Sponsored by: GlobalData
Date: 12 March
Time: 2PM London/10AM New York
Insights, intelligence and analysis from the biggest mobile trade show of the year
Every year, the wireless industry flocks to the GSMA's Mobile World Congress (MWC). From consumer and enterprise services and software, to mobile infrastructure, platforms and mobile devices, nearly every stakeholder is present. Why? The short answer: as the biggest mobile trade show of the year, it's one event that cannot be ignored. The longer answer: they show up to market their products but, more importantly, to learn about, discuss, debate, and chart the future of mobility.
With a deep roster of analysts at 2015's MWC, Current Analysis will be an active part of those discussions and debates, heading into the event with a number of topics on their minds.
- Will network vendors be preoccupied with 5G, or will tactical considerations around RAN and SDN/NFV evolutions dominate their messaging?
- Mobile service innovation - from carriers and OTT players - is a well-worn MWC focus. How will it be represented this year?
- What are the new products and services to help businesses leverage mobility for not only communications and productivity but for real process transformation?
- Are M2M and the IoT finally proven growth areas? - What are the latest use cases and technologies that will launch connected devices into a significant and profitable market
- What's the one event everyone will come away from Mobile World Congress talking about. Last year it was Facebook's keynote and WhatsApp acquisition.
The GSMA bills MWC 2015 as "The Edge of Innovation." That's a lofty goal that can only be executed on by an entire mobile ecosystem. Perhaps the biggest question, then, is whether or not this goal will be fulfilled.
