What an amazing four days for Syniverse at Mobile World Congress Barcelona last week! We made a number of big announcements on 5G that will propel the industry to move 5G from a technical capability to a commercial reality this year. We also made a number of announcements on partnerships that will boost how the market addresses the internet of things (IoT).
Here’s a quick look at the highlights we announced and what the media had to say about the news.
One of the high points of our week was the announcement of a major study on a technology that filled the show floor – 5G. To prepare for this evolution, we commissioned a study with Heavy Reading to look at how mobile operators will begin to make use of 5G and how these services will play a part in operators’ business models.
Check out the findings in our new report: “How the 5G ecosystem will pay for itself.” We’re excited about further diving into the data and sharing more on our findings this year, and about building on the positive media buzz we’ve gotten so far, which can you can check out further below.
New Partnerships and Services
You can also see below some media coverage highlights from some of the other high points of our week, which included a string of announcements made for MWC Barcelona:

- Tata Communications partnership – We’re collaborating on the first IPX network interconnection partnership, which will pave the way for a new wave of 5G and IoT services.
