The Middle East and Africa region is at the heart of inspiring innovations in technology. It embraces digital advancement and technology for good and in fact, we are already starting to see commercial 5G networks going live in the region. Ericsson is the first with commercial live networks in four continents, with four 5G deals from the Middle East.
It is expected that by 2024, mobile data traffic will increase by a factor of five, of which 25 percent will be carried by 5G networks. 5G technology will not only serve consumers but businesses alike, and will take the Internet of Things (IoT) to the next level.
The network is set to revolutionize how we use and adopt technology. It will not only provide a higher bandwidth, but also a greater capacity, security and more productivity. Reaching to the point where 5G networks can be deployed has been a joint effort between Ericsson and some of the world-leading telecom partners and key stakeholders.
From 5G to IoT to connected vehicles and Industry 4.0, it is all happening right now. And there is no better time to take this technology to the masses, with Ericsson's 5G breakthrough technologies coming to GITEX 2019 in Dubai. Under the Experience 5G theme, Ericsson experts will inspire consumers and enterprises with 5G, its potential and the unlimited possibilities it will bring to us. You can visit Ericsson's booth at GITEX Technology Week between October 6-10 at Dubai World Trade Centre to catch a glimpse of how the future will look like with 5G.
