Ooredoo declares MEA ‘initially’ with personal LTE release for overseas oil-and-gas

Qatari mobile operator Ooredoo has actually released a personal LTE network from Nokia for the oil and gas market, covering offshore and onshore operations. In a press declaration, Finnish supplier Nokia called it the “very first” personal cellular network in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) area “for the energy sector”, and stated it will cover an “preliminary capability” of 20,000 customers on the overseas grid, and change “older” Wi-Fi and WiMAX innovations.

Strangely enough, Ooredoo stated 18 months ago it was dealing with Nokia, plus Swedish competing Ericsson, to release a “devoted LTE network for the oil and gas market”, explaining it at the time as “an initially for Qatar”, likewise. The brand-new Nokia statement in fact makes no referral to LTE, nor to 5G, simply calling it a “personal cordless network”. So something does not build up; reasoning and presumption states it is a brand-new LTE job, nevertheless.

There is no referral to the oil and gas client, either.

Nokia stated in a declaration: “The first-of-its-kind job will offer devoted voice and client information services in the most remote and tough places.

The Ooredoo press statement from 18 months ago noises incredibly comparable, recommending the brand-new Nokia release represents either the last stage of the preliminary Nokia/Ericsson experiment, with the Swedish supplier dropping from the job in between times, or that Ericsson is preparing a parallel release and there are twin personal network tasks in play, which will usually adjoin, however might serve various functions.

The statement from March 2022 states: “In a very first for Qatar, the brand-new LTE network will be committed to keeping connection and supporting clients’ information and voice call requires in remote, tough places such as overseas centers.
