In cooperation with the Global Certification Forum (GCF), Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC) has hosted the second annual GCF 5G MENA workshop under the theme: ‘Building a 5G world’. Held at the Sheraton Hotel, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai, the exclusive one-day forum was officially opened by Jasim AlAwadi, Senior Vice President - Service Operations, EITC, and explored how regulators, network operators, manufacturers, and industries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region are using and developing 5G in innovative ways.

The event was attended by operators, vendors, companies from the testing industry, the Standardisation bodies at GCF GSMA, and regulators from the region to discuss and understand how 5G can enable new business opportunities beyond traditional services. Participants also engaged in discourse surrounding the importance of standards and interoperability towards supporting 5G developments.
