Vietnam's Viettel invests in Juniper platform for network refresh

Viettel Group, Vietnam’s largest telecommunications group, which boasts a growing international footprint, has selected the MX960 Universal Routing Platform from Juniper Networks, a provider of secure, AI-driven networks, for its network refresh.

Juniper says the upgrades will help Viettel better scale its consumer mobile and fixed broadband services, especially as networking demands increase, aligning with the Vietnamese government’s push to drive economic growth through technology.

Vietnam is home toover 77 million internet usersand is thefastest-growing digital economy in Southeast Asia. For more than a decade, Viettel has relied on Juniper routing and security solutions for core, edge and metro access networks. Viettel selected Juniper'sMX960 Universal Routing PlatformandMX-SPC3 Services Cardsto enhance its carrier-grade network address translation (CGNAT) capacity to meet increasing traffic growth and leverage the additional processing power required for seamless network address translation.

Viettel chose to upgrade its CGNAT capabilities in order to efficiently meet the growing demand for mobile and broadband services across urban and rural areas while maximizing its public IPv4 addresses. Among other key service capabilities, the upgrade allows IPv4 and IPv6 to seamlessly coexist in Viettel’s network.

These improvements have empowered Viettel to efficiently expand its consumer mobile and fixed broadband services, providing, says Juniper, unparalleled experiences for its subscribers across a wide range of services, including gaming, streaming and work applications.
