A few weeks ago, Mobile World Congress 2017 kicked on in
Barcelona, Spain with some of the biggest names in tech
descending upon the city to show off the top tech products.
From new phones from LG and Sony to tablets, VR and the rise of
robots, we wanted to take a moment to recap some of the top
takeaways from this year’s event.
UPSWING OF THE IOT
If you read PGi’s 2017 Future of Business Collaboration eBook, then you
already know that the Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to revolutionize how
we work and live. Unsurprisingly, the IoT dominated the show floor at MWC
with automotive companies, in particular, demonstrating how connected cars
will change our lives – like your car texting you when it needs an oil change
for example. The IoT is gaining traction, and with the help of 5G, will connect
an estimated 20 billion devices by 2020.
5G may not be here just yet, but
it is coming, and it is going to be
transformative. While the
technical standard has yet to be
settled, many industry leaders
have already published general
benchmarks for the new
THE FUTURE IS 5G
These studies cite
download speeds of up
to 10 gigs per second
(1000 times faster than
4G), and that the
network can support
one million connected
devices per square
The widespread use
of 5G is not without
It will require new
THE RISE OF ROBOTS
Like out of a Sci-Fi novel, it has become increasingly apparent that the rise of the robots
is really gaining traction. Robots roamed the conference floor of MWC this year, with a
notable standout robot named Pepper who greeted conference attendees and carried
an iPad to share conference information with attendees. In the near future, robots like
Pepper, could become commonplace at events with information for attendees or at
retail environments to assist customers with purchases.
CONFERENCING ON MOBILE
PGi was delighted to reveal a
surprise of our own at MWC 2017
with the debut of the mobile
collaboration exchange. PGi’s
mobile collaboration exchange
provides a first-of-its-kind global
conferencing and collaboration
service that leverages PGi’s existing
global conferencing network and
audio infrastructure to provide
mobile operators a way to deliver
an HD audio and video
conferencing experience and
maximize their existing investments
in their LTE and VoLTE
Currently, mobile HD audio
is only experienced on
point-to-point calls, but by
interconnecting to PGi’s
platform for mobile
collaboration exchange —
either directly or through
an IPX — HD audio
conferences can be
experienced by any VoLTE
customer on any network,
in any country.
