  • ADVERTORIALMWC12 Daily DAY1_DAY1 23/02/2012 14:13 Page 5 Redefining Mobile – Marcelo Claure, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Brightstar A Deliberate Pursuit The concept of “redefining” entails changing definitions and setting new expectations. As our industry matures there is a need to sharpen our offerings. This also means broadening our boundaries in the midst of a rapidly shifting environment. I believe the act of redefining our industry is a deliberate pursuit. I know this because I have had the opportunity to see Brightstar transform from a local cell phone distribution company to the worlds largest wireless distributor and a leader in global wireless services Insights from the Wireless Frontier in our industry. This transformation can be attributed to the continuous “redefinition” of our ultimate goal: to stay ahead of industry trends and drive value to our customers despite the unpredictability and volatility of our industry. How have we been able to accomplish this? By fostering and applying four key principles we have discovered through our journey: 1. Exploring new territory – By that I mean moving outside the current boundaries of wireless to include new, and perhaps unexplored concepts. Banking, commerce, and healthcare are just a few of the latest industries merging with mobile. Together they are creating the possibility of mobile x-rays, telemedicine for patients, the idea of a mobile wallet and much more that will present new markets and opportunities. For example, 4. Anticipating the effect – A significant part of our industry focuses on the introduction of new Juniper Research predicts the market for all types of mobile payments will reach $600 products and their capabilities. While this is always exciting, the true “redefining” of our billion by 2013. By broadening our vision and redrawing the “border lines” we are able to industry takes place when we understand the relationship between cause and effect and how explore these new possibilities and redefine the mobile industry landscape. we can respond strategically to our customer’s demands.

We champion change. We honor Strategically positioned at the center of the wireless ecosystem, Brightstar has certainly modernization. Indeed, this year’s MWC campaign is no different - we are benefited from knowledge sharing with more than 12,000 retailers, 200 manufacturers, The ability to redefine is integral to the success of any participant in the wireless industry. Today, “Redefining Mobile.” 210 operators and 6,400 value-added resellers. These relationships allow us to better manufacturers are required to adapt to a new consumer, providing services that were unheard of understand each environment within the ecosystem and provide the seamless experience several years ago.

Wireless will world of mobility and how is it adapting to provide solutions for new challenges while always mean something different to people in different parts of the world, and maintaining those already offered? understanding these differences is vital to applying what we learn from each other. While Brightstar is taking a proactive role in the evolution of the industry and today’s redefinition of we bring some of the most advanced technology to the farthest corners of the globe, it is mobile. We are leveraging our foundation as the world’s largest specialized wireless distributor local knowledge and expertise that makes it meaningful and effective there.

Today, the exponential growth of digitized information, combined with the skyrocketing popularity of mobile networks, has led to a surge in the sheer volume of digital content. Concurrently, as the digital divide has become smaller, people around the world are now able to freely share Connected information and communicate with each other with fewer barriers. This new round of network and technological transformations is marked by an important new factor – user experience, which drives industry development and leads to a more flourishing information era. In todays world, millions of services and applications are close at hand, enabling a constant, 24-hour online digital life. The ongoing pursuit of better user experience drives the development of information socialization.

In fact, LTE networks are already being deployed on a large scale across the globe. The GSA forecasts that 91 commercial LTE networks will be in service by the end of 2012. In the LTE era, as air interface rates further increase and RNCs disappear, wireless network architecture will be simplified, while a flattened transport network architecture is likely to provide greater bandwidth. However, LTE networks, compared with GSM and UMTS, have some new requirements for the transport network. Mobile Broadband With LTE networks, more accessible FE and GE ports function as the network interface, rather than dedicated E1 ports, while small cells and CSGs are likely deployed in unsecured GIGASITE BACKHAUL locations, and user data encryption is terminated at eNodeB instead of at the RNC. Therefore, these networks are vulnerable to attacks and security threats.

Yet analysts say MNOs have been slow to adapt to the fast-changing market environment, and have lagged behind in the race to unlock the ‘second trillion dollars of value in the mobile communications industry.’ Anne Morris reports. ccording to Jagdish Rebello, senior A director and principal analyst at IHS iSuppli, MNOs are uniquely positioned to capitalise on mobile broadband opportunities, such as tiered pricing plans, cloud services, mobile commerce and wireless mesh sensor networking of the Internet of Things. “The cloud is clearly a fast emerging market segment that provides new revenue growth opportunities for MNOs,” Rebello said in a report on mobile operator business models published in late 2011. “Besides enterprise Mohr-McClune stressed that the biggest Belarus-based mobile operator JLLC “We are also interested in cloud applications, the consumer cloud market problem for carriers is in attempting to Mobile TeleSystems (MTS Belarus) said it consumer cloud services is also poised for explosive growth as social breach the large innovation lead gained by started its cloud strategy with enterprise networking becomes increasingly a part of the the Apple iCloud product. software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions because the number of digital lifestyle.

Bret Taylor CTO Overall, the apps business is booming; Gartner forecasts US$15.9 billion end-user spend on apps in 2012. But reports also suggest Facebook that half of apps make less than US$3k each. Given the months of work that can go into producing an app, this kind of return on investment can’t be sustainable long term. How should the apps ecosystem evolve to support development? This session will look at two sides of the app equation: first, the money question – what is the most sustainable way to build an apps business model? And second, a discussion of how the world works for developers and a look at the type of apps that are out there changing the way we live. All details correct at the time of going to print.
