Ooredoo showcased its new mobile network solution to 45,000 attendees at Khalifa Stadium on the occasion of the final match of the Emir Cup football tournament.
The speeds achieved with the latest 4G advanced centralised RAN mobile technologies were up to 40% faster than the current technologies. These will also form the basis of the technologies to be deployed by all stadia during the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Ooredoo is actively working on its Smart Stadium offering, a centralised solution for stadium management that controls security, connectivity, identity management, and access control, enabling teams to effectively manage large-scale events using enhanced predictive models, business intelligence, and real-time monitoring.
Qatar’s stadia of the future will allow mobile device-enabled fans to connect to intelligent antennae that will possibly make every seat in the stadium “the best seat in the house”.
“Ooredoo has the smart stadium technology to create a truly outstanding FIFA World Cup 2022 visitor experience. Qatar will proudly host the world’s most technologically-advanced World Cup tournament,” said Yousuf Al Kubaisi, chief operating officer, Ooredoo Qatar.
Al Kubaisi added that Ooredoo’s stadium technology solutions will provide high capacity and high speed internet that is demanded by the fans of today and expected from the fans of tomorrow.
