NDO – A strategic partnership signing ceremony for the building of a smart urban area at Phenikaa University was signed by Phenikaa-X JSC, Viettel Networks and Qualcomm on November 23.

Under the deal, Phenikaa University’s campus will be turned into the first smart and innovative micro-city in Vietnam, featuring many 4.0 technology products including digital maps, automated vehicles, smart robots, cameras, flying devices, virtual reality devices, devices using AI technology, and others.

As a result, the school's activities will be transformed to digital platforms, comprehensively changing the management and operation of facilities at the university.

Viettel Networks will deploy 5G connectivity and edge computing infrastructure while Qualcomm will provide chips and modules to connect to 5G networks.

Phenikaa University will become the first place in Vietnam and Southeast Asia to deploy 5G networks simultaneously on both 2600 MHz and 26GHz bands.

In addition, Viettel Networks and Qualcomm will support Phenikaa-X in R&D work to research and test new products and promote the development of “Made in Vietnam” solutions and smart urban applications.
