Mobile World Live Keynote – Ericsson
When Ericsson President and CEO Hans Vestberg predicted in 2010 that the number of internet connected devices would reach into the tens of billions, the claim was met with a degree of scepticism. As more and more vertical sectors begin to realise the incredible value embedded mobile technology can bring to their business and operating models however, the mobile industry appears ever closer to realising this incredible potential.
How will these billions of connected devices impact our broadband networks, both fixed and wireless, and what investments in ICT infrastructure will be required to insure a smooth transition to the connected economy? How will all of these new devices affect our everyday lives and how will people be able to interact with the “internet of things”? What new platforms and services will these devices enable?
In the final Mobile World Live keynote of the 2012 Mobile World Congress, Hans Vestberg will provide a tantalising glimpse into the future of the mobile industry.
