According to the information, Etisalat UAE and Huawei successfully completed their first trial of the 6GHz spectrum. The latest 6GHz frequency will make compact changes in coverage and capacity that provide a great environment for 5G connectivity.
The 6GHz range will reduce the need for network densification and make next-generation connectivity more affordable for all.
Khalid Murshed, Chief Technology and Information Officer (CTIO), Etisalat UAE highlighted that 5G allows the industry to support national digital transformation goals by providing reliable, high capacity, low latency, and wide-area connectivity to consumers and industries.
“The metaverse is opening untapped opportunities with hyper-personalised experiences powered by AI. Telcos will be the entry point to the metaverse because of connectivity but also because the customer wants access to a digital world. The future is powered by AI and analytics, with metaverse playing a role yet to be defined. This kind of technology disruption will create challenges but simultaneously bring massive prospects to this dynamic industry,” he said.
Etisalat said that the 6GHz trial will open up future markets for it and influence its next development plans. With a fast network, it will further collaborate with companies such as Meta to realize innovative businesses such as products such as Metaverse, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Extended Reality (XR).
