Jebel Ali Free Zone has cooperated with Emirates Telecommunications Group Company (Etisalat) to showcase 5G technology to a group of officials and employees.
The cutting edge technology was demonstrated onboard through an Etisalat-Ericsson co-branded bus for DP World Officials, business leaders, and employees, according to a company statement released on Thursday.
Guests had a firsthand experience of the internet speed test display, 5G connected display, 3D hologram communication, remote vehicle control, along with other industry-specific demonstrations.
“Etisalat has demonstrated promising capabilities through this 5G bus tour and has showcased to the business community in Jafza which is home to over 7,500 companies from 140 countries, how 5G will revolutionise the way we do business,” CEO of Jafza Mohammed Al Muallem said.
The bus tour is a part of a partnership between Jafza and Etisalat aimed at exploration, identification, and development of bespoke applications to transform business activities in the Free Zone.
“Building on our long-standing partnership with DP World, we are pleased to have provided a platform for Jafza officials, business leaders, and employees to experience futuristic 5G use cases and digital transformation first-hand through the 5G experience bus,” group CEO of Etisalat Salvador Anglada commented.
