  • 9 mths ago

In conjunction with MWC Barcelona 2022 which will be taking place from the 28th of February to the 3rd of March, Tara Neal, Executive Editor of The Fast Mode spoke to Alexis Susset, Vice President of Global Product and EU Sales, Soracom on the company's plans and showcases for this year's event.

Tara: What do youthink MWC 2022 will be all about? And what are your MWC 2022 plans?

Alexis: IoT especially is reaching a new level of maturity, with more and more use cases and supporting technologies reaching broader market understanding. We are seeing IoT products moving into a full understanding of their value chain. With IoT-driven LPWAN, LTE-M and NB-IoT networks as well as 5G reaching widespread deployments, we look forward to MWC 2022 as the place where the providers building this new connectivity ecosystem can come together to advance technologies for users around the world. 

Soracom will take advantage of MWC 2022 to connect again with our ecosystem of providers, partners and customers and continue to develop solutions that address both low-data use cases such as Smart Health, Payments, Asset Tracking, and Facility Management as well as high-data end use cases such as Autonomous Vehicles and Connected Cameras. We understand the crucial role that IT plays in successful IoT projects, and this is supported by platform software layers providing these integration points. This is our focus for MWC 2022.

Tara: How has the pandemic impacted the operational and business landscape of the tech segment you are operating in?

Alexis: While social distancing and travel restrictions have slowed some deployments, we have also seen accelerated adoption of IoT technologies in many categories, especially those related to the connected health and digital payment spaces. These use cases have become ever more important as the world has adapted to take on the challenge of a global pandemic. As adoption of IoT technology has grown around the world, we have also seen supply chain pressure related to the production of chipsets to support this demand. This has been true in the IoT space and continues to be a challenge where production of devices may currently be constrained relative to demand.
