MobiFone will deploy a Nokia 100G Optical Transport Network (OTN) and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) regional network from Ho Chi Minh City to more than 10 provinces in southern Vietnam.

The new transport network will enable MobiFone, the country's market leader in mobile communications, to provide innovative and high capacity services in these key economic zones, home to a significant percentage of the operator's 40 million subscribers.

Nokia said that it will provide the 100G DWDM solution with L1 Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) transport to support increasing traffic in these regions. Nokia's 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) will help maximize network capacity and efficiency, enabling faster deployment of newer services. When deployed, the new transport network will be able to support increased traffic capacity of 300G and system expansion up to 8Tbps in future.

Nyuyen Bao Long, Deputy General Director, MobiFone
It is critical for us to upgrade the transport network to add capacity, meet rising data demand in this key economic region and be in a position to deliver superior speed and quality of service. This is all the more important as MobiFone gears up to launch 4G services early 2017. 

Harald Preiss, Head of Asia, Nokia 
With our innovative and proven 100G OTN solution, we are in a strong position to help MobiFone optimize its networks and open new and exciting opportunities for its subscribers.
