    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.

    With the world gearing up for a massive increase in IoT devices and the building of 5G networks, what we heard at Mobile World Congress this year is that OSS/BSS vendors are welcoming the new requirements with 5G-ready cloud platforms that facilitate service providers’ network virtualization process. Every service provider we’ve spoken with is involved in a network function virtualization project, and a few of them, including AT&T and Telefónica, are ahead of the process with large digital transformation initiatives. In fact, Telefónica organized a full session that dove into its ambitious transformation into a liquid software-defined automated network, where each network node is under consideration with a chief goal in mind: the move to 5G and future network architectures that revolve around convergence, simplification, disaggregation, virtualization, cloudification, automation, and infinite capacity. We can tell the vendors got the message, which can be summed up in five themes: cloud, 5G readiness, open source, collaboration and partnership, and digital BSS.

    After a first cut at 6G, let’s come back to the highlight of the show. As usual, Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri kicked off the event with his traditional keynote Sunday afternoon. Of course, he didn’t miss the chance to remind the audience that his company was the only one available in all geographies across the world. As we all know, Huawei is banned in the US market—although they have a small presence in rural America—but this statement prompted us to wonder where Ericsson wasn’t present. Anyway, everyone sees 2019 shaping up as a big year for 5G, so here is a summary of the world’s three largest RAN vendors’ war of 5G claims. Clients, please log in to view the full content.
