Ooredoo and Ericsson have signed a partnership agreement at the Mobile World Congress 2022 in Barcelona, Spain to provide offshore enterprise connectivity in Qatar. As part of the five-year partnership, Ericsson will supply and manage the 4G network for the Ooredoo oil and gas enterprise customers at their offshore sites to meet their traffic requirements.

The project will begin in the second quarter of 2022 with Ericsson providing 4G radio solutions from its Ericsson Radio System portfolio with the ability to seamlessly transition to 5G in the future. The 5G-ready Ericsson solutions will modernize the enterprises’ current communication infrastructure to simplify the communication for the Ooredoo oil and gas enterprise customers.

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, deputy group chief executive officer and chief executive officer of Ooredoo Qatar said, “This exciting launch is yet more evidence to consolidate our position as an innovator and trusted provider of customised solutions to support our many industries in Qatar and further afield. We are committed to investing in innovation as a key part of our corporate strategy, and to finding and developing solutions for customer needs across every industry. Working with world-class partners such as Ericsson, we leverage our experience and their technology to ensure the products and services we offer our customers are second to none.”

Fadi Pharaon, president of Ericsson Middle East and Africa said, "Today’s agreement with Ooredoo is an important step that will benefit the oil and gas industry. Ericsson has a strong roadmap and track-record in delivering 5G-ready solutions and we are proud to be Ooredoo’s partner to modernise the networks of the oil and gas industry. We look forward to further our collaboration with Ooredoo in the field of innovative industrial and enterprises cases in Qatar.”

As enterprises across the globe look to digitize their operations and create a more agile infrastructure, Ericsson continues to be an integral partner to communication service providers to help enterprises evolve their networks towards 4G wireless broadband with a clear path toward transitioning into more advanced use cases with 5G.
