Etisalat by e& UAE has completed a successful trial of 5G network capability across multiple locations for an oil & gas corporation. The aim of the trial was to provide globally certified solutions and demonstrate the ability of 5G networks to handle enterprise traffic and facilitate faster transfer of data in real-time. This development will play a key role in the region’s economic growth, with the potential to impact other sectors such as public safety, healthcare, and manufacturing. The trial was conducted at multiple locations in order to simulate a comprehensive overall picture of how the network would work under normal circumstances. The impressive results achieved during this test are expected to open up new possibilities for applications that were previously not possible due to lack of suitable technology or resources. Moreover, etisalat by e& is currently working on 5G Advance with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Extended Reality (XR) capabilities to enable more use cases than ever before. Machine-learning-based techniques are being used in order to improve service offerings and create a greener network. This will undoubtedly lead to better user experience and enhanced network efficiency which can further improve operations for various sectors like oil & gas industry.
