Ericsson and Ooredoo Qatar have signed a five-year extension of their 5G deal during Ooredoo Qatar’s visit to Ericsson’s headquarters in Kista, Sweden to increase collaboration on radio access network (RAN) products and services. 

The extension to the partnership was signed by Sheikh Ali Bin Jabor Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, and Kevin Murphy, Vice President and Head of Ericsson Levant Countries and Global Customer Unit Ooredoo Group at Ericsson Middle East and Africa, in the presence of Ooredoo’s Deputy Group CEO, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ericsson Group, Börje Ekholm and a delegation of senior executives from Ooredoo Group, Ooredoo Qatar and Ericsson.

Under the renewed contract, Ericsson will deliver cutting edge 5G RAN solutions and services that enable faster data speeds, allowing Ooredoo Qatar to explore new 5G use cases and connectivity opportunities for subscribers, to leverage the potential of Internet of Things (IoT) applications and exploring emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for optimising network performance and user experience.

Ericsson will also continue supplying indoor small cell solutions (Ericsson Radio Dot System), ensuring seamless connection throughout buildings and providing impressive connectivity experiences indoors in Qatar.

Additionally, Ericsson will enhance Ooredoo Qatar’s 5G customer experiences with the introduction of additional spectrum such as millimeter wave (mmWave). Thanks to Ericsson’s extended range software, mmWave will allow the service provider to deliver exceptional speeds over multi-kilometre distances.
