As Ooredoo pushes itself hard to position itself as a data experience leader, it is showcasing its next-generation solutions and services at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. Sheikh Saud Bin Nasser Al Thani, group CEO, Ooredoo Group, said: "The Mobile World Congress is one of the biggest events in the industry calendar and a chance for us to showcase our solutions as well as collaborate with a host of companies from around the world."

Ooredoo will take visitors to its booth on a journey from the days of voice and text through to the super-connected era of 4.5G and 5G . Using a special video demonstration of 5G-enabled robotics, Ooredoo is also showcasing the potential for Internet of Things applications, with the reduced latency and high-speed 5G network.

Ooredoo will also premier its 'Ooredoo Rescue' concept. Using pioneering drone technology Ooredoo aims to enable Coast Guards to respond faster and more accurately to emergencies by providing a live video feed of the situation remotely and deploying an emergency raft via the drone.

The pavilion of Ooredoo also includes a section focused on smart sports venue management. One of the highlights in this area will be Ooredoo smart stadium.

Other highlights include smart city and IoT solutions, content innovation services, and security solutions among others.
