Considered to be one of the foremost mobile exhibitions across the world, MWC is set to congregate almost all the mobile network, smartphone and gadget industry leaders to showcase their latest innovations.

During the four days of MWC, the most prominent companies in the industry will showcase the latest technologies and innovative products.

As the IoT and 5G come to the fore, businesses and lives grow increasingly dependent on connectivity, with service assurance becoming more important and more complex than ever before. NETSCOUT will discuss these challenges as well as the opportunities this environment creates during the event.

John English, senior product manager for service providers at Netscout, said, “At MWC, we expect to see more examples of how the IoT can touch all aspects of the digital economy, unlocking enormous benefits in a wide range of sectors, from agriculture to automotive.”

“With more and more IoT technologies underpinning critical applications, such as disaster monitoring and military situational awareness, service delivery assurance and security assurance will come into sharp focus. Conversations at the show will therefore focus on the increasing challenge of maintaining connectivity and communication across a myriad of devices and infrastructures in the IoT age,” English added.

Cobham Wireless, provider of digital Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), will be showcasing a variety of demos at the show, including new 5G dual connectivity capabilities and NB-IoT use cases and demonstrate how its flagship product, idDAS, delivers the coverage and capacity to connect the smart cities of the future. The company will also discuss how networks can be validated to comply with 3GPP 5G standards, and reveal which operators have made significant progress in this area.

“Smart cities will be a major point of focus at MWC, from the autonomous vehicles which will transport their citizens to the innovations in the medical industry which will help improve welfare. Digital DAS deployed in a C-RAN model will emerge as the critical network architecture required to make these concepts a reality, allowing capacity to be cost-effectively distributed to different sectors of a building or areas across a smart city,” noted Rami Hasarchi, vice-president for coverage at Cobham Wireless.

Blue Danube Systems, designer of mobile wireless radio solutions that leverage LTE Massive MIMO technology, will discuss how Massive MIMO systems can be deployed in current LTE networks, supporting multiple frequency bands, setting the stage for the roll-out of 5G.

Infobip, a leading CPaaS provider, will discuss how mobile messaging is driving customer engagement and brand communications for service providers and the enterprise.

Smartphone giants Samsung, LG, Sony and Huawei will exhibit their latest offerings at MWC 2018. In addition, the event will also include the newcomers such as Xiaomi and Nokia to unveil their new products. Apart from them, some of the most distinguished and innovative companies to exhibit their product include China Mobile, Deloitte, Deutsche Telekom, Ericsson, Essential, Facebook, Fujitsu, Google, IBM and etc.
