Pyramid Research Perspectives on Mobile World Congress 2016: Key Developments and Analyst Takeaways

15 March 2016

This year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona had an unprecedented power to bring together top executives and influential leaders from an increasing variety of industries, from transportation and logistics, financial services and hospitality to healthcare, automotive and agriculture and food. Digital business transformation was a predominant theme, as virtually every vertical pursues digitalization for future growth. 

Under this overarching theme, key areas of focus were 5G and network virtualization, Big Data/analytics and internet of things (IoT). We saw data transfer speeds of over 20Gbps and ultra-low latency of less than one millisecond with 5G technology demos, took part in virtual reality (VR) demos facilitating remote collaboration and telepresence, and found out about the new partnerships operators are establishing to bring together a wide range of digital services from entertainment services to internet of things (IoT) and cloud computing.
