It's day three at MWC 2017 in Barcelona, and Ericsson's Hall 2 is packed with activity and experts showing customers the latest possibilities in 5G, IoT and Cloud. According to this heat map taken at 2pm today, the 5G solutions are especially popular:
High numbers of visitors are swarming the 5G Connected Car demo to find out what it's like to drive a remote controlled car on a test track 70 km away using wireless networks.
IT & Cloud are also engaging crowds – topics here are the Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000 and Expert Analytics. This is where you can find the infamous Wall – our futuristic datacenter that has become the buzz at Barcelona.
And here is a video with Geoff Hollingworth, Head of Ericsson Cloud Marketing, explaining what future digital infrastructure will look like.
And if this wasn’t enough, check out our Haptic Glove – one of our most exciting 5G use cases - and learn what robotic surgery may look like.
Sustainability is a big topic here at MWC, so it is fitting that we today released our Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Report for 2016. In the outer area of Hall 2, visitors can walk into a Connect To Learn classroom in a Virtual Reality experience.
Tuesday there were nearly 6,000 visitors to Hall 2, especially in the evening when our President & CEO Börje Ekholm invited customers to a fireside chat and a mingle.
And today, Ulf Ewaldsson, our Chief Strategy and Technology Officer, invited analysts and media to discuss market, industry and technology evolution.
Wednesday is not yet slowing down.
