Aramco signs MoU with Samsung Electronics for 5G networks


Aramco has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., which sets forth preliminary plans for a strategic collaboration that would localise an industrial 5G technology ecosystem in Saudi Arabia, starting with private networks

The proposed collaboration aims to contribute to the digital transformation of various industrial sectors in Saudi Arabia, such as energy, petrochemical, and manufacturing, by leveraging advanced 4G and 5G technologies capable of providing secure, fast and reliable communications to satisfy business-critical requirements of industries.

The companies intend to help realise advanced industrial 5G use cases with mission-critical communications. It follows the recent launch of Aramco Digital Company, which aims to accelerate digital transformation within the Kingdom, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
