Vietnam-based telco Global Telecom Corporation (GTel) has inked a deal with equipment vendor Alcatel-Lucent to improve the cellco’s wireless services in central and northern Vietnam. The vendor will provide GTel with a business support system (BSS) wireless network and a microwave transmission system, and has announced it will extend its training assistance to the cellco’s staff while the network is being built. GTel Mobile, which was licensed to develop a mobile telecom network in Vietnam in September 2008, is a joint venture between Vietnamese state-owned Global Telecommunications Corporation and Russia’s Vimpelcom Group. Once operational, GTel hopes to offer fixed, mobile and broadband services.
