Barcelona MWC ’17 – Day 1 update

Day 1 summary at MWC ’17:

After setting up our booth in the Hungarian corner and listening to a series of interesting keynotes, we ventured into the fortune 500 arena to pick up on the trends of this years’ Mobile World Congress. The sheer amount of input was staggering, but after the first 5 minutes of neon-dizziness, we regained focus, started mapping out the giants’ vision of the future and met some noteworthy eye candies to share:

  • Motion Eye, the first phone integrated slow-motion camera was just awesome
  • Project-and-touch technologies from multiple vendors – these may not be as fancy as the VR – AR headsets, but they have a lot useful, interactive applications on social level – not to mention they are a lot more audience-friendly
  • IoT everywhere – From agriculture through connected cities to the real time connected stadium of the Bayern Munich football team, IoT is optimizing and revolutionizing whole industries
  • 5g – everyone is trying to steal the show with cars driven real time via high-speed, ultra-low latency 5g connections – and we have seen all the possible combinations of drivers, cars, remote and local racetracks

The utilization potential of these technologies are endless – and to integrate any of them with the value chain, one would only need an innovative, resourceful partner with the right skillset for custom development. As it happens, we might just have you covered on that… J
