Alcatel to help launch first MMS in Vietnam

Vietnam’s MobiFone has selected French Alcatel to help launch the country’s first Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) in the city of Hanoi. MobiFone is the brand name of the GSM network operated by Vietnam Mobile Telecom Services Company (VMS) in cooperation with Comvik International Vietnam (CIV).

According to press reports, the Multimedia Messaging Services Center (MMSC) will be installed in MobiFone’s soon-to-be launched GPRS network, which is also supplied by Alcatel.

Alcatel has had a presence in Vietnam since 1993, and has supplied 25 percent of the country’s mobile networks. Alcatel has built more than 50 per cent of Vietnam’s fixed digital switching networks.
