MENA set to become leading region for 5G
Telecoms giant Ericsson has secured 5G contracts in Saudi Arabia and the UAE which will see the Swedish company roll out next-gen communications networks in the Middle East.
Ericsson has revealed it signed 5G partnerships with Saudi Telecom (Saudi Arabia), and Etisalat (UAE).
An Ericsson spokesman said: “5G unlocks the possibility of reshaping connectivity in the UAE, empowering an intelligent, sustainable and connected society.
“Together with Etisalat, we have created a clear roadmap and built a robust ecosystem that will enable us to maximize the potential of 5G, including conducting market trials and exploring market potential.
“We look forward to continuing that close and trustful work with Etisalat to help them make 5G a reality for their customers.”
Ericsson has been at the forefront of the implementation of 5G, implementing it in a number of ports and within critical infrastructure in recent months.
