Orange Jordan has entered into a strategic partnership with Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) to establish a dedicated fifth-generation (5G) cellular network exclusively for ACT. This move is aimed at meeting ACT's specific operational needs and business requirements while providing access to the latest technological solutions, leveraging Orange's global expertise.
With this landmark agreement, Orange Jordan becomes the pioneer in providing cutting-edge 5G communication services within the Kingdom of Jordan and the broader Orange Group in the Middle East and Africa. This initiative follows Orange Jordan's successful launch of 5G technology earlier this year, in July.
The deployment of this high-speed 5G network in the Aqaba region is expected to significantly enhance the attractiveness and competitiveness of the port area. Additionally, it will offer unprecedented service quality to Aqaba Container Terminal, situated in the industrial port zone. This new infrastructure will also pave the way for innovation and the development of tailored use cases to meet the terminal's unique requirements.
Beyond its immediate impact, this collaboration is anticipated to drive economic growth in the region, positioning itself as a compelling magnet for valuable investments.
