Dung spoke at an important event witnessing the first call made with 5G technology on Viettel network with ‘made in Vietnam’ equipment on January 17.

On that historic day, Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung and Minister of Science and Technology (MoST) Chu Ngoc Anh made the first video call with gNodeB, which was researched and developed by Viettel, which included both software and hardware devices.

Viettel’s engineers developed gNodeB 5G within six months, from June and December 2019 on the basis of the experience it gained from the development eNodeB, the transceiver for 4G and from the pre-feasibility study for 5G.
