Using the Qualcomm® X100 5G RAN Accelerator Card and Massive MIMO Qualcomm® QRU100 5G RAN Platform combined with Viettel High Technology’s advanced hardware and software systems will help Viettel to accelerate the development and commercialization of high-performance Open RAN massive MIMO solutions, which simplify network deployment and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
More specifically, Qualcomm will provide Viettel with 2 packages of 5G chipset solutions to develop 5G Massive MIMO products. The first is X100 Accelerator Card that handles the baseband to integrate with the existing Viettel CU/DU system (running on the Intel x86 CPU platform). Second, Qualcomm provides the main chipset solution for the MassiveMIMO 32T32R and 64T64R radio block designs. Accompanying that is technical support from Qualcomm's expert team.
Viettel is one of four global partners trusted and selected by Qualcomm to participate in the development and application of this new 5G chipset of Qualcomm. Combining Viettel’s telecommunications infrastructure development expertise with Qualcomm Technologies’ leadership in developing high performance and low power Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) 5G solutions for device and infrastructure products will advance the cellular ecosystem and accelerating the innovation cycle.
