Abu Dhabi’s new international airport, the Midfield Terminal Building (MTB), will become the first airport terminal in Middle East to benefit from 5G.
The deployment is based on C-Band, delivering gigabit per second download speeds. This achievement has been enabled by collaboration between Etisalat and Abu Dhabi Airports to deliver the 5G network at the MTB before its official opening.
Bryan Thompson, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “We value our customers first and foremost, and access to fast cellular service is a crucial factor that makes a big difference for travellers from around the world.”
He added: “Technology is at the heart of our digital transformation strategy, and providing our customers with enhanced connectively services at the Midfield Terminal Building is in line with our vision of becoming the world’s leading airports group.”
