Diverse Reality - A View from the MWC 2017 Walkway

b2ap3_thumbnail_MWC2017

MWC is the biggest Telecoms event in the world and most of us were expecting the big theme this year to be 5G. Whilst 5G was present on many stands, it was upstaged by both a faster type of 4G and a phone from the past. The other takeaway from Barcelona’s mega tradefest was the huge diversity of people, exhibitors and themes on show. ‘Mobility’ may have been a connecting theme but only in the broadest sense.

Here are my impressions:

 Back to the Past

Samsung executives looked on aghast as Nokia, the European has-been of mobile phones stole the show with its latest or should I say throwback phone – the 3310. With 22 hours of talk-time and up to a month’s standby time and even a made-over Snake game, those of us that carry two or more portable battery chargers to get through the day couldn’t resist a nostalgic smile.

Gigabit LTE versus 5G

5G was on show on numerous devices but plastered over the billboards was the promise and reality of Gigabit LTE. Based on 4G technology and 4x4 MIMO, Gigabit-LTE is here, or at least it is in Australia we are told – other operators soon to launch. Expect only about 60Mb/s of real-life performance though.
