Ooredoo sees big trend for My-Fi use in 2018

Enterprises enabling mobile workforces will be the biggest trend for 2018, driving strong take-up of Mobile Wi-Fi (My-Fi) devices, Ooredoo has said.

Increasingly, Qatar’s organisations – from small businesses to medium-sized enterprises – are adopting Ooredoo My-Fi devices to enable their employees to work while on 

the go.

With a mobile data SIM card, My-Fi devices act as Wi-Fi hotspots for up to 15 mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Using mobile data, My-Fi devices can provide faster download speeds compared to Wi-Fi and allow easy file-sharing between devices.

“Qatar is a major hub in the global economy, with workers increasingly needing to work while off-site on mega-projects, in transit, and while travelling abroad. As a result, enabling mobile workforces will be the biggest business trend for Qatar’s organisations in 2018,” said Yousuf al-Kubaisi, COO, Ooreoo Qatar. 

Businesses purchasing mobile devices are a major driver of the global mobile device spend, set to reach $627bn by 2019, according to a recent report by research firm Gartner.

“Qatar’s organisations that want to become mobile-first should begin their digital transformation now. CIOs should work with an experienced partner, like Ooredoo, for enterprise-wide mobility, especially for supporting Millennials who prefer mobile devices,” added al-Kubaisi.

Helping organisations to easily adopt My-Fi devices, Ooredoo Business customers can purchase selected devices through their account manager and pay with their Ooredoo bill.

“Qatar’s businesses customers can leverage the Ooredoo Advantage, making Ooredoo “Best for Business”, thanks to its breadth and depth of talent, best fixed and mobile networks, broadest portfolio of ICT services and solutions, and trusted partner for 60 years,” Ooredoo said in a statement.

In Qatar, Ooredoo is “seeing strong demand” for My-Fi devices such as the Huawei Prime, one of the most powerful and smallest at only 7.5mm thick and 58mm wide; the Huawei E5786, which supports super-fast download speeds of up to 300Mbps; and the Netgear AirCard 790S, with up to 300Mbps download speed and a long-lasting battery.
