Ooredoo Qatar announced that it has successfully conducted tests on one of the first-ever 5G trial systems in the middle east, in partnership with Huawei and Nokia. During the trials, Ooredoo showcased speeds of up to 35.46Gbps.

The Operator also plans to run a number of applications on the trial 5G system, including a demonstration of next-generation virtual reality and robotic applications. In addition, the results from Ooredoo’s trials will be shared with global partners, to contribute to the international agreements on standards and spectrum that will be necessary to support the global launch of 5G services.

Ooredoo said that the trial results will also help the development of 5G-ready equipment and devices. However, the full commercial launch of 5G services from Ooredoo is still some time away, since 5G-ready devices and technology are not available anywhere in the world today.

At the same time, Ooredoo Qatar has also achieved speeds of up to 1 Gbps in a recent 4.5G Pro trial using Nokia's three-carrier aggregation technique, 256 QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) and 4x4 Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MIMO) with Nokia's 5G-ready AirScale radio platform.

Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Qatar
Ooredoo worked hard to complete this important technological breakthrough ahead of our country’s celebrations for Qatar National Day, so that we could share this remarkable achievement with our people and the world. Qatar continues to break new ground in the technology and services we are making available for our people, and Ooredoo is proud to be playing its part as a data experience leader, offering the best networks and services for our customers.
