IoT, once again, was one of the hot topics/buzzwords at Mobile World Congress (MWC). Other technologies or concepts that got a lot of airtime in briefings and press releases were 5G, AI (artificial intelligence), (IoT) cybersecurity, network slicing and SD-WAN (software defined wide area network). In this brief insight, we have picked out three developments that cut across three broad IoT-related themes we saw at MWC (and indeed previous events) namely: lowering the cost of IoT connectivity; reducing complexity for developers and enterprises in planning IoT projects and increased focus on generating value from IoT data
Wayne Lam, Christian Kim | March 13, 2018
During Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 (Barcelona, February 26th to March 1st), 5G was the most discussed and highlighted topic. At MWC, almost all global telecommunications service operators announced their plans to deploy their 5G services commercially some as early as late 2018.
