5f4b4505637344351af0a46a3aab7167Etisalat, the leading telecommunications operator in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, has partnered with Ubimax, a leading provider of wearables solutions to businesses, to trial the next generation of Smart Glasses, which will provide major benefits to companies in terms of efficiency and productivity.

Smart Glasses technology allows users hands-free access to relevant information and supporting documents while conducting their work. As a result, operations are simplified, errors are reduced, productivity increases and time is saved. This has a significant impact on business efficiency. Such solutions will add real value across a number of industries, including logistics, construction, oil and gas, field maintenance, training and in the retail sector.

Khalifa Al Shamsi, Chief Digital Services Officer, Etisalat Group, said, “Smart Glasses are a driver of the next generation of business innovation. By partnering with Ubimax, Etisalat is consolidating its position as a leader in bringing new products and new technologies to market for the benefit of our customers across our international footprint. In addition, this innovative technology will create a new line of solutions, as well an additional revenue stream for Etisalat.”

Etisalat will leverage its infrastructure and its ‘Internet of Things’ capabilities to conduct trials of the wearable solutions with government and enterprise customers to demonstrate their business potential before introducing them to the market. Based on the result of the trials and customers’ feedback, Etisalat will subsequently create offerings across its international footprint of 18 countries. The wearables were recently demonstrated on Etisalat’s stand at GITEX 2015.
