Ericsson and Qatar Ooredoo provide artificial intelligence (AI) solutions on the trusted Microsoft cloud in the country. The deployment of Ericsson cognitive software optimizes the 5G user experience and realizes seamless connection.
Ericsson’s new optimization solution uses advanced artificial intelligence technologies such as digital twist technology and deep reinforcement learning to analyze the wireless access network (RAN), actively provide mobile network optimization suggestions and solve specific network performance problems, achieve excellent user experience, and reduce operating costs.
Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Bin Nasser Al Thani, Chief Commercial Officer of Oordoo Qatar, said: “Qatar’s telecommunications industry has made great efforts over the years to reach the peak of this important milestone. We are working with Ericsson to provide the best next-generation 5G connection experience for millions of people. This will enable our customers to enjoy extremely high network speed, low latency and large data capacity.”
Ericsson’s technology and solutions will enable Ooredoo Qatar to provide and promote a large number of use cases based on enhanced mobile broadband, with high network speed, low latency and large data capacity.
