From network infrastructure to 5G devices, mobile applications to IT transformation services, the breadth of content and mobile ecosystem players present at MWC has long been a boon to anyone looking to understand (and profit from) the wireless industry. This breadth, however, can quickly become overwhelming.

Join in-the-know industry analysts and journalists as they deliver expert guidance on what you should expect to be news at MWC21, and what you should be paying attention to.

AI in telecoms is not new. Many examples are available to demonstrate how AI applications are already helping operators optimize some of their network operations and enhance customer support. By 2025, one third of MNOs will have automated 80% of their networks, with the primary objective of driving new revenue for 64% of those, according to GSMA Intelligence’s Network Transformation 2020 survey. But today, Covid-19 is accelerating the need for seamless connectivity, and with new enterprise requirements for performance, agility and latency, along with the ongoing quest to drive growth in a crowded competitive space, moving to fully automated, AI-driven operations beyond only infrastructure have become a priority for the telecoms industry.

This conference will gather experts from the ecosystem to discuss the role of AI- and ML- based network automation, how to cut through the complexity to address new industry requirements whilst delivering value-added services, and where the opportunities lie for operators on their journeys to becoming digital service providers.

There is little doubt that the pandemic has changed the way enterprises operate. While some IoT projects were put on hold or cancelled, the pandemic has also highlighted the overall commitment to digital transformation and the need to make use of data, in the cloud or at the edge. Challenges to IoT deployments remain, particularly around integration, privacy, security and cost. Businesses also find it challenging to navigate the complex and fragmented IoT vendor ecosystem. The potential market for private wireless networks adds further complexity: the GSMA Intelligence Enterprise in Focus Survey shows that 22% of enterprises require location-specific coverage (e.g. for a campus or factory).

This session will discuss how ecosystem players can help simplify and scale deployments, leverage partnerships and address the challenges facing enterprises on their digital transformation journey in the 5G era.

Our session speakers: 

  • Andres Escribano, New Business & Industry 4.0 Director, Telefonica
  • Jane Rygaard, Head of Dedicated Wireless Networks & Edge Clouds, Nokia
  • Romil Bahl, CEO & President, KORE Wireless
  • Ed Cabrera, Chief Cybersecurity Officer, Trend Micro
  • Moderator: Sylwia Kechiche, Principal Analyst, IoT & Enterprise, GSMA Intelligence

MWC is not a competition. And yet, with so many vendors, operators, technologies, and product announcements competing for attention, it’s only natural look back at a busy week and ask some important questions. Which technologies and trends progressed the most?  Which seemed to stall? Which announcements and messages resonated?  Which missed the mark? And, ultimately, what did we learn this year?

Join GSMA Intelligence analysts and industry experts as they look back on a busy week – and weigh in on what it means for the rest of the year.

Thursday, 1 July 2021, 14:00 – 14:45 CET
