Mobile World Congress 2019: Key Themes

This IDC Market Note provides an overview of important developments that we observed at Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC19). At MWC19, we had the opportunity to meet with a wide variety of industry participants spanning network operators, infrastructure suppliers, and industry bodies. "Carriers remain focused on expanding new revenue streams with 5G, improving the capital and operational efficiency of their infrastructure, suppliers on software-defined and automated solutions, and industry bodies on enabling open interfaces and standards to facilitate adoption of 5G and other enabling technologies. IDC observed consensus in the industry that 5G is here, the edge is strategic to delivering 5G, and cloud-native and automated infrastructure is key to harnessing the promise of 5G," says, Rajesh Ghai, research director, Carrier Network Infrastructure.
