Ooredoo will demonstrate the power and potential of a wide range of next-generation smart ICT solutions at the 2016 Olympic Games, which began in Rio de Janeiro this Friday. The company, which is a National Sponsor of the Qatar Olympic Committee, is hosting a solutions booth inside Bayt Qatar, the QOC’s Olympic hospitality house that will share Qatar’s culture, heritage and sporting passion with visitors to the 2016 Games.

At the booth, visitors will be able to preview the incredible next-generation immersive media that Qatar will provide at future sporting events, as well as enjoying videos and presentations about the nation’s world-class sporting and technology infrastructure. In addition, visitors will be introduced to Ooredoo’s drive to build the Smart Cities of the future, supported by world-class Smart Data Centres and ICT systems integration capabilities. Ooredoo representatives will look to build relationships with key stakeholders from around the world during the exhibition, emphasising its position as a leading integrated ICT provider.

Waleed Al-Sayed, Chief Executive Officer, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “We’re very proud to be working with the Qatar Olympic Committee to demonstrate Qatar’s credentials as an advanced destination for global sports events. Ooredoo’s services, systems and solutions are set to deliver a next-generation customer experience for fans and visitors, and the Rio Olympics 2016 provides an ideal platform for us to promote our expertise.”

Ooredoo is set to deploy the Ooredoo Supernet to support immersive media at a range of sporting events in the future. Fans will be able to use their mobile devices to watch live replays from multiple angles, check the latest stats and enjoy a fully-interactive experience – wherever they are in the stadium or even when they are outside or at home. Ooredoo is also developing services that offer a unique fan experience via mobile, with online visas, instant information and ticketing, that will support visitors when they arrive at the airport, travel to the stadium and make their way home.

Alongside next-generation customer services, Ooredoo aims to make Qatar the most secure sports event destination ever, deploying a cyber-security framework that addresses critical infrastructure threats and ensures an incident-free experience. Ooredoo has already demonstrated its experience and expertise in connecting world-class ICT infrastructure on major national projects including Lusail City, Hamad International Airport, Katara, Souq Waqif and more. This sponsorship of Qatar Olympic Committee in Rio is part of the company’s ongoing initiative to support sport and technological innovation in Qatar.
