MWC 2022 was undoubtedly one of the busiest in recent years. With the post-pandemic halt and the rescheduling of MWC 2021, even though it was only 6 months since the last edition, everyone there was really looking forward to meeting each other, talking about technology and having a coffee.
In addition, this year Telefónica Tech brought to the physical stand in Barcelona and the virtual stand in the Telefónica Metaverse, a very complete proposal of all the digital transformation solutions for companies: IoT, Big Data, Blockchain, Cybersecurity and Cloud solutions.
Throughout the conference, the visitors in Barcelona also focused on the face-to-face demos at the Telefónica stand, which was visited by more than 2,560 people. First of all, the Smart Industry demo, where visitors could discover the different use cases of:
- Automation: a key element that increases efficiency, reduces costs and, above all, allows operators to perform higher value-added tasks while technology performs more repetitive tasks.
- Sustainability: through the application of IoT, Big Data, 5G, Cybersecurity, Blockchain and Cloud technology, it is possible to extend the useful life of resources and respond to energy anomalies, contributing to protecting the environment.
- Remote assistance: through the robotic arm we have seen how, thanks to the low latency provided by 5G and virtual reality, we can respond to incidents remotely and in real time, allowing industries to reduce response times and minimise costs.
And the Smart Buildings demo showed how the creation of smart buildings allows us to have integrated, automated, more efficient, healthier and safer management and control for people. We also saw how, through our integration platform, we obtain a centralised view of the data, which we collect, analyse and process.
We brought all of this to the keynote sessions organised by the GSMA and to those held in the Agora itself at the Telefónica stand:
- ‘𝐈𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐜𝐫𝐨𝐬𝐬 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬; 𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐧𝐞𝐱𝐭’ with Elena Gil Lizasoain taking part in a round table on the importance of diversity and inclusion as an essential commitment to enhance the value of companies.
- ‘Digital rights and SDGs: sustainable business facing the digital rights challenge‘. Once again, Elena Gil Lizasoain defended the conviction of companies regarding the need for digitalisation and the enormous role played by talent, especially people, in carrying out this transformation process. ” Customers, employees and investors are increasingly demanding to work with companies that are sustainable”
- ‘𝐊𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝟓𝐆 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐌𝐚𝐧𝐮𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠’ with Andres Escribano Riesco talking about smart industry and how 5G and digital technologies are enabling us to develop real-world use cases.
