Inphi acquires assets in Vietnam from Arrive Technologies

Inphi has acquired certain assets from Arrive Technologies, located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Arrive Technologies, founded in 2001, has 112 employees with strong design capabilities in embedded software, digital ASIC, post silicon validation and FPGA emulation. The team has designed highly complex transport framers and products including pseudowire and circuit emulation functions with domain expertise including, but not limited to, OTN/SONET, FEC, PTP, and Security (IPsec). Arrive had been engaged with many of Inphi’s system OEM customers in the cloud, telecom and 5G markets. 

Inphi said the addition of these resources will provide Inphi with front-end design, verification, validation and firmware skills that complement Inphi’s existing design teams in Singapore and Vietnam.

“Resource allocation for new projects is an industry challenge. With the acquisition of resources from Arrive, we are now able to dedicate a world-class engineering team to projects targeting our cloud and telecom customers,” said Ford Tamer, President and CEO of Inphi Corporation. “We welcome the team from Arrive to the Inphi family and are excited to advance our shared commitments in driving successful customer engagement, industry-leading innovation and best of class execution.”

Vietnam's Viettel deploys 5G timing with ADVA and NEC

Vietnam's Viettel has deployed ADVA’s Oscilloquartz timing solution throughout Laos and Myanmar to provide nationwide 4G services and prepare its synchronization network for 5G.

Installed and maintained by NEC, the new solution is built on ADVA’s OSA 3230B primary reference cesium clock (PRC) for assured and precise synchronization with or without GNSS. It also features ADVA’s versatile ultra-compact synchronization supply units (SSUs) with high-capacity PTP modules for grandmaster clock functionality.

ADVA said its Oscilloquartz SSUs enable Viettel to maintain its legacy synchronization networks and evolve ultra-precise, highly reliable timing to meet the requirements of time-sensitive applications and 5G connectivity. All elements of the new timing solution are overseen from Viettel’s headquarters in Vietnam using ADVA’s Ensemble Controller with Sync Director.

“This deployment enables the end-to-end distribution of assured, precise and highly reliable timing. It utilizes our OSA 3230B PRC for superb accuracy with the smallest size and power footprint, as well as our ultra-scalable SSUs. With this solution, we’ve empowered Viettel to address all its most urgent synchronization needs, helped it protect past investments and opened the door to further expansion,” commented Erik Lindberg, VP, sales, APAC, ADVA. “Our close collaboration with NEC was key to the success of this project. It’s a relationship based on a great deal of trust and a shared passion to push the boundaries of possibility. And that partnership is now delivering valuable results for service providers across East Asia.”

“We’re extremely pleased to be working with our global partner, ADVA, and helping Viettel to achieve its ambitions of taking its timing infrastructure in Laos and Myanmar to the next level. By harnessing the most advanced innovation and our ongoing support, Viettel is ensuring unprecedented levels of precision and reliability as it tackles demand for low-latency services from its mobile customers,” said Mayuko Tatewaki, general manager, service provider division, NEC Corporation. “At NEC, we know the value of synchronization with strict precision. It’s one of the key components when designing 5G-ready networks. Now Viettel has a future-proof timing solution controlled by a single management system and is able to deliver phenomenally accurate phase and frequency alignment all the way from the radio base station to the core.”

Vietnam's Viettel deploys 5G with Nokia

Viettel and Nokia have broadcasted the first end-to-end 5G network in Ho Chi Minh City.

Specifically, Viettel and Nokia have set up 10 5G base stations in the area of Ward 12, District 10, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's biggest city with more than 2,000 km2 area and a population of 13 million. The project sets the basis for a comprehensive evaluation of the band, coverage and application of 5G before commercialization in 2020.

Nokia said it deployed the 5G network in a very short time frame, building on its existing LTE footprint with the operator, upgrading the entire infrastructure from radio access, Cloud Packet Core and transmission to 5G technology. Viettel’s first cloud-based Packet Core network is currently serving its live subscribers. The network will offer a range of real-time 5G end-user experiences, such as VR gaming and 8K resolution streaming, as well as enabling Nokia’s Fixed Wireless Access.

Vietnam's MobiFone selects Nokia solution for 100 Gbit/s OTN + DWDM regional network

Nokia announced that MobiFone of Vietnam, the largest mobile operator in the country with over 40 million subscribers, is deploying a 100 Gbit/s OTN and DWDM regional network from Ho Chi Minh City to 10 provinces in southern Vietnam.

The new transport network supplied by Nokia is designed to enable MobiFone to deliver new, high capacity services in the key economic zones in the south of Vietnam, where a significant proportion of its subscribers are located.

Under the agreement, Nokia will provide its 100 Gbit/s DWDM solution with L1 GMPLS transport capability to support traffic growth in the regions. Nokia's 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) will to increase network capacity and improve efficiency, as well as helping speed the deployment of new services. When completed, the new transport network will be support increased traffic capacity of up to 300 Gbit/s and enable system expansion up to 8 Tbit/s capacity in future.

MobiFone is one of the three major mobile network operators in Vietnam claiming a market share of around 30% and operating nearly 30,000 2G and 20,000 3G base stations across the country. The company is planning to launch 4G services during 2017.

Earlier in February, Nokia announced it was providing Xiaomi, a major electronics manufacture and ISP in China, with a an optical network to link 7 data centres in the Beijing region. The Nokia data centre interconnect (DCI) solution was based on the 1830 PSS, managed by the Network Services Platform.

In November 2016, Nokia announced that dtac, part of the Telenor Group and the second mobile operator in Thailand, had selected products from its IP/optical portfolio to upgrade its backbone network, to include implementing a software-defined network (SDN)-ready IP and Optical network. For the project, Nokia was to supply the 7950 Extensible Routing System (XRS) and 1830 PSS.

Vietnam's Hanoi Telecom Deploys Infinera

Hanoi Telecom Corporation (HTC), a wireless telecom operator, selected Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks to advance its optical network in Vietnam. HTC offers carrier and wholesale services, focusing primarily on providing wireless, broadband and VoIP services and is riding a wave of tremendous mobile data growth in the region. The company offers its retail mobile services under Vietnam Mobile to more than 13 million wireless subscribers.

Specifically, HTC extended its existing Infinera TM-Series metro network with the DTN-X Family for its backbone connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Vung Tau. The selection via Infinera’s established local partner, Nissho Electronics Vietnam positions HTC with a unified metro and backbone network that includes a common network management system for rapid service delivery in the region.

HTC is the first operator in Vietnam to use the Infinera DTN-X XTC Series and this is the first time any network in Vietnam is deploying 500 Gbps super-channels.

Infinera said HTC will be able to use its unique Instant Bandwidth, which enables optical capacity to be software-activated in 100 Gbps increments with the click of a mouse.

“We intend to advance the deployment of high bandwidth solutions to our customers in the Vietnam market by using the DTN-X XTC Series based on the innovative PIC technology,” said Madam Trinh Minh Chau, Chairwoman and CEO of Hanoi Telecom. “Infinera’s Instant Bandwidth allows us to differentiate our services through pre-deployed capacity which can be delivered on-demand via software defined activation. In addition, Infinera’s platforms have demonstrated the type of reliability and quality we are looking for in our network.”
