Tomorrow’s technology – today: MWC Barcelona 2023

Mwc Preview

The hour of telecoms and tapas is almost upon us as Cerillion returns to MWC Barcelona later this month for the biggest event in the telecoms industry’s calendar – be sure to join us there!

We’re excited to be back in Barcelona for MWC 2023 from 27th February – 2nd March. Visit Cerillion at Hall 7, Stand 7B61 to find out how BSS/OSS-as-a-Service can transform your business.

For over thirty years, MWC has been the biggest event in the telecoms industry calendar for demonstrating the latest in telecom tech and thought leadership. After a COVID-induced hiatus and an experiment in hybrid exhibiting, 2022 was the first proper live event in three years, exceeding all expectations in terms of attendance, with over 60,000 guests and 1,500 exhibitors returning in-person.

This year’s theme is Velocity: Tomorrow’s technology – today, focusing on five major topic areas: 5G Acceleration, Reality+, OpenNet, FinTech and Digital Everything:

Amongst the many conference sessions, two that catch the eye are:

  • The Digital Future Society Summit, considering the impacts of artificial intelligence and digital transformation at the intersection of health, ethics, security and more – the phenomenal interest around ChatGPT is sure to make AI one of the hottest topics at MWC, and this 3-hour summit looks set to tackle all the difficult questions around its use, featuring representatives from the Government of Spain, UNICEF, and an Associate Professor from the Institute for Ethics in AI at the University of Oxford;
  • The Evolution of Innovation keynote, examining how AI, 5G and IoT are driving advancements in a wide range of industries beyond telecoms, featuring executives from Lockheed Martin and Maersk – will blockchain get a mention, following the recent shutdown of the IBM/Maersk TradeLens shipping platform?

While immersive technology and digitalisation is high on the agenda this year, we’ll be remaining on terra firma, cutting through the hype to offer you certainty of outcome in your digital transformation and monetisation projects – after all, what good is a 5G-fuelled virtual universe if you can’t charge or bill your customers for it?

Our pre-integrated, standards-based BSS/OSS solutions can strengthen your customer engagement, open up new revenue streams, and automate your business processes. Speak with one of our expert consultants at the show to discuss your challenges, and to see live demos of how Cerillion BSS/OSS-as-a-Service can help you and your business. But don’t just take our word for it – there'll also be other Cerillion customers on hand to share their experiences of working with Cerillion.

And if coffee and biscuits aren’t enough to complete your MWC experience, then join us and your fellow industry professionals after hours for an evening of drinks and pintxos at the famous Cerillion Tapas Bar on Tuesday 28th February; tickets are available from the Cerillion stand, or from your Cerillion account manager.
