Nokia has a long history since its inception in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a leading supplier of global networking technology. Since 2001, Nokia has started working with telecom service operators in the Kingdom to ensure that they provide the best possible network performance so that Saudi subscribers enjoy a distinctive experience when using voice services, data and video applications.Engineer Khaled Hussein, Director of Nokia’s branch in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia stated, “Nokia is part of the societies in the countries in which it operates, and Saudi Arabia is our largest market in the Middle East and Africa. From this standpoint, the Kingdom – with Nokia – is of great importance, and we We are committed to harnessing and providing the latest technical means, especially 5G technologies, to build a strong, solid and solid digital infrastructure. We are distinguished at Nokia by the diversity of our technologies for comprehensive networks in order to ensure the ability of these technologies to compete and accelerate the comprehensive digital transformation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in accordance with the Kingdom’s 2030 vision. The world has definitely changed today. The technologies that allow everyone and everything to stay connected anywhere in the world have never been so important. After the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, the level of online communication witnessed in a few weeks an unprecedented growth in the world, exceeding what we usually see in a whole year.
Covid-19 and the immediate response from Nokia
In Saudi Arabia, pressure on networks increased by 30 percent in March compared to February, due to the use of video applications that rely heavily on data. In addition to the escalating demand for electronic games that exceeded six times the usual turnout, and a similar trend emerged with the business sector adopting various applications and programs to maintain remote communication in commercial activities during the same period. In order to meet this high turnout, reliable, secure and reliable networks were required. In addition to the necessity to provide fast networks with higher capabilities and capacities so that subscribers feel the actual value that we provide them. More importantly, it has become necessary for companies and operators of telecommunications services to apply artificial intelligence systems in their network system so that individuals and businesses can achieve tangible productivity, and they can use these ingredients to provide new, innovative and unprecedented competitive services, establish partnerships and create new business models. Nokia’s teams in Saudi Arabia, in cooperation with the company’s global experience centers, have succeeded in harnessing great efforts during the pandemic to monitor the system of network performance of telecommunications service providers and take all necessary measures to face the expected risks and obstacles in order to ensure the continuity of service performance while facing the increasing pressure on networks. We culminated in all this by complying with the requirements of all the preventive systems and regulations imposed by the government and regulators.
Comprehensive network technologies from Nokia

5G technology from Nokia in Saudi Arabia
Based on the comprehensive 5G technology group, Nokia has successfully deployed 5G technologies that it has developed for three telecom companies, namely Saudi Telecom Company (STC), Zain and Mobily. 5G networks are already operational, and fixed wireless communication (FWA) systems in homes and businesses are as fast as optical fibers and are reliable in places where there is no or limited fiber optic infrastructure. Eng Khaled adds: “5G technologies allow enjoying technical means such as merging experiences through augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). When these technical means reach their peak and the headphones used with virtual reality technology become more available, the field will witness a shift in how Saudi consumers have access to digital content that interests them. In addition, with the high response speed and maximum capacity of the broadband provided by 5G networks, telecommunications companies will have a wide range of opportunities to enhance their current services. For example, Nokia has succeeded with Zain Saudi Arabia in introducing an advanced use of virtual reality technology based on 5G technologies in the Holy Places and the Grand Mosque in Makkah, so that pilgrims can experience the rituals of Hajj. This technology allowed visitors to coexist from a distance as if they were on the same pilgrimage site. Also, in cooperation with STC, Nokia has made communications to transfer a holographic hologram image based on 5G technologies to provide educational and awareness services to pilgrims about the rituals of Hajj. Engineer Khaled confirms, “We also expect that 5G technologies will have a role in cloud robotic systems and automation, and that the future will witness an increase in the use of automation in logistics, industry, energy and mines. 5G technologies will also allow a range of uses in the fields of e-health, especially monitoring Wearable medical devices, providing remote medical services, transporting patients, and providing medical services in remote and hard-to-reach areas.All these various cases of use contribute to building smart Saudi cities and play a very important role in managing events that include huge crowds such as Hajj and pay The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is moving forward and this in turn enhances productivity. ”
An agreement with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology to launch the Research and Development Unit
Nokia has entered into an agreement with the Saudi Ministry of Communications and Information Technology to launch a research and development unit of Nokia in an effort to develop software in the Kingdom. This joint cooperation aims to establish a software development unit for Nokia and a research unit at Bell Labs in the Kingdom. Nokia’s Bell Labs is an innovation center that aims to find solutions to the most fundamental technical challenges, enabling them to solve problems that they may encounter over the next ten years, using the “future-based planning” approach. The partnership that Nokia enjoys today with telecom service providers and the Saudi Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) contributes to enhancing the role of the ICT sector in building a society, government and digital economy within the Kingdom. Engineer Khaled concluded his speech by saying: “With the technical developments that we are making year after year and our continuous participation with the various actors in the Saudi technical scene, we are very excited about the opportunities for cooperation in the Saudi market and we look forward to assuming an increasingly important role in the digital agenda adopted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
