His Excellency the Minister mentioned that the Ministry, in partnership with telecommunications service providers, has worked together to develop and expand the infrastructure of its communications networks to improve their efficiency while increasing their absorptive capacity. Along with introducing the 5G technology. Furthermore, the networks of government and sports agencies, especially stadiums, have been strengthened with high-speed fiber-optic networks, to provide the best services during the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
We have also developed the capabilities of the Communications Regulatory Authority to monitor and manage the frequency spectrum, by developing monitoring and management systems that identify and reduce any source of interference on frequencies and satellite broadcasts, to ensure the best quality of communication services and audio-visual broadcasting services. By the requirements of FIFA, an automatic detection system for unmanned aerial vehicles (Drones) was built, to enable the Authority to monitor drones to protect communications networks from unauthorized radio emissions.
