Hytera, the global provider of professional communications technologies and solutions, has enabled availability of critical communications during this year’s successful Hajj in the holy city of Makkah together with its local partners and clients in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Hajj (“to attend a journey” in Arabic) is the fifth pillar of Islam and the most significant manifestation of Islamic faith and unity. Undertaking the Hajj at least once is a duty for Muslims who are physically and financially able to make the journey to Makkah. In 2019, around 2.5 million Muslims from around the world participated in the Hajj.
In 2021 (Islamic year 1442 AH), Saudi government downsized the number of Hajj pilgrims to 60,000 vaccinated Saudi citizens/residents and announced particular health protocols against COVID-19 in order to hold safe 1442 Hajj. Different government departments and tens of thousands of people were involved in 1442 Hajj to serve the pilgrims. New technologies like smart watches, smart card system, AI, robots are also adopted.
Critical communications plays an important role in securing and serving the successful Hajj by improving higher communication efficiency within organizations and better collaboration among different departments/authorities. Hytera is honored to serve the successful 1442 Hajj together with its local partners and clients.
