Mobile technology plays key role in tackling pandemic. Mobile World Congress 2021 coverage
Mobile World Congress in Barcelona runs from June 28 to July 1, and this is the sixth time we've been there. The theme of this year's event is Connected Impact, and attendees will explore how artificial intelligence, 5G, Big Data and IoT will shape the future and continue to change lives.
Time to connect, rebuild and re-imagine a more connected world! That's the slogan for this year's event, after it was cancelled last year. Pictured above is Mats Granryd, CEO of organizer GSMA, who is giving the keynote address.
Naturally, due to the different situation in the world, the policy of countries and companies on security for foreign travel and meetings, the number of exhibitors is smaller, as is the number of visitors, but the latter according to the organizer is up to 35 thousand.
We have had a lot of interesting meetings with contractors and we know that the biggest interest among the partners is for our latest myPhone and Hammer smartphones with eSIM and solutions with an app for security – 4family. Hammer Blade 5G is definitely our export product. The brand provides ruggedized smartphones that always stand out with cutting-edge features in their price segment. Now betting on 5G and eSIM technology.
In general, everyone looks forward to the opportunity to meet face to face and appreciates that the fair after a break of more than a year was also held stationary. Mats Granryd during his speech referred to the results of the Global Mobile Economy 2021 report.
The report highlights the key role that mobile technology plays as governments seek to boost the economy and build a better, more inclusive society. Makes a range of policy recommendations for shaping the post-pandemic digital economy, from direct stimulus funds and data-balancing policies to removing barriers to network deployment, including 5G.
Just – since the last industry meeting in Barcelona in February 2019, the number of 5G networks has grown from three in South Korea, to 165 networks in more than 65 countries around the world. And let that be the conclusion and a good prognosis for the future, both for the industry and for all of us.
