Telefónica analyses business models for M2M at MWC 2014

Published by Telefónica m2m Team m2m General

More than 72,000 attendees on 94,000 square meters. Nearly 1,700 exhibitors wishing to show their newest inventions. More than 3,400 accredited journalists representing 1,500 media outlets from nearly 80 countries... These figures provide a glimpse of what the Mobile World Congress, which will be held in Barcelona, Spain, from the 24th to the 27th of February, will involve.

To say that practically everyone in the field of mobile technology will attend this event could actually be an understatement.

Telefónica’s presence

Telefónica precisely chose this high-expectation setting to show its managed connectivity, smart metering, connected car and wearable devices solutions.

Also its latest agreements will play an important role, for example the launch of its Global M2M Channel Partner Programme extending its offer to all the m2m market players, including the expansion of its Smart M2M Solution to Latin America, which will allow its clients in this region to connect, manage and control M2M communications with a local SIM card, flexibly and securely.

In addition, two of the company’s key figures will present their thoughts on the industry in keynote addresses:

  • Connected Living, by Ángel David García Barrios, Head of Strategy and Alliances for Global M2M at Telefónica Digital. Wednesday 26 February, at 8:30 a.m.
  • Spotlight on Business Models for M2M Services, by Carlos Morales, Global Managing Director for M2M, Cloud Computing & Apps at Telefónica. Wednesday 26 February, at 04:30 p.m.

We can obtain further information on the topics above at the stand sponsored by the company in the venue.

Other highlights

The Mobile World Congress occasion has always stood out as the date companies in the industry choose to communicate their launches. A good indication of this trend are the presentations of 2014’s most relevant smartphones, by Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC and Nokia, among others.

The presence of major international figures also arouses great interest and, this year, especially Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg’s mobile world live keynote.

And of course, the MWC will make room for all current trends.

Keep in mind for an optimum (first) visit

Those who come to this great event for the first time must be clear on one point: focus is our great ally. The thing is that at an event of this scale, trying to cover everything is a mistake. Therefore, the first recommendation is to take a good look at the agenda before attending and to select those events that you feel you cannot miss.

Then, prepare the items that should not be absent from well packed luggage, such as business cards, comfy shoes or chargers for the different mobile devices.

In order to avoid jams and waits, you should know that there are a variety of ways to register, before arriving on the premises at Fira. During this important event, we recommend following it on Twitter at the official hashtag.

Otherwise, Telefónica m2m invites you to enjoy the Mobile World Congress 2014 and to visit our stand, so that you’ll be up to date with the latest news in the m2m world.

For those who cannot travel, we will keep you informed about the goings on at the MWC 2014 through our Twitter account, through LinkedIn and through this blog, where we will publish a daily update.
