Orange Jordan held a new 5G pilot at the Innovation Hub, located at the Orange Digital Village in Abdali, as a continuation of its first 5G pilot in the Kingdom launched in the Orange Boulevard shop.
Chairman/CEO of the Telecommunications Regulation Commission (TRC), Eng. Bassam Sarhan, members of the TRC board of commissioners, partners, and media attended the event, as well as the CEO of Orange Jordan, Thierry Marigny, and a number of the company’s executives.
The pilot granted participants the opportunity to live the 5G experience firsthand, visiting Petra and enjoying football games with virtual reality, in addition to other simulations and speed tests.
Orange Jordan’s 5G pilot comes after signing an agreement with TRC to pave the way for the introduction of the new technology in the Kingdom.
CEO of Orange Jordan, Thierry Marigny, said that the pilot is part of the preparations for what reality can become with 5G technology and its transformational impact on several use cases, noting that Orange Jordan seeks to introduce the cutting-edge technology by enabling people to experience it themselves.
Marigny added: “Orange launched the 5G lab to be an open, collaborative space for everyone, especially entrepreneurs and project owners, to explore the uses of this technology. Then, we launched the first 5G pilot in Jordan in the Boulevard shop and now in the Innovation Hub to continue enriching digital experiences and keep everyone connected to what matters to them”.
Marigny thanked TRC for their efforts in supporting the ICT sector and said he is happy that Orange Jordan is the first to launch the pilot of 5G, a technology that will enable massive developments thanks to its unprecedented features, mainly low latency, and high speed, which will drive uses of AI, AR, and VR, enhancing experiences of individuals and sectors such as agriculture and transportation.
