Viettel Telecom, one of Vietnam's leading mobile service providers, will use Nokia Siemens Networks' Flexi Base Station for part of its network expansion across Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

"Key to Viettel's leadership strategy in the Vietnamese telecom market is expansion across rural areas, in line with its growth in other regions; and in a competitive market, its success will depend on how fast and cost effectively it is able to do so. Our pioneering Flexi Base Stations are ideal for rapid network expansion for any operator in such a scenario. We are very pleased to have this opportunity to work with Viettel, now one of the most dynamic operators in the region," said Ricky Corker, head of Subregion Asia North, Nokia Siemens Networks Vietnam.

Nokia Siemens Networks' relationship with Viettel Telecom started in 2007, when the company deployed a cost-efficient mobile softswitching solution for the operator. This is Nokia Siemens Networks' first GSM Base Station deal with Viettel, and as such is a significant entry for the company in Vietnam.
