At MyAmplifiers, we are always working hard to enhance our products and services in order to provide the best customer experience ever.

And we know that to stay competitive in the industry, we need to establish and support our positions in the international arena. One of the best ways to do that is to take part in global professional events like congresses and conferences. For many years, our team is a participant of the Mobile World Congress. However, 2021 was an exception. Due to COVID-19 restriction measures, we didn’t attend the MWC21 in Barcelona. But it doesn’t mean that we have fully missed it. We managed to join the event online.
The Mobile World Congress is one of the most important events in the telecommunications industry. It took place on June 28, 2021 – July 1, 2021, in Barcelona, Spain. The event was quite unusual. First of all, it was postponed. Traditionally this event is organized in February or March. Secondly, it had a new format. As the world is learning to live with COVID-19, MWC21 was held in a hybrid form. And it was a cool decision. Participants could enjoy a combination of online and in-person meetings. Just a reminder: in 2020, the Congress was canceled.
The main topic that was covered at MWC21 was “Connected Impact” and the key technologies that were discussed by the major industry players included 5G, AI, Big Data and IoT. Experts shared their thoughts on how this tech could change our lives and how they can be used to ensure better connectivity in the world. It was interesting to listen to the opinions of the representatives of such prominent companies as IBM, AWS, ZTE, Accenture and SpaceX (yes, even Elon Musk was there) on what we could expect next for the industry, how it will be developing and what priorities we all should set for our businesses.
As usual, the Mobile World Congress became a platform for the presentation of many cutting-edge innovations. Though we can’t enumerate them all here, let us mention at least a couple of them. For example, one of the brightest 5G developments was Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888+ 5G that has a computing capacity of 32 trillion operations per second. Verizon won the hearts of the audience with its 5G robots while TCL attracted attention with its NxtTWear G connected glasses. They are able to simulate a 140-inch virtual screen that can be projected 4 meters from the person wearing glasses.
A lot of well-known mobile operators and telecommunication companies also took part in the event and some of them even had the possibility to present their stands physically. One of them was Orange that revealed some of their recent innovations in cybersecurity and mobile networks.
All in all, during 4 days of the Congress, representatives of 117 countries attended the event offline but if we took into account online participation as well, this figure will hit 165.
Our main conclusions
For us, it was rather sad that we couldn't physically visit the stands at the exhibition and communicate with experts in person. But this hybrid form was a great experience. And it shows once again that thanks to modern technologies we all could stay connected regardless of all the challenges and restrictions.
We hope that the next event will welcome more guests in a traditional format and we will be able to establish a lot of valuable contacts in the framework of MWC22.
