AMD and Viettel Collaborate on 5G Mobile Network Expansion

── Viettel selects Xilinx Zynq MPSoC and RFSoC adaptive platforms to enable its next-generation 5G systems serving more than 130 million mobile customers globally ──

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 01, 2022 — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Viet­tel High Tech (Mem­ber of Viet­tel Group) today announ­ced the suc­cessful com­ple­ti­on of a 5G mobi­le net­work field tri­al deploy­ment con­duc­ted by Viet­tel and powered by AMD Xilinx Zynq™ UltraS­ca­le+™ MPSoC devices. As the lar­gest tele­com ope­ra­tor in Viet­nam ser­ving more than 130 mil­li­on mobi­le cus­to­mers, Viet­tel High Tech has a rich histo­ry of using AMD radio tech­no­lo­gy with pri­or 4G deploy­ments and is now acce­le­ra­ting new net­works via new 5G remo­te radio heads. Desi­gned to meet the gro­wing capa­ci­ty and per­for­mance requi­re­ments of mobi­le users glo­bal­ly, the Viet­tel 5G mobi­le net­work is expec­ted to be com­ple­ted by the end of 2022.

AMD is the exclu­si­ve radio unit sili­con sup­pli­er for Viettel’s indi­ge­nous 5G radio deve­lo­p­ment. After the suc­cessful com­ple­ti­on of the first field tri­al, Zynq MPSoCs are now set to be exten­ded to an addi­tio­nal 300 Macro 8T8R base sta­ti­ons and 900 5G 8T8R Macro radi­os. The Zynq UltraS­ca­le+ MPSoC was also cho­sen by Viet­tel for its first-gene­ra­ti­on 64T64R Mas­si­ve MIMO radio which is curr­ent­ly being opti­mi­zed for field tri­als. Viet­tel is deve­lo­ping the next gene­ra­ti­on of radi­os to also include Zynq UltraS­ca­le+ RFSoC devices, to pro­vi­de indus­try-lea­ding inte­gra­ti­on and hig­her performance.

Viet­tel is com­mit­ted to advan­cing mobi­le tech­no­lo­gy lea­der­ship by working clo­se­ly with AMD to incor­po­ra­te its adap­ta­ble SoC tech­no­lo­gy into our new gene­ra­ti­on of 5G net­works,” said Nguy­en Vu Ha, gene­ral direc­tor of Viet­tel High Tech. “Going from VHT’s histo­ry of making 4G BTS, this decis­i­on to sca­le for the gro­wing demands of 5G was based on eva­lua­ting various fac­tors inclu­ding fle­xi­bi­li­ty, sim­pli­fi­ca­ti­on, design sta­bi­li­ty and the expe­ri­ence of engineers.”

5G pro­vi­des new oppor­tu­ni­ties to offer hig­her levels of per­for­mance, power effi­ci­en­cy and new ser­vices along with increased relia­bi­li­ty requi­red to meet the gro­wing data demands of cel­lu­lar net­works,” said You­sef Kha­li­lol­lahi, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent of APAC sales, Adap­ti­ve and Embedded Com­pu­ting Group, AMD. “We are proud of our clo­se col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Viet­tel and remain focu­sed on enab­ling its mobi­le net­work to deli­ver the opti­mal end-user expe­ri­ence as well as the fle­xi­bi­li­ty to evol­ve and grow as Viettel’s user base and requi­red band­width con­ti­nue to increase globally.”
