Etisalat has selected Ericsson to deploy a 5G radio network in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Ericsson 5G network technology will allow Etisalat to offer enhanced mobile broadband and fixed wireless access - among the first 5G use cases - and will provide subscribers with higher throughput and better experiences. For example, new immersive experiences using Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) applications, such as watching a 360° immersive 4K video on VR goggles.
Low-latency 5G technology will also enhance the daily lives of people in the UAE with particular needs. For example, those with hearing impairment can receive voice-to-text transcript on smart glasses using 5G and cloud solutions.
Ericsson’s solution will also enable Etisalat to address industry 4.0 digitalization opportunities by exploring automation, AI and machine learning services for UAE industries, based on 5G capabilities.
