDM network will enable 100/400 Gbit/s backbone transmission speeds and will significantly improve True's network capacity and support service growth across its 3G/LTE, fixed and broadband networks.

For the project, ZTE is deploying its 100 Gbit/s and beyond-100 Gbit/s WASON solution featuring advanced PM-QPSK/PM-16QAM modulation and coherent reception technology. The solution also includes its digital signal processing (DSP) algorithm and third-generation soft decision forward error correction (SD-FEC) to enable transmission without the need for electronic relays across the network, thereby reducing the cost.

ZTE noted that the software-defined optical networking (SDON) technology is designed to make optical network transmission more intelligent and speed service deployment time, as well as enhancing the efficiency of network scheduling. In addition, the solution features embedded OTDR technology that allows real-time monitoring of the fibre and fault points of the existing network to enhance network maintenance and troubleshooting.


The project also includes colourless directionless contationless flexgrid ROADM (CDCF ROADM) functionality, designed to address True's requirements for transparent transmission, flexible scheduling, aggregation, management and monitoring of data services.

Thailand's dtac Picks Nokia for Transport + IP

dtac, part of the Telenor Group and the second largest mobile operator in Thailand, has selected Nokia's IP/Optical portfolio for delivering ultra-broadband mobile access to more than 40 percent of Thailand's population. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The number of mobile subscribers in Thailand is increasing rapidly, stimulating greater demand for advanced networks to support surging data consumption. dtac needed a core network to handle the increased data demand, but also with the open interfaces and the programmability necessary to support a migration to SDN.

Nokia's 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) and the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS), will replace dtac's existing IP core routing and DWDM infrastructure. dtac is also deploying Nokia's Wavelength Routing Engine GMPLS (Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching) Control Plane at the optical layer to provide automated network operation, as well as Nokia's security gateway for dtac's LTE network.

Sebastien Laurent, head of Nokia Thailand, said: "Deploying Nokia's end-to-end IP/DWDM Core solution provides the foundation for an SDN-centric network and will allow dtac to implement on-demand services while also easing operation and maintenance demands. Deploying this technology will make dtac the first carrier in Thailand positioned to implement carrier SDN in preparation for the cloud era."

US$300M SUPERNAP Thailand Aims to be First Tier IV Gold Data Center In Asia

Construction is underway of a new US$300 million (11 billion THB) SUPERNAP data center in in Thailand’s eastern province Chonburi.

The new SUPERNAP Thailand data center, which is in the Hemmaraj Industrial Estate, will cover an area of nearly 75 rai or 12 hectares and will be strategically built outside the flood zone, 110-meters above sea level and only 27 kilometers away from an international submarine cable landing station.  The facility, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2017, will have capacity for more than 6,000 data server racks.

SUPERNAP Thailand will be the first Uptime Institute rated Tier IV Gold data center in Asia, as well as the largest data center in the Kingdom.

“The SUPERNAP Thailand data center is a mirror of Switch SUPERNAP U.S. facilities, which are the first Tier IV Gold carrier-neutral colocation data centers on the planet. This cutting-edge data center will meet the global demand for innovation in Asia Pacific,” said CEO of SUPERNAP International Khaled Bichara. “With the emergence of the AEC and with Thailand’s focus on digital growth, this data center will set a new precedent for quality, security and innovation in Asia Pacific. We look forward to working with Thailand to attract more investment and more growth to the Thai digital economy.”

SUPERNAP International is developing the project in partnership with a group of leading Thai organizations, including CPB Equity, Kasikorn Bank, Siam Commercial Bank and True IDC. Executives from Kasikorn Bank and Siam Commercial Bank say the development of the SUPERNAP Thailand data center will enhance the banks’ use of technology to better serve their customers and provide a homegrown solution for Thai companies that seek to expand their IT capabilities.

Huawei Cites Another Core Routing Win in Thailand

Huawei will provide its NE5000E 400G core routers for Total Access Communication Public Company Limited (DTAC), a large-scale mobile service provider in Thailand. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Huawei said its NE5000E core routers simplify DTAC's backbone networks, upgrade the existing 40G equipment to 400G, and implement networking between 100GE and 10GE by changing subboards, thereby protecting investments.

Gai Gang, president of Huawei's Carrier IP Product Line explained that "Rapid development of UMTS broadband and video services will generate tremendous traffic growth on backbone networks. Existing network architectures need to be upgraded. Now is the time to apply 400G technology. "

Thailand's True Picks Huawei's Core Router

True, a communication service provider in Thailand, has selected Huawei's 5000E core router for its 3G IP core network.   The NE5000E supports flexible networking of 100GE ports, 40GE ports, and 10GE ports for backbone networks.  Financial terms were not disclosed.


"Traffic on the backbone network increases explosively as mobile broadband services and video services develop dramatically. It's time for the 400G technology to apply to live networks. Huawei leads the 400G technology and provides solutions that facilitate network capacity expansion and remove bandwidth bottlenecks, helping carriers construct Future-oriented backbone networks," said Mr. Gai Gang, President of Huawei Carrier IP Product Line.
