MobiFone is leveraging Ciena technology to build the Vietnamese operator's first high-capacity converged packet-optical network.

Currently provisioned with 300Gbps, the network spans more than 1,400 kilometers across the country from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City.

This will help MobiFone provide high-speed mobile broadband services to businesses and consumers in more than 25 local provinces.

With the network, MobiFone will be able to easily scale and automatically adapt network capabilities.

Additionally, the network will use Ciena’s intelligent control plane technology to ensure survivability even in the case of multiple fiber cuts.

ELCOM, a Ciena BizConnect channel partner, provided deployment services for this project.

“Ciena’s cutting-edge optical platforms enable us to have a state-of-art backbone system. Demand for high-speed fixed and mobile data services, video content and the move to the cloud mean that network services in Vietnam have never been more important,” said Le Nam Tra, chairman of MobiFone.

“With Ciena supporting the next evolution of the MobiFone backbone we can provide the scale and reach our consumer and business customers need for regional and international connectivity,” said the chairman.
