5g in uae etisalat and ericsson join forces to deploy 5g high-band

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.
