Soon, all owners of 5G-enabled devices will be able to enjoy increased speeds and lower latency because Etisalat, UAE-based multinational telecom services operator, has joined forces with Ericsson, Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company, to deploy 5G in UAE through millimeter wave (mmWave) small cell networks.

Once deployed, the network should be able to provide fiber-like speeds over the air, delivering data speeds of 4.2 Gbps and latency of 8 milliseconds (ms). Because 5G networks can support a greater number of connected devices than 4G networks, UAE residents can look forward to problem-free internet access even in crowded places, such as malls and stadiums.

“Etisalat has always been at the forefront of the telecom industry, and we continuously work to provide our customers with the best possible digital experience,” said Haitham AbdulRazzak, Chief Technology Officer at Etisalat.

“We look forward to supporting Etisalat in harnessing the opportunities that new technologies like 5G can present for the people of the UAE,” added Ekow Nelson, Vice President and Head of Global Customer Unit Etisalat at Ericsson MENA, in the official press release.

5G technology is positioned to become a key enabler of the UAE Vision 2021, which was launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to transition the country to a knowledge-based economy, promoting innovation and research and development.

All businesses that depend on reliable, secure, and fast internet connectivity will be able to reap its benefits to support remote workers, implement innovative Internet of Things solutions, and deliver immersive experiences to their customers.

5G connectivity additionally paves the way for smart cities, which can be imagined as pulsing digital ecosystems where countless sensors collect data to manage resources and infrastructure more efficiently. 5G will hopefully take the United Arab Emirates to another level of connectivity and innovation.

Facebook has announced that it wants to create 10,000 jobs in the European Union (EU) to build its metaverse, a virtual reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users.

The concept of the metaverse can be traced to Neal Stephenson’s 1992 cyberpunk novel Snow Crash. In the novel, the metaverse is a virtual shared space that appears to its users as an urban environment. This space is accessed through personal terminals connected to virtual reality goggles.

Sound familiar? That’s because the metaverse is quickly becoming a reality thanks to companies like Oculus, a subsidiary of Facebook, and the combined effort of developers and content creators from around the world.

By creating thousands of new high-skilled jobs within the EU over the next five years, Facebook wants to accelerate the development of the metaverse to usher in a new phase of interconnected virtual experiences, enabled by technologies like virtual and augmented reality.

“At its heart is the idea that by creating a greater sense of ‘virtual presence,’ interacting online can become much closer to the experience of interacting in person,” said Nick Clegg, Facebook’s vice-president of global affairs. “The metaverse has the potential to help unlock access to new creative, social and economic opportunities”.

According to the official announcement, Facebook decided to invest in the EU because the company believes that European talent is world-leading, supported by first-class universities. Facebook also mentioned the role European policymakers are playing in shaping the internet, so it’s likely that the investment has a political dimension to it.

Aware of its tarnished reputation, the social media giant stressed that no single company would own and operate the metaverse — just like no single company owns the internet today. Of course, that doesn’t change anything about the fact that Facebook wants to play a huge role in it.

Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg told his employees that Facebook is becoming a metaverse company with the goal of building a set of connected social apps and supporting hardware. The recently released Horizon Workrooms remote collaboration app for the Oculus Quest 2 headset can be seen as an early piece of the much larger puzzle the metaverse will become in the future.
