After 28 months, Mobile World Congress came back to Barcelona, much smaller and with significant absences, but with a renewed interest in meeting on-site, focusing on 5G, OpenRAN, and massive IoT

It was a strange feeling for most of us attending the show. Almost two and a half years after the last edition, we were back at Fira Barcelona for MWC21.

I have been covering MWC since the 2013 edition, watching it first hand become the largest tech conference for the communications industry. The 2019 edition attracted over 110,000 visitors worldwide, leaving an economic impact of over € 500 million in Barcelona. Additionally, the GSMA reported that business deals of over $55 billion happened during the show.

I don’t have to tell you what happened last year, just that MWC Barcelona was the first large technology show canceled due to the pandemic.

Four months later than the usual dates, this year’s show has been quite different, but successful in bringing people together at the exhibition floor and during the conference sessions.

Tight security and health precautions

For MWC to happen this year, the organizers had to put strict rules for capacity, social distancing, testing, and other restrictions. All people present at the show, including exhibitors, speakers, staff, attendees, and even authorities, had to submit a valid PCR or antigen test done within 72 hours. Vaccination certificates were not accepted. So, if you needed to attend the four days of the show, you had to do the test twice.

Fira Barcelona allocated a large section of Hall 1 for antigen testing, with results in 10-15 minutes. I did mine on Monday morning and, after receiving a text message with a negative result, my digital badge turned green, and I was able to enter the exhibition.

No physical badges this year; everything was on the MWC app. Well, it is the Mobile World Congress, right? You just had to make sure you juiced up your phone every day. At least, the GSMA app was not such a power drain as in previous editions.

Not many international travelers, but lots of locals

Apart from the fact that many international corporations decided to skip MWC this year, not many international visitors were at the show. To compensate for this, the GSMA offered exhibition access tickets to residents in Spain for €25 ($30), and Fira Barcelona also gave away free tickets to registered attendees of previous trade shows.

Some large international corporations were present, including several Chinese firms. Huawei, ZTE, and others had large booths staffed by their European-based employees.

Despite all efforts from the organizers to fill up space, you could see significant gaps in the exhibition area. Also, this MWC was only using three of the eight halls of Fira Gran Via, and 4YFN, the show for startups, which usually takes place in the old Barcelona fairgrounds, joined MWC using half of one of the halls.

Lots of discussions about OpenRAN, Standalone 5G, and Massive IoT

We had several talks about OpenRAN at the conference, and operators are now starting to embrace the technology. However, traditional carriers are reluctant to open their networks, fearing the possibility of losing some control of their data and operations. Something similar happened a few years ago with the embedded SIM (eSIM), which gave customers a better choice at changing carriers, but now almost all of them support the technology.

Also, new standalone 5G networks are beginning to light up. All the commercial 5G networks in operation are based on 3GPP Release 14 and 15. Release 16, which will start being commercially available next year, will allow LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies to connect to the core 5G networks, enabling massive IoT on 5G.

Furthermore, release 16 will enhance and enable features such as network slicing, critical for private networks, and critical infrastructure.

GSMA Intelligence hosted several talks at the show. We had the opportunity to talk to Peter Jarich (interview coming soon) and Sylwia Kechiche about this and other topics around 5G and IoT.

Cloud City was the star of the show, with live concerts in a massive booth

If there was a place that had a lot of action during the show, it was TelcoDR’s Cloud City! Danielle Royston’s move to grab the massive 6,000 m2 booth previously reserved for Ericsson was a success, and big crowds were always present at the pavilion (within capacity limits).

Danielle, who I had the pleasure of interviewing three months ago, was the star of MWC, giving one of the best keynote speeches, advocating for Public Cloud as the means to leverage the power of today’s networks.

Additionally, to attract the thousands of young people attending MWC for the first time, she hired Rosario, one of the most famous Spanish pop performers, a well-known DJ, and Bon Jovi, who gave a concert at the booth on Tuesday evening.

During the Bon Jovi concert, security had to disperse the crowd that congregated just outside the pavilion. Many people, including some employees, had to leave the booth to comply with capacity restrictions.

I had the opportunity to catch up with Danielle on Wednesday. She was elated about the results during the show and the popularity of her booth. About the next MWC, which is supposed to happen in February 2022, she said they are definitely coming and, if Ericsson is not asking for their booth back (they have a long-term contract with GSMA), she will retake it.

MWC 2022 will be back on the usual dates

Hopefully, next year we’ll be back to almost normal at MWC Barcelona. The show will be back at the end of February, and the GSMA is confident that most of the exhibitors and delegates from previous years will be back for the event.

For companies such as Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, NXP, Infineon, and others, it will be three years since the last time they have exhibited physically at MWC. I am sure they are eager to get back here to meet their customers, colleagues, and friends.

MWC 2022 won’t be, however, the same way as three years ago. The hybrid presence will be an essential part of the show, and hybrid conferences are here to stay.

Changes in our ecosystem are happening at a pace that humanity is barely keeping up with. Shortages of raw materials, food, and other necessities are hitting countries all over the globe and one industry is trying to change all this — IoT.

IoT is going beyond transforming homes and urban landscapes, it’s changing the way we produce and manage the things we eat. Smart farming solutions are gaining popularity worldwide. Thanks to the innovations created — like the smart systems made by ag-tech startup Farmo — we are seeing creative ways for us to make sure all mouths around the world are fed.

IoT Sensors: Churning the Smart Farming Mill

One important aspect of IoT is the sensors — a way for each application to gather data about its environment so the data can be used to optimize the management of a particular system. In the case of smart farming solutions, sensors help farmers and agricultural groups assess, keep track of, and manage their land.

Sensors give insights into important details of the farming process, including pH levels of the soil, asset monitoring, and predictive maintenance of tools, among others. They help manage resource consumption and reduce farming costs by optimizing the way everything ebbs and flows. An example of an important IoT sensor for smart farming solutions is one that measures moisture and temperature. This sensor could help monitor irrigation and help give insights on how to maximize it for specific soil conditions and weather changes, thus conserving more water.

Another problem that sensors can address for farmers is livestock monitoring and asset tracking. Keeping an eye on all the animals can be laborious. With sensors like the WisNode TrackIt, it’s as easy as pulling up your phone and seeing the location of your cow Bessie on the other side of the ranch.

Sensors give us the tools we need to talk to our environment so we can do our work easily and efficiently.

Harvesting Smart Farming Data with IoT Gateways

IoT sensors are changing the game when it comes to the creation of smart applications, but none of these systems can exist without a proper gateway. Gateways are the middlemen that turn sensors from solitary devices to a full-fledged data system ready for end-users to utilize.

The first step in building IoT applications like these is to figure out what gateway to get. An indoor gateway is perfect for smart homes or offices while outdoor gateways are a must for setups that face changing weather conditions. For smart farming applications, a commercial gateway like the WisGate Edge Pro is your best bet.

The WisGate Edge Pro has all that you need to build smart farming applications: Industrial-grade components, PoE and surge protection, support for WiFi, GPS and LTE, and dual LoRa® concentrators that support up to 16 LoRa channels. With an out-of-the-box experience like no other, you can deploy LoRaWAN® smart farming solutions in a flash!

In a time when our environment is in dire need of support to give us our needs, it’s in our best interest to start implementing solutions that not only reduce our ecological footprint but help restore and sustain our world. Smart farming will help give us a future worth living for.
