13 Sep 2022

Infinera has announced that Viettel has selected its Optical Timing Channel 2.0 (OTC2.0) solution to prepare the Vietnamese operator’s synchronisation network for a 5G pilot rollout. The OTC2.0 solution is a standalone synchronisation technology that can be deployed across virtually all DWDM networks from any vendor to ensure timing and synchronisation of cell towers is seamless and meets the demanding performance criteria required by 5G applications even in challenging fibre environments. ‘Resilient and accurate synchronisation performance enables us to fully utilise our most valuable asset, our spectrum,’ said Dao Xuan Tung, Project Leader of Research and Implementation of Time/Phase Synchronisation Systems for 5G Networks at Viettel, adding: ‘Infinera’s OTC2.0 solution will enable us to deploy a comprehensive 5G network and deliver superior solutions to our customers.’
