Etisalat and Ericsson are embarking on a ‘5G Experience Bus’ roadshow, showcasing 5G capabilities through various use cases.
The roadshow will demonstrate how 5G can enhance digital transformation for UAE consumers and businesses.
Saeed Zarouni, senior vice president, Mobile Network, Etisalat said: “Etisalat has set a benchmark with the launch of the first commercial wireless network in MENA, a testimony to our continuous efforts in building a network that will enable innovation and accelerate digital transformation. This is an opportunity to experience the immense potential of 5G and new generation technologies for all customers.”
Etisalat reached a major milestone in May 2018 with its launch of the region’s first commercial 5G network, and all its customers experienced 5G in UAE for this year. Etisalat was also the first telco in the region to enable indoor 5G coverage in an international airport, at the Abu Dhabi Airport.
Companies can witness various real-life IoT use cases enabled by 5G, such as transport, energy, public safety, logistics and entertainment.
Fadi Pharaon, president of Ericsson Middle East and Africa, said: “With Etisalat’s successful 5G launch, 5G is now a reality in the UAE, enabling high speeds, low latency and massive connections to people and businesses. Building on our long-standing partnership with Etisalat we are thrilled to launch our joint 5G Experience Bus to showcase new use cases. Our partner Etisalat is capable of unlocking the potential of 5G for UAE consumers and businesses.”
The ‘5G Experience Bus’ will have multiple stopovers at various locations in UAE. Companies can witness various real-life IoT use cases enabled by 5G, such as transport, energy, public safety, logistics and entertainment focusing on enhancing operational efficiencies and user experiences.
