Ericsson hosted a Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRA) delegation at its headquarters in Sweden to highlight global best practices and outline how 5G will foster new business and market opportunities in Oman.
A key aim of the event was to share information about Sweden’s regulatory authority as well as shed light on next-generation technologies and Ericsson services. Mohammed al Kindy, vice president, Regulatory and Compliance at TRA said, “The main focus of our ICT development is to accelerate digitalisation as well as to create a healthy ecosystem to support the growth of 5G. In this way, we contribute to realising the government’s Vision 2040 to transform the country. Initiatives such as Ericsson’s 5G showcase will power innovations and help transform technology infrastructure in Oman, bringing more opportunities to people, business and society.”
A senior official at Ericsson said, “By the end of 2025, we expect 5G to have 2.6bn subscriptions covering up to 65 percent of the world’s population. Meanwhile, consumers will be able to enjoy new applications like augmented reality and 4K video streaming and industries will benefit from innovative IoT applications such as smart transport and remote healthcare, creating significant opportunities. With 5G rollout under way in most countries in the GCC, Ericsson sees the need to support the government, telecom operators and industries in Oman to prepare for the launch of this next-generation technology.”
