Ericsson announced that it has signed an agreeement with the state- owned, VNPT Group, Vietnam’s leading communications service provider to help accelerate the adoption of Industry 4.0 in the country.

The partnership will help expand IoT capabilities across the VNPT's mobile network by leveraging Ericsson’s IoT cellular capability and VNPT’s IoT ecosystem.

These capabilities will make it possible to provide new digital services to VNPT’s consumer and enterprise customers as well as support e-Government initiatives. The agreement is highly strategic for both entities and aims to accelerate the adoption of Industry 4.0 in Vietnam, digitally transforming industries including manufacturing, agriculture, transport and energy. 

Pham Duc Long, CEO of VNPT
We are creating additional value for our consumer and enterprise customers now through advanced digital services enabled by 4G NB-IoT for less demanding Massive IoT use cases, and then 5G for more advanced use cases with much higher data volumes and extreme low-latency requirements in the very near future.

Denis Brunetti, Head of Ericsson Vietnam and Myanmar
By providing our 4G NB-IoT capabilities as well as leveraging our recently launched ‘IoT Innovation Hub’ in Vietnam, we are looking to fuel and drive the IoT ecosystem in Vietnam and create momentum towards 5G.
