Mobile World Congress 2010: Greetings from Barcelona

February 16, 2010 - 0 Comments

Mobility at the Center of the Telecom Universe

It seems that everyone we know wants to talk about the Mobile Internet opportunity and how smartphone Apps have reached mainstream adoption in the marketplace.

The accelerated market momentum is very apparent, as we participate in the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona this week. We’ve lined up about 250 meetings with our customers, and we’re eager to discuss how our enhanced value proposition can help service providers Supercharge the Mobile Internet.

Last week we shared our forward-looking insights from the Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast. That latest assessment was a perfect backdrop as we launched the ASR 5000 – providing a comprehensive end-to-end IP NGN architecture that offers mobile operators a platform specifically designed to accommodate the rapid growth of mobile Internet traffic and mobile multimedia applications.

Mobile data applications are surfacing in numerous industries, and extending beyond the traditional devices. As an example, Telenor Connexion chose Cisco mobile Internet technologies to upgrade its IP NGN in order to increase network capacity, redundancy, flexibility, and policy control for its rapidly expanding M2M services.

I’ll be providing more insights during the week, so please stay tuned!
