Delve deeper into huge growth areas like the Internet of Things, cloud computing, Open RAN and the GSMA’s Open Gateway framework of APIs at MWC Barcelona 2024.

From connecting everyone to connecting everything

With the number of connected IoT devices set to reach over 15 billion in two years, connecting everything requires network solutions that are open, seamless, sustainable, and secure.

At MWC Barcelona this year we’ll be welcoming thought leadership and expertise on how the growing mobile ecosystem can work together better. Covering subject areas from cloud hyperscaling and tower and fibre, to non-terrestrial networks and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), how will we collectively build more adaptable, automated and cost-efficient networks?
