Etisalat to work on 5G with Huawei

Etisalat is working on 5G

Middle Eastern operator group Etisalat has signed a series of agreements with Huawei that will see the two companies deepen their cooperation in developing 5G telecom broadband services over the next five years.

A joint team will be set up to conduct the trial of 5G services, which are anticipated to be the first ever trials of their kind across the MENA region, the companies said.

By 2020, it is estimated that 6.5 billion people worldwide will use mobile networks for data communications and that 100 billion additional ‘things’, such as vehicles, meters, medical devices, and home appliances, will also be connected via broadband networks.

Etisalat and Huawei also agreed to work together to trial ultra-fast fibre services, including a 40Gbps network that will eventually provide the increased speed and bandwidth required for services including voice over IP and IPTV going directly to the premises of the home and business users.

The 5G World Summit will be collocated with the LTE World Summit, taking place on the 23rd-26th June 2014, at the Amsterdam RAI, Netherlands. Click here to download a brochure for the event.
