The Sultanate of Oman, an Arab country located on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, has chosen Swedish telecommunications equipment provider Ericsson to support its ongoing 5G radio access network deployment over the next few years.

In a statement, the company said hardware and software from its radio system portfolio, including Advanced Antenna Systems and 3GPP standards-based 5G New Radio, would be used in Omantel's network and the company added it would support Omantel's commercial 5G deployment in key regions such as Salalah, Nizwa and Sur.

Oman shares shares land borders with the United Arab Emirates to the northwest, Saudi Arabia to the west, and Yemen to the southwest, and shares marine borders with Iran and Pakistan.

Engineer Samy Ahmed Al Ghassany, chief operating officer of Omantel, said: “We are constantly working to enhance the digital lives of people, enterprises and industries in Oman through the latest technology available.

"The deployment of 5G will enable Oman to be at the forefront of digitalisation, helping us transform both industry and infrastructure and turn the next generation of possibilities into reality. We value our longstanding relationship with Ericsson and their engagement during the 5G trials over the last three years. We are looking forward to further co-operation in the 5G era.”

Fadi Pharaon, president of Ericsson Middle East and Africa, said: “We are delighted to further strengthen our relationship with Omantel to bring the best possible commercial 5G experience to their customers.

"Ericsson is leading the way in terms of 5G deployments across the globe and we look forward to making 5G experiences a reality in the Sultanate.

"Through this ground-breaking technology, many 5G use cases will emerge for people as well as industries with examples such as fixed wireless access enabling individuals and enterprises in Oman to enjoy extremely low latency and ultra-high-speed broadband, supporting home and business applications and for industries such as wirelessly operated harbours and mines.”
