China’s Huawei to help provide 5G to KSA

China’s global telecommunication company Huawei will provide its expertise to provide Saudi Arabia with 5G after the kingdom’s telecom entity ties up with the Chinese giant on a five-year plan.

The plan dubbed Network 2023 will enable Huawei “to assist Mobily with its 4.5G to 5G evolution, and its target network planning (including spectrum and user experience).”

The Chinese firm as per the tie-up signed in Shenzhen, will also act as Mobily’s consultant from an industry and consumer perspective, offering market and business insights and strategy, Trade Arabia reports.

Through the collaboration, both companies will combine end-to-end (E2E) services and products and excellence customer services with which to create new digital services and revenue streams, enhance operational efficiency, reduce costs, decrease time-to-market, and increase Mobily’s customer base, the Bahraini media says.
