Ooredoo Kuwait, a leading telecommunications company in Kuwait, has partnered with Huawei to upgrade the FIBRE+ high-speed Internet experience and develop a fibre-optic sensing smart solution. The deal was signed during the recently concluded Mobile World Congress 2023 in Barcelona.
Ooredoo Kuwait introduced the first-of-its-kind FIBRE+ solution last year, extending fibre across homes and large areas to build an all-optical base for smart homes and digital enterprises. FIBRE+ provides gigabit Wi-Fi 6 coverage in each room and a brand-new digital experience enabling parallel connections for various digital applications.

Ooredoo Kuwait has been testing advanced network access technology to expand the capability of its last-mile connection to sustain the ever-increasing demand for internet bandwidth and indoor coverage spots. The service can offer an advanced connectivity experience, doubling the current internet speed to reach beyond 1 Gbps throughput.
In addition, Ooredoo has a futuristic vision of a smart city and is planning to test advanced fibre sensing applications over FAST telco’s fibre infrastructure. This will evolve the fibre network’s capability to inspect, detect, locate and measure events, such as temperature and strain, in real-time at any point along the fibre installation without requiring new IoT sensors and power sources.
