Ronald Gruia, Principal Telecom Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Information & Communications Technology practice
More than 72,000 attendees from 200 countries made the annual journey to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) held in Barcelona. Approximately 1,500 companies gathered to showcase their latest innovations under the "New Mobile Horizon" conference slogan.
Key themes this year included the ongoing migration to 4G/LTE, voice over LTE (VoLTE), new handset launches, M2M evolution, software defined networking (SDN), the advent of new mobile operating system (OS) flavors, and combating the Over-The-Top (OTT) threat to mobile operators, among others. This briefing will offer a comprehensive perspective of these and other issues.
This session will benefit infrastructure vendors, application developers, value added services vendors, system integrators, handset vendors, and telecom carriers. Emerging trends and key takeaways will be discussed based on conversations held at the show with mobile operators, network equipment vendors and application developers from around the world.
"This year's edition of the MWC brought in quite a bit of optimism with respect to the ongoing uptake of 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE)," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Telecom Analyst Ronald Gruia. "We witnessed further confirmation of the dawn of the software defined networking (SDN) paradigm, with several vendors showcasing their roadmaps."
Another catalyst is the overall positive mood, as observed by Gruia: "The mobile industry seems to be recovering after an unsteady 2012 and reloading for more LTE build outs, with opportunities for radio access (including small cell and Wi-Fi offload), followed by mobile core and backhaul."
