Omantel to tie up with Ericsson to support 5G RAN deployment plans

Oman’s first telecommunications company, Omantel, has reportedly announced that it has decided to join forces with Ericsson for supporting its current 5G radio access network (RAN) deployment plans.

According to Samy Ahmed Al Ghassany, the Chief Operating Officer at Omantel, the company is constantly working towards enhancing the digital lives of people, businesses, and industries in Oman through the use of latest technology. He has further stated that the deployment of 5G will help Oman to emerge as a leader in digitalization and help the economy in transforming both, industry and infrastructure, making the next generation of possibilities a reality. Omantel values its long-established relationship with Ericsson and eagerly looks ahead to further cooperation in the 5G era, added Ghassany.

Omantel will also gain access to Ericsson’s low-latency and high-speed 5G technology that will allow the company to meet the growing data traffic demands and deliver high-quality fixed wireless access. Further, subscribers will be able to enjoy low latency and high speeds of over 1Gbps in user experiences such as gaming, downloading, infotainment, streaming, and interactivity.
