Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 is now less than two months away and the mobile industry is shifting into high gear! From now until the booths come down and the Fira Barcelona goes silent, it’s full speed ahead.
No one is more excited about Cisco’s mobility story—and our presence at MWC 2012—than Chairman and CEO John Chambers. As he often says, “mobility is the killer app” and the biggest of all the IP market transitions that service providers are facing today. John has agreed to be a keynote speaker at the show, addressing the topic of Exploring the Mobile Cloud. I hope you’ll join him on Tuesday, February 28 from 11 AM-12:30 PM local time in Hall 5, Auditorium 1 as he engages with other industry leaders on the future of the mobile cloud, its requirements and drivers, and the innovations we can expect to see in coming years.
Take a minute to watch John’s personal invitation to join us at the Cisco booth. It’s a place where mobile operators can see Cisco’s best-in-class technology demoed, dialogue with Cisco’s subject matter experts, and find solutions to their most perplexing problems. As in years past, we expect a flurry of activities and tired feet at the end of the day!
