    This year’s MWC Barcelona event was an important gathering place for the mobile industry, playing host to an interesting dialogue about the future of mobile connectivity. Of course, 5G was the focus of MWC, but a few other topics managed to be part of the overall mobile discussion—WiFi in particular managed to shine through the deluge of 5G announcements. Service providers like AT&T, manufacturer Samsung, network vendors Cisco and Nokia, and Internet giants Facebook and Google all made notable WiFi announcements highlighting not only their own WiFi activity but continuity of the larger WiFi ecosystem. This research note provides a summary of some of the announcements and discussions we had related to WiFi and how it relates to network and service evolution in the 5G era.

    The UK Government has published today its draft tariff schedule in the event of a ‘no deal’ for leaving the European Union. For TVs, that would mean a potential elimination of high tariffs on sets coming from China, and could signal significant disruption in the brand landscape after a period of adjustment. Of course, this is contingent on a 'no deal' Brexit, which is far from certain.

    Amazon is to enter the home networking equipment market by acquiring Eero, a whole-home Wi-Fi vendor. Eero’s solution consists of a router hub and beacons that can be plugged into a wall outlet to form a mesh network. Unlike most retail Wi-Fi extenders, Eero’s solution is a mesh system with a single service set identifier (SSID). The system also steers the end device to the nearest Eero access point, and identifies which is the most efficient Wi-Fi band, for the end device to achieve optimum Wi-Fi throughput around the home. Eero also offers Eero Plus; an in-home cyber security service for a 99 USD annual subscription. The service also provides managed safe browsing, with the end user able to manage accessible content in the app, anti-virus software, virtual private network (VPN) protection, password management, and ad blocking. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Amazon announced that every Eero employee will be given an offer for continued employment.
