Qatar’s leading telecommunications operator has announced the completion of its 5G rollout for Phase 1 of deployment at Hamad Port Container Terminal 2.
The project was commenced in June 2020 in partnership with the terminal’s operator, QTerminals. This milestone means that Hamad Port is the first 5G-enabled seaport in Middle East, powered by Ooredoo.
The completion of Phase 1 rollout was celebrated with a cake-cutting ceremony, attended by Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Bin Nasser Al Thani, Chief Commercial Officer at Ooredoo and Neville Bissett, Group Chief Executive Officer at QTerminals, on 3rd October 2021.
Operation of Ooredoo’s groundbreaking 5G network at Container Terminal 2 covers an area of more than 571,000 square metres, and the two partners are now rolling out actual 5G use cases that leverage the phenomenal capabilities of 5G to increase the benefits the terminal offers its customers.
Key operations at Container Terminal 2 will now benefit from ultra-fast speed, low latency and real time-data that can be used for remote crane and rubber-tyred gantry operations, connected assets, remote inspection and maintenance, data centre connectivity, and much more.
