Even though MWC will be different this year, the show remains the cornerstone of the mobile industry, and a great opportunity to gain insights into the future of the market.
The GSMA Intelligence team hosted an exclusive preview of the key MWC trends this year, why they matter, and how these topics tie in with their research.
Some of these trends will be obvious, like the continuing commercialization of 5G, telco cloud services, and how COVID-19 accelerated the digital transformation of businesses and operations. Some are less likely to be headline news, but still critical to the industry. Take network and services automation, 5G networks energy efficiencies, spectrum, and Open RAN, as examples.
In this preview the team discusses: the role of Open RAN in transforming operator networks, 5G IoT use cases for smart manufacturing and the role of Private Networks, the state and future outlook for eSIM in the consumer market, network energy efficiencies and the spectrum trends to watch.
The GSMA Intelligence team will be at MWC Barcelona in a few days, so book your analyst briefing to discuss the future of the industry!
