Zain deploys Ericsson AIR 4455 to improve coverage in Manama

30 Mar 2021

Zain Bahrain has selected Ericsson’s dual-band 4T4R AIR 4455 antenna-integrated radio solution to boost 4G and 5G coverage in Manama. The deployment enables 5G through Ericsson Spectrum Sharing to increase capacity and data speeds for users and supports Zain Bahrain’s network operations with a tailored system designed for street macro coverage in dense urban areas. Ericsson AIR 4455 will also provide better data user experience in the city’s shopping centres and markets, thanks to the implementation of Ericsson Elastic Radio Access Network (Elastic-RAN).

Ali Al-Yaham, Director of Technology at Zain Bahrain, commented: ‘We are committed to providing a world-class experience for our customers in Bahrain and the deployment of Ericsson’s street macro solution allows for a minimal additional footprint of our hardware in dense urban areas. In line with Bahrain Economic Vision 2030 and the TRA’s objective, we’re providing world-class 4G and 5G networks and improving our service to customers in busy areas.’
