Ooredoo Group has revealed that it will partner with Chinese network equipment vendor, Huawei, when it launches 5G in five markets across the world.

Ooredoo Group will launch its 5G networks in Kuwait, Oman, Indonesia, Tunisia and the Maldives using Huawei’s network technology.

“Our partnership with Ooredoo aims to enrich people’s digital life in these five countries through our latest 5G innovation. 5G promises rich innovative services for the customers and provides more business opportunities to accelerate the digitization of industries. Huawei will continue to support Ooredoo to build a world-class infrastructure,” said Saif Wang, president of key account Ooredoo at Huawei.

Ooredoo already provides 5G services in Oman and Kuwait, where it will scale up its networks using Huawei’s hardware. The international telco has not yet specified when it will launch 5G in Indonesia, Tunisia or the Maldives.

“With Huawei’s leading 5G network solution, we will be able to improve our network’s operation efficiency and provide limitless opportunities to our customers. Users will enjoy a more streamlined and personalised experience and businesses will be empowered to develop the smart, connected cities of the future,” said Waleed Al Sayed, deputy group chief executive officer at Ooredoo.

Ooredoo will utilise Huawei’s 5G SingleRAN radio solution with advanced Massive MIMO technology, and its 5G Cloud Core solution, which offers a convergent platform to achieve full digital transformation and modernisation of its existing mobile network infrastructure.
