Ooredoo and Nokia target 5G enterprise market

Qatar-based multinational telecommunications company Ooredoo Group has partnered with Nokia to “upgrade connectivity and drive 5G enterprise innovation”, as the two companies put it.

Specifically, Ooredoo Group has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with global technology giant Nokia to upgrade business connectivity with what are described as cutting-edge 5G solutions.

Under the agreement, both companies will collaborate closely to develop and deploy 5G private networks, delivering innovative market and enterprise-specific solutions customised to meet the diverse needs of businesses across industries.

Ooredoo says its business customers will benefit from high-performance, low-latency 5G connectivity, enhanced IoT capabilities and ultra-reliable communication networks. This will enable them to enhance productivity and efficiency and unlock new opportunities for innovation and growth.

Specific aims of the agreement and a timetable have not yet been offered. However, Najib Khan, Group Chief Business Services Officer at Ooredoo, hints that this is only the start, saying: “This partnership marks the beginning of a collaborative effort to build capabilities and develop a pipeline for future opportunities in the 5G enterprise domain.”

Of course Ooredoo is an international communications company, serving consumers and businesses in ten countries. This may be why Stephan Litjens, Vice President of Enterprise Campus Edge Solutions, Nokia, describes this collaboration with Ooredoo as “another significant milestone for the evolution of 5G in the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia”.
