The most important congress in the field of telecommunications Mobile World Congress again in Barcelona
The cancellation of Mobile World Congress 2020, for all well-known reasons, was a blow to the economy of Barcelona. However, this summer the international congress still landed in the capital of Catalonia and is being held from June 28 to July 1 at the Fira de Barcelona exhibition center. Due to the pandemic, there are far fewer international participants, but many of them participate telematically. GSMA CEO John Hoffman stated that MWC 21 will be a great success, even with a limited number of attendees and visitors.
The Generalité emphasized the importance of the Catalan digital ecosystem for the MWC and pledged to become the 5G capital of the world. First Deputy Mayor of Barcelona Jaume Collboni said the MWC is a signal to the world that the city is back on its feet after the pandemic.
Yesterday, June 29, one of the most anticipated telematics conferences with Elon Musk was held at MWC 21. The celebrated engineer said his ambitious Starlink project aims to deliver an unprecedented global connectivity that will enable the world's most advanced broadband Internet system to be deployed to all corners of the planet. As part of the project, 1,500 satellites have already been launched into space with the ability to load 30 terawatts per second. Also, contracts are concluded with two major telecom operators. “It will be like connecting to the sky,” Musk said proudly.
