Vietnam Accelerating 6G Development

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) is setting up a team to accelerate the creation of 6G equipment in collaboration with internal agencies and three major telecommunications carriers, including the state-run group Viettel.

The team will review the system of legal documents to encourage the 6G technology ecosystem and will test and evaluate 6G equipment. It will be led by the Deputy Director of the Authority of Information Technology and Communications Industry, Nguyen Thien Nghia.

The group will also put forth management, assessment, inspection, and testing regulations regarding 6G equipment. Better guidelines and a clear technology framework will lead to more secure 6G networks in the future.

The team will look at international case studies to build a strategy for the development, assessment, and testing of equipment in Vietnam. The group will monitor the 6G equipment research and development around the world, collecting information on equipment types, supportive bands, prices, and standardisation.

It will also attend 6G technology conferences and seminars both abroad and in the country. They will gather data about 6G equipment development, assessment, inspection, and testing. The group will also work on fostering international cooperation in the research and development of 6G technology and equipment.

Previously, MIC formed a steering committee dedicated to advancing 6G mobile information technology. Its objectives included developing strategies, mechanisms, and policies to facilitate a legal framework and drive research, standards, applications, information security, production, and commercialisation efforts related to 6G mobile communication devices and services.

The commencement of the 6G standard and its commercial rollout is anticipated to begin around 2028, with widespread commercial deployment likely occurring in 2030. The primary focus of 6G networks will revolve around both humans and machines, offering advanced services such as augmented reality, high-precision mobile holograms, and digital replicas.

Smart homes will be widely adopted when smart devices can be remotely connected and controlled. Additionally, the deployment of intelligent traffic management systems, autonomous vehicles, and flying taxis can be facilitated using 6G network technology.

At present, there are five global manufacturers of 5G equipment, and several countries have initiated research into 6G technology. According to MIC, Vietnam is eager to stay on par with the rest of the world in the development of 6G technology. Viettel, in particular, is actively involved in research and development efforts aimed at producing 6G equipment and securing 6G patents.

During the initial half of 2023, Viettel reported that it actively encouraged the migration of subscribers from 2G and 3G networks to 4G, resulting in a notable surge in the number of 4G users. Additionally, Viettel conducted testing of 5G services across 55 provinces and cities during this period.

Especially for the 5G project, Viettel will adhere to the established development timeline for the network. Viettel has been actively conducting tests of 5G services and assessing their quality. The company anticipates rolling out 5G services to the public on a large scale starting in the third quarter of 2023.

Last month, MIC requested the government to amend the relevant regulations on frequency auctions. As OpenGov Asia reported, the preparations are nearly complete to put the 700 MHz frequency for 4G and 5G technology development up for auction soon. The anticipated outcomes from the new regulations include addressing challenges in the process of frequency auctions, speeding up 4G development and the commercialisation of 5G.
