We always look forward to the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) here at UCtel, and this year's MWC19 in Barcelona is promising to throw up the usual blend of exciting developments and fascinating speakers. Among the companies we will be keeping an eye on is telecoms giant Cisco, who look set to be one of the most engaging contributors at the showpiece event at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona this week (it's still on until Thursday 28th February and you can see the Cisco stand at Hall 3 Stand 3E30).
One of the biggest reasons to pay close attention to what Cisco are doing is their plans to unveil their revolutionary 5G Architecture, in the form of the exhibition 'Cisco 5G in Action'. 5G is an exciting new mobile technology which we hope to deliver to our customers as soon as it becomes widely available on the market.
At the present time, the sky is literally the limit for 5G connectivity, as the innovation has the potential to offer many business benefits, according to Cisco.
The company explained in a statement: "We are focused on a 'monetisation first' approach and how you can maximize the value of your 5G investment by delivering new and unique services – when you make the right architectural transitions. Of course, you monetize your investment in multiple ways, so we are showing how the Cisco open 5G architecture helps you to grow revenues, reduce costs and mitigate risks."
The real world case studies which Cisco have announced they will be presenting at MWC19 should show us more about exactly how commercial organisations can take advantage of 5G, which incorporates machine learning for advanced automation, as well as closed loop functionality which makes 'self healing' possible.
In competitive markets where the name of the game is developing unique selling points on the path to profits, 5G has the potential to give customers the edge. On the back of MWC19, we will be bringing our customers the very best in 5G, in keeping with our speciality of communications optimisation. Among the first areas in the UK to start reaping the benefits of 5G could be rural regions which are currently under-served by broadband.
