Ericsson is playing a key role globally and has signed a number of 5G commercial contracts and already announced some of those with 10 operators globally: T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint and AT&T in USA, Vodafone UK, Swisscom, Wind3 and Telenor in Europe, and SK Telecom and Telstra.

Ericsson has enjoyed phenomenal growth and success in the Middle East and Africa region, largely driven by the dynamic leadership skills of Rafiah Ibrahim, who has been the President of Ericsson Middle East and Africa since 2017.

Telecom Review TV managed to secure an exclusive interview with Ibrahim in a bid to understand the reasons behind the resurgence Ericsson has had over the last twelve months.

In a brilliant and engaging interview, Ibrahim highlights how Ericsson is helping operators achieve digital transformation, its overall strategy regarding 5G in the region, what differentiates the vendor from its competitors and what are its plans in 2019.
