New technology promises better implementation of IoT in VN

The technology of Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) has been introduced to Vietnam, yet unable to attract much interest from related businesses. The turning point came when Viettel announced its successful implementation of the technology in the recent Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC 2019), themed ‘Intelligent Connectivity’ and held in Spain. Now many practical applications of NB-IoT are more sought-after.

Vietnam suggested being well-prepared for promising 5G technology

Opposite voices have been given at the international conference on 4G/5G technologies in Hanoi about whether Vietnam should prepare itself for the upcoming 5G technology while the 4G one has just been adopted. It was then concluded that the development of 5G technology was the inevitable, and that Vietnam should be properly-prepared if it did not want to be left behind.
