Zain KSA and Huawei released the joint innovation achievement on the first 5G LAN network in Middle East and North Africa.
This means Zain KSA is capable of commercial deployment and large-scale replication of 5G private networks, so it can bring more diversified digital services to the local 5GtoB market, says Huawei in a news statement.
5G LAN enables the application of 5G in vertical industries. 5G LAN neglects the requirement for ARs and can help customers achieve seamless 5G network convergence without changing the network topology, configurations, and applications. 5G LAN enables a simplified network architecture, efficient deployment, and centralized network O&M.
Zain KSA and Huawei exchanged ideas on the joint innovation plan. Zain KSA and Huawei are planning to promote the maturity of 5G LAN and MEC technologies and develop replicable scenario-based solutions, so as to bring a high-quality experience and innovative services to enterprises.
“We will focus on exploring the new technology capability, such as 5G LAN, backed by our partnerships with the tech leader Huawei, to achieve our objectives in promoting economic growth and sustainable development, in line with Saudi Vision 2030,” Zain KSA’s CTO Abdulrahman bin Hamad AlMufadda said in a news statement.
