The conference will examine the diverse benefits of 5G, particularly its role as a catalyst for fostering intelligence at the network edge and redefining our interactions with devices. Attendees can expect discussions on IoT and 6G advancements, their transformative effects on industries and implications for smart cities, and the evolution of networked infrastructure. Experts will also delve into how these technological advancements are likely to influence future global economies.
With the surge in connected IoT devices projected to surpass 15 billion within the next two years, the demand for seamless, sustainable, and secure network solutions has never been more crucial. Discussions will span diverse subject areas, including cloud hyperscaling, tower and fiber solutions, non-terrestrial networks, and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).
Generative AI is already revolutionizing work, lifestyles and human interactions. However, only 35% of business leaders are currently prioritizing the governance of AI systems and processes. How can organizations shift towards a responsible approach to AI, embedding trust by design in their operations?

“Over the last few months, almost a dozen companies worked together on defining their target client lists, unified branding, and value proposition. “Stronger together” was the common message in the meetings. Their active participation in the preparation process was what made the execution of the trip so different. A lot of people talk about the ideal collaboration between the public and the private sectors. While I can’t say we have found the secret sauce yet, I do feel like we are making giant leaps in the right direction.”

Connectivity is increasingly vital for fostering growth, enabling businesses to remain competitive and relevant both today and in the future.
As AI paves the way for personalized consumer experience and quantum computing promises solutions that can solve problems 100 million times faster than traditional computers, the boundaries between digital and physical worlds are being blurred. The questions arise how we will interact with the internet of the future and which technologies might fundamentally change industry dynamics.
As the world goes digital, persistent issues remain. How to ensure that the digital realm stays safe and fair and how to avoid AI bias? The imperative of inclusion and talent acquisition transcends mere corporate social responsibility clichés. The attendees of MWC Barcelona will have an opportunity to engage in insightful discussions addressing the issues of diversity, talent retention, and sustainable practices that will shape the future of the telecom industry.
