World's first 5G indoor shareable solution launched by Ooredoo in Qatar
Ooredoo has announced the successful deployment of the world's first 5G indoor shared solution in Qatar, with 1.5Gbps per second speeds. To improve the immersive spectator experience at big sporting events, the 5G Indoor solution has been commercially deployed in stadiums across Qatar.
This indoor-only solution has full band compatibility and 4x4 MIMO capabilities, allowing Ooredoo to provide consumers with a superior indoor 5G experience with speeds exceeding 1Gbps.
The solution effortlessly responds to high-demand customers at important sporting events – such as the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 – that are known for larger volumes of traffic by assuring reliable gigabit performance to end users.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulla al-Thani, CEO of Ooredoo Qatar states that with 5G providing new use cases across the country, indoor connectivity shall play a huge part in realising these prospects and driving new enterprises . The shareable indoor solution gives us a world of options, allowing us to satisfy high-capacity demands and respond to market demands quickly.
Ooredoo is convinced that their collaboration with Ericsson on their 5G Indoor shared solutions will speed up the deployment of indoor networks and provide the best performance possible, allowing them to take advantage of new 5G opportunities and improve their customers' digital experiences.
As part of the five-year partnership, Ericsson will supply and manage the 4G network for the Ooredoo oil and gas enterprise customers at their offshore sites... #Qatar #Ooredoo #Ericsson https://t.co/5x6w2Kc7ri— The Peninsula Qatar (@PeninsulaQatar) March 3, 2022
5G providing new use cases across the country, indoor connectivity will play a major role in realising these prospects and driving new enterprises
At the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021, evidence of the solution's effectiveness and ability to meet the diverse needs of network subscribers, as well as providing high capacity per user with peak speeds of up to 1.5Gbps, was displayed. Ooredoo and Ericsson were able to deploy the solution just weeks before the event due to its flexibility and quick time-to-market.
The technology was also shown at a regional football tournament in Qatar in 2021, when it met the high demands of network subscribers by tackling and delivering high capacity per user at peak speeds of up to 1.5 Gbps. Because of the solution's flexibility and speedy time-to-market, Ooredoo Qatar and Ericsson were able to deploy it just weeks before the event.
Since the Ericsson Radio Dot System is 5G and IoT ready, service providers across the country will be able to take advantage of the potential of indoor connection and deliver seamless 5G experiences.
