According to the latest report released by the Global Association for mobile communication systems, there will be nearly 500000 mobile users in the Gulf countries in 2019; by the end of 2023, this number will reach 21.86 million, accounting for 21.2% of the total number of mobile users in the region; by 2025, more than 16% of the communication data within the GCC Member States is expected to be transmitted through 5g network.

It is understood that at present, the GCC member states have deployed 5g network facilities on a large scale and started commercial use. Huawei and other Chinese enterprises actively participated.

At present, 5g technology has greatly helped Gulf countries to prevent and control the epidemic. Huawei and Saudi Arabias Medina Development Bureau have carried out fruitful cooperation on the application of 5g technology in the anti epidemic front line. Huawei donated several products and solutions based on 5g technology, artificial intelligence and cloud technology to Medina, and installed temperature monitoring cameras for many hospitals and key universities. Multiple AI cameras are used to monitor the flow of people and prevent people from gathering. 5g technology is a good helper for us to fight the epidemic. According to Ibrahim jarudi, head of the Medina Development Bureau.

In Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates, dozens of self driving vehicles with the size of ice cream cabinets and the striking words please stay at home shuttle through densely populated communities, distributing anti epidemic materials such as masks, gloves and disinfectants to the people in need. This is the result of cooperation between Huawei and Shajia health department based on 5g technology. The application of 5g smart car greatly reduces the risk of infection of medical staff, and saves the precious time of distributing articles, so that medical staff can devote more energy to treating patients. Amin Emiri, an official with the UAE Ministry of health and prevention, said.

During the period of epidemic prevention and control, dozens of vans printed with Kuwait National Bank appeared in Kuwait City, the capital of Kuwait. These vehicles park in turn on important streets of the city every day. Customers can not only access cash through the ATM in the car, but also conduct business through video dialogue with the bank account manager. All customers are automatically tested for their body temperature before receiving service, and they can get masks and gloves from ATM machines for free, which greatly reduces the risk of infection.

Deloitte and Huawei recently jointly released a research report, saying that multinational countries in the Gulf region have established an information-based, intelligent, innovative public emergency system platform based on cloud technology and big data based on the characteristics of high-speed transmission, high reliability and low delay of 5g technology, which will provide basic conditions for innovation in multi-technology fields and business models after the end of the epidemic.
