Connecting Everything

With the number of IoT devices poised to surpass 15 billion in two years, the demand for open, seamless, sustainable, and secure network solutions intensifies.

MWC Barcelona 2024 will host discussions on enhancing collaboration within the expanding mobile ecosystem. The focus will span cloud hyper-scaling, tower and fiber technologies, non-terrestrial networks, and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA). The event will explore collective efforts in constructing more flexible, automated, and cost-efficient networks.

Humanising AI

Generative AI (GenAI) stands poised to transform work, lifestyle, and interactions, yet only 35% of business leaders focus on AI governance.

At MWC Barcelona, the spotlight will be on fostering a responsible AI approach and embedding trust by design. Discussions will delve into addressing data risks, model biases, and the broader implications of GenAI adoption.

Game Changers

The era of big data has evolved into small data, empowering AI to deliver personalized consumer experiences, while quantum computing, with record investments, is poised to solve problems exponentially faster than traditional computers. Blockchain, meanwhile, has revolutionized fintech, and the metaverse is erasing the lines between digital and physical realms.

The future prompts questions about smartphones morphing into AR/VR headsets or ambient assistants, and which technologies will fundamentally reshape industry dynamics. All will be open for serious discussion and MWC Barcelona.

Our Digital DNA

In the telecom ecosystem, diversity and talent acquisition go beyond corporate social responsibility clichés, while the rapid evolution of technology in general amplifies the need to attract and retain talent.

However, the number of women in tech leadership roles has declined in the past year. Despite a more circular approach for sustainability and energy efficiency, the industry falls short of achieving UN targets. Digital inclusion, diversity, and sustainable technology will all be hot topics at MWC 2024.
