The Middle East and Africa region is no stranger to inspiring innovations in technology – it embraces digital advancement, and technology for good. We are starting to see commercial 5G networks going live in the region. Previous generations of mobile technology were focused on consumer and personal communications but now 5G will serve consumers and businesses alike and take the Internet of Things (IoT) to the next level.

By 2024, volumes of mobile data traffic are expected to increase by a factor of five, and 25 percent of that traffic will be carried by 5G networks. Envisioning that 5G will be the era of IoT, we are first with commercial live networks in four continents. We have publicly announced commercial 5G deals with 24 service providers to date, four of them are from the Middle East.

5G is set to revolutionize how we use and adopt technology and will have a huge impact on businesses and societies in the region. It will bring new opportunities for people, businesses and societies, providing not just higher bandwidth, but also greater capacity, security and more productivity.

Reaching the key technological milestone of deploying 5G networks has been a joint effort - a journey and a collaboration between us and some of the world-leading telecom partners and key stakeholders. Together we have managed to develop 5G technology based on real business needs. And there is no better time to take this technology to the masses. We are happy to bring Ericsson’s 5G breakthrough technologies to GITEX Technology Week 2019 in Dubai.

Under the theme Experience 5G, Ericsson experts will use GITEX 2019 to inspire consumers and enterprise with 5G, its potential and the possibilities it will bring to us as individuals and enterprises.

From 5G to IoT to connected vehicles and Industry 4.0 – it’s all happening, now. To enable our visitors to realize the full potential of these opportunities, we will showcase a wide range of 5G use cases and allow them to experience hands-on demonstrations. In addition, our global and regional experts will be on ground to address and engage with discussions around:

  • How 5G will transform our experience as individuals.
  • Service enablers’ readiness to captures new 5G business opportunities and additional revenue streams.
  • Innovative drivers of 5G & AI in the region.

With so much tech innovation out there, we will also continue our discussion, with leaders in the field, about the latest industry trends, so we explore new collaboration opportunities.

By providing solutions for almost two-thirds of all commercially launched 5G networks spanning across four continents, Ericsson is leading the way for the next generation of connectivity. 

Visit Ericsson at Zabeel Hall, stand Z1-C22, from October 6-10 at Dubai World Trade Centre to catch a glimpse of what the future will look like with 5G.
