FPT Telecom and Ciena improve network connectivity in Vietnam

2 Feb 2021

FPT Telecom has deployed hardware and software from Ciena to build a more resilient network and manage rising residential broadband traffic across Vietnam driven by entertainment and smart home services. Ciena says that its 6500 Packet-Optical Platform powered by WaveLogic Ai coherent optics will increase FPT Telecom’s network capacity and provide real-time link performance metrics, thereby giving the operator the ability to optimise capacity and network efficiencies, while the vendor’s Manage, Control and Plan (MCP) domain controller eliminates manual and time-consuming steps in upgrading and operating FPT Telecom’s network, which covers 59 provinces and cities in Vietnam.

‘Delivering fast and reliable connectivity is the foundation of making Vietnam a more connected nation and equips us to play in the international arena,’ said Hoang Viet Anh, CEO of FPT Telecom, adding: ‘With Ciena’s coherent optical and intelligent software platforms, FPT Telecom delivers more engaging digital experiences and ensures our customers get the most value from new technology trends.’
