ITC launches 5G standalone network for enterprise customers
  • ITC is the first operator in the Kingdom to launch a 5G standalone (SA) network
  • Aims to provide cutting-edge fixed wireless access (FWA) services to enterprise customers

Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), a provider of telecom and ICT services, has soft-launched its 5G wireless network service in Saudi Arabia, with the aim of providing cutting-edge fixed wireless access (FWA) services to enterprise customers.

ITC is the first operator in the Kingdom to launch a 5G standalone (SA) network — the latest version of 5G, which works fully on a 5G core network without the use of any legacy (4G or earlier) technologies. Essentially, it is pure 5G end-to-end.

The launch is part of ITC’s commitment to the digital transformation of industry verticals such as oil and gas, education, healthcare, IoT, gaming, and entertainment in the Kingdom. ITC has a wider deployment plan of FWA services across the Kingdom, delivered in stages, with various new services and applications.

“This new service is another milestone for ITC to address growing market demand in areas that lack fiber coverage and lead in a new generation of service offerings enabled by 5G,” said Osama Al-Dosary, CEO of ITC.

He added: “We appreciate the enablement the CITC has given for this initiative, which is in line with the Kingdom’s digital transformation and increasing internet coverage objectives, moving us closer toward the realization of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.”
