I’m in London this week from the 13th to the 18th for the 2017 Global Mobile Broadband Forum which runs across November 15th – 16th, London, United Kingdom, it’s in fact the 8th year now that Huawei and partners have hosted a Global Mobile Broadband Forum, each year in an exciting new location. The 2017 event is being held at the ExCeL Centre in London on November 15th &16th, 2017.
As always, it’s an honor to be hosted by a world leader to be part of an event such as this to be given inside access and early insights to the next big things, and this week I have the enviable pleasure of being the guest of Huawei and their Industry Partners GSMA and GTI.
Bringing together the world’s leading mobile and broadband industry’s key decision makers and influencers, to help shape the future of Mobile Broadband (MBB), this is an annual event of quote unique proportions.
The Purpose of Global MBB Forum
The purpose of this year’s Global MBB Forum is to bring together mobile network operators, vertical industry leaders and broader MBB ecosystem players to inspire thoughtful discussion, encourage valuable interaction and discover new ways to achieve sustainable growth.
In particular I’m looking forward to hearing directly from Huawei Rotating CEO Ken Hu, both as part of his opening keynote titled” Building Intelligent Networks and Reshaping the World with Mobile”, and discussion over the two days, what he and the Huawei team have to share with us, and where they are taking us in the short to medium term future.
Mobile and Broadband Industry Trends
Also across the event I’m looking forward to deep diving topics currently under consideration with global partners ranging from the future of mobile connectivity including 5G, mobile video and the latest MBB industry trends, to connected cars, robotics, and Internet of Things, all of which will help reshape our world through a ubiquitous mobile ecosystem.
