FPT IS, a subsidiary of software giant FPT, has announced it has won a one-million USD software contract from Lao Telecommunications Company to develop a network operation centre in Laos.

To win the contract, FPT IS had to overcome bids by leading telecommunications providers from China and Thailand.

The centre is a software application developed by FPT that will open up opportunities to deploy the overall operating systems for all telecoms companies in the region.

The centre is expected to be finished within five months. The new software application will help Laos to focus on managing its whole telecoms network, including wireless, core and transmission.-VNA
