With the aid of the 5G spectrum’s mmWave, the Fixed Wireless Access is quite eased up as well as it offers better spectrum as well as competence.

The Etisalat had joined up the intensities of the Ericsson for the positioning of a 5G millimetre wave (mmWave) across their commercial networks. The 5G higher-band width commercial deployed force will aid in accomplishment of superior performance 5G Downlink data speeds that supports up to 4.2 Gbps as well as the latency limit of 8 Milliseconds (MS).

The UAE leadership is a powerful force in fast-tracking the digital vision along with the telecom regulatory authority TDRA (Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority) fetching one of the initial ones to allot the mmWave spectrum to be utilized for 5G technology positioning across the nation.

5G mmWave offers out a superior spectrum and dimensions, creating out an ideal tool for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) to distribute swifter, fiber-like internet rapidity wirelessly over the last mile, and for swarming hotspots like that in the stadiums, malls and huge indoor events that necessitate superior peak rates. It also comprises extensive spectrum segments accessible for 5G along with lower latencies.

Etisalat has assembled a 5G network infrastructure that can be empowered with superior performance, including ultra-high speeds and ultra-low latency to empower the digital revolution in the nation and the extensive implementation of utilized cases associated to industry 4.0, automation and Internet of Things (IoT).

The 5G standardization turns on the spotlight for certain necessities to offer connectivity for superior services, such as boosted mobile broadband to smartphones and other mobile gadgets for video streaming and real-time online gaming, as these have extreme necessities on availability, latency, and reliability.

The Chief Technology Officer, at Etisalat, Haitham AbdulRazzak, stated out that, “Etisalat has always been at the forefront of the telecom industry, and we continuously work to provide our customers with the best possible digital experience. This deployment is in line with our overall vision to ‘Drive the digital future to empower societies’ empowering our customer with the experience of ultrahigh quality 5G connectivity. Moving ahead we look forward to expanding this technology further on demand for all customer segments.”

The Senior Vice-President of Mobile Networks at Etisalat, Saeed Alzarouni, stated out that; “We are proud to have introduced 5G mmWave as part of the UAE’s digital infrastructure. Etisalat is always working towards providing the best and ensuring the latest technology is available to all our customers. The partnership with Ericsson is a key milestone in our 5G journey that will support the automation and massive bandwidth demands of futuristic technologies and advanced use cases.”

The Vice President as well as global head of the Customer Unit at Etisalat at the Ericsson’s Middle East and Africa, Ekow Nelson, stated that; “We look forward to supporting Etisalat in harnessing the opportunities that new technologies like 5G can present for the people of the UAE. In combination with established solutions, such as Fixed Wireless Access, largely untapped mmWave frequencies can help meet the increased demands for high-quality connectivity while facilitating exciting use cases from advanced video streaming and online gaming with augmented and virtual reality experiences to industrial IoT and smart factories.”

In response, 5G radio frequency arrays were amplified to meet the prerequisite for boosted mobile broadband and operation. The 5G radio frequencies now include all those beforehand apprehended by 4G, as well as more frequencies up to 6GHz (Sub-6) and the better-band (mmWave) spectrum beyond 24GHz.

The forthcoming wave of 5G expansion will permit dealings of all types to reap the assistances of boosted mobility, flexibility, reliability and security, making emerging technologies edged for the future progress of the UAE such as autonomous driving, automated factories, robotic process automation, virtual and amplified reality possible.
