NuRAN Wireless, Viettel Partner to Develop 5G Massive MIMO base station

0

NuRAN Wireless, through its wholly owned subsidiary Nutaq Innovation, has entered into an agreement with Viettel’s Network Technologies Center (“VTTEK”) for a 5G Massive MIMO project for the development of a 5G Massive MIMO base station prototype.

Nutaq Innovations has entered into an agreement with Viettel’s Network Technologies Center (VTTEK) for a joint collaboration program for the development of a 5G Massive MIMO base station prototype.

Both organizations are joining forces in this program that covers the implementation of baseband processing for 5G Massive MIMO as well as the design of a 5G Baseband Processor Unit (BBU) and Remote Radio Units (RRH).

Viettel has a significant presence in 12 countries in Asia, Africa and America and serves over 90,000,000 users making it one of the largest telecommunication companies in the World. Viettel also has considerable experience with universalizing telecommunications in many developing countries, therefore understanding that connecting people is a basic need.

Achieving 5G’s anticipated speeds of up to 1000Gbps and a thousand-fold increase in capacity requires the development of a multitude of new components and techniques to improve spectral efficiency, accommodate more users including connected devices (Internet of Things), increase data rates, and reduce power consumption.

As part of its contribution to the joint collaboration program, Nutaq will supply its TitanMIMO, the world’s most complete 5G testbed that can support up to 1000 transceivers (or antenna elements) and enables real-time, wideband, Massive MIMO implementation. The system also allows measurement in different channel conditions. In line with its mission for supporting innovation in wireless communication technology, Nutaq will additionally provide dedicated technical staff to support the joint research program.

Francis Letourneau, VP Sales and Marketing of NuRAN Wireless, said “Viettel is a key partner for NuRAN Wireless and our Nutaq subsidiary. Both NuRAN and Viettel will benefit from joining forces and combining their experience and expertise. We are expecting to see concrete results from this collaboration both in terms of the evolution of Nutaq’s 5G massive MIMO testbed, as well as NuRAN’s future 5G cellular network products.”

“NuRAN Wireless and Nutaq Innovations are committed to ‘connecting the billion’ by leveraging more than 25 years of wireless innovation. This latest joint collaboration is one more example of how we are at the forefront of what is happening today in wireless. We recently announced our successful international process patent application which further demonstrates our ability to innovate and work at the cutting edge of wireless evolution” states Tristan Martin, Director of Business Development at Nutaq Innovations.
