Telecom Council members debrief the news and announcements from CTIA Super Mobility 2016 led by industry analyst Derek Kerton.
Silicon Valley, California, Sep 15 2016/Meeting Recap/ Setting aside the definite downscaling of CTIA Supermobility as it passes the baton to the new GSMA Mobile World Congress Americas, which will replace the show next year, it was appropriate that Telecom Council’s 5G meeting followed this debrief when much of the buzz at CTIA was 5G and IoT.
On the IoT side, Smart Cities and Smart Homes and a plethora of retail products dominated, with a cooling off for Connected Cars and Wearables. 5G presence indicated the US as the industry leader with Nokia and Qualcomm delivering keynotes extolling 5G as the “unifying connecting fabric” of future communications.
Thanks to Qualcomm for hosting us and to our members for the lively discussion. Members can log on to the Library to view Derek’s slides and notes from the meeting.
