In the coming years, the technology will enable further use cases, such as ultra-reliable low latency and massive/industrial IoT use cases for a variety of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas (O&G), utilities, healthcare, and retail. The announcement reinforces du’s commitment to pushing the UAE’s digital transformation agenda and providing the fastest mobile network in the country to all industries. Furthermore, independent mobile benchmarking reports have validated du’s mobile network’s unique position in terms of mean throughput for the months of September and October 2021.
