Huawei conducts 5G workshop in Bahrain

MANAMA, July 15, 2018

Huawei, a leading global provider of ICT solutions, conducted a workshop at Bahrain’s Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications (MTT) to discuss progress and future plans to accelerate the arrival of 5G in the kingdom.

During the workshop, Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications, discussed with An Jian, president of Carrier Network Business Group, Huawei ME, the current state of 5G readiness in the Kingdom, and ways to harness the new game-changing technology to diversify Bahrain’s economy and achieve the goals of its Economic Vision 2030.

The workshop held at MTT came on the heels of a series of workshops carried out in Bahrain this year. Last month, four workshops took place in the Kingdom to discuss challenges and opportunities in 5G wireless communications and 5G-related network evolution.

Key industry leaders delivered keynote speeches and exchanged ideas on a number of the industry’s most pressing challenges, including steps to make Bahrain more network ready for 5G, how to accelerate wireless communication to enable cloud-based wireless networks, and most promising 5G use cases that will help to accelerate achieving the goals of the Kingdom’s national agenda and vision.

Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed said: “We are on the verge of welcoming 5G in the Kingdom, and the arrival and early adoption of this technology will position the Kingdom as a leading player in the region, and help us achieve the goals of our Economic Vision 2030. Our longstanding and valued partnership with Huawei has ensured that Bahrain continues to adopt the latest technologies and infrastructure to boost the Kingdom’s efforts in digital transformation and in building knowledge-based economy.”

An Jian said: “With the anticipated launch of 5G, it is essential for countries in the region to plan and deploy their 5G ready infrastructure to embrace the new technology that is set to disrupt the way we do business. At Huawei, we have been working tirelessly with our partners and local governments to make sure they are on track with 5G development, collaborating with them to nurture ICT talents, and working to build an open ecosystem that will bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world.”

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, Huawei announced it had manufactured the world’s first 3GPP-compliant 5G chipset, and a full range of end-to-end (E2E) 3GPP-compliant 5G product solutions covering the core network, the bearer network, base station, and terminals. The featured products were the only available options within the industry to provide 5G E2E capabilities. – TradeArabia News Service
