  13. 13. The Catalunya tourist board offered virtual tours of the region The Eye Tribe SK Telecom Samsung Ford VR Experience 3. Most important trends of MWC Trends 1 : Virtual Reality is everywhere (and Augmented Reality is coming)  Virtually reality has dominated nearly every corner of the MWC :  VR Headset : Samsung, HTC, LG, Alcatel, Google, etc  VR 360 Camera : Sony, LG, Samsung, etc  A lot of VR (AR) demonstration :  Security firm Gemalto had its own VR demo for the Internet of Things  Industrial AR helmet from Fujitsu  2 companies showing modified Gear VR (Sensomotoric) and Oculus headset (The Eye Tribe) with eye-tracking capabilities  Trip in a helicopter and a connected car to fix a burst water pipe (AT&T)  Trip in a submarine and a ski jump (SK Telecom)  Gear VR Theater with 4D (Samsung)  Car experience (Ford)  Project Tango demonstration that could let you buy your next car using AR (Google)  etc  The scale of virtual reality's presence was a big surprise
  14. 14. Timotheus Höttges Zuckerberg 3. Most important trends of MWC Trends 1 : Virtual Reality is everywhere  About VR opportunities :  Facebook CEO Zuckerberg said : “VR is the next platform, where anyone can create and experience anything they want” & “"Right now, virtual reality is mostly used for games and entertainment, but that’s quickly evolving. One day you’ll be able to put on a headset that’ll change the way you live, work and communicate”  Vodafone CEO Vittorio Colao said : “Training at companies will cost a lot less when people can do it from behind their virtual-reality headset” - “Education more broadly could benefit from these new tools” -“It’ll be used for entertainment and gaming of course, but most importantly training”  Deutsche Telekom CEO Timotheus Höttges said : “You may have heard about robotic surgery, but so far, the technology isn’t really virtual because in most instances, the doctor steering the thing usually sits right there or, at best, in the next room. Timotheus Höttges is convinced that once super-fast 5G mobile networks are commercially available, reduced latency will enable the best doctors to operate patients that are half a world away. And there are many more potential use cases, said CEO Tim Hoettges. “Think about the architect, think about the retail store, think about fashion,” he said. “Everything could be virtualized" Vittorio Colao
  15. 15. 3. Most important trends of MWC Trends 1 : Virtual Reality is everywhere  About VR adoption : Virtual reality first entered Gartner's annual hype cycle chart in 2013 Gartner's 2015 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies Virtual reality Augustus 2015 (Gartner) :  « Peak of inflated expectations »  « Mass market »in 5-10 years Now, after CES 2016 (with 40 VR demonstration according Bloomberg) & MWC 2016 Show, VR is in the “slope of enlightenment”  “More instances of how the technology can benefit the enterprise start to crystallize and become more widely understood. Second- and third-generation products appear from technology providers. More enterprises fund pilots; conservative companies remain cautious“ (Gartner)
  16. 16. 3. Most important trends of MWC Trends 2 : 4.5G booming in 2016 & 5G to trigger disruption  Tony Kau, Director of Strategic Marketing, Mobile Business Unit at Micron Technology “The next- generation 5G mobile network promises a future of ubiquitous, ultra-high- speed wireless connectivity, offering throughput up to 50 times faster than existing 4G networks. 5G latency -- the delay between your request for data and when your mobile device receives it -- will be at least 5 times better than 4G latency. 5G will unlock incredible possibilities for multimedia and video experiences, as well as other innovative user experiences.”  Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) said at MWC that he hoped VR would be one of the "killer applications of 5G." Data transfers so quickly that you won't have to wait long for virtual experience to load on your mobile VR headset.  Huawei said “4G networks do not provide the support that virtual reality and 4K/8K ultra-HD video require. 4.5G's gigabit-level speed and superior cell capacity mean that it can accommodate the huge demand for these services, so 4.5G will make immersive experiences an everyday occurrence.”  De la Vega, Vice-Chairman of AT&T said “that 5G would cause disruption to many industries, included his own company.” “Operators are moving towards software-based solutions instead of buying more ‘boxes’. Our own network will transition to SDN as part of our shift away from hardware.”  “Telemedicine becomes feasible with 5G, whose communication lag is brief enough to permit doctors to perform some procedures remotely”, said Matt Grob, CTO of mobile-chip maker Qualcomm
  17. 17. 3. Most important trends of MWC Trends 3 : Internet of Things explosion  A lot of companies including Intel, Dell and SAP were among those demonstrating their newest connected devices :  Ambi Labs « Intelligent Air Conditioning » : App that lets users manage their air conditioners from their smartphone, as well as track their air conditioning on graphs to gain a deeper understanding of their AC usage over time”  SAP's IoT agricultural application that allow businesses to deliver geospatial situational awareness applications for digital farming  Libelium's Sensory Platform: Sensor solutions which power solutions for smart cities and have applications such as parking and traffic congestion management, environmental monitoring, as well as air and water quality control  Intel's Recon Jet Headset contains GPS, gyro sensors and Bluetooth technology to track users and show information during the workout  Qualcomm Products For Smart Cities, Oral-B Genius Smart Toothbrush, Acer Cloud Professor IoT Development Kit, SK Telecom's IoT ThingPlug Platform, stylish smart bracelet Halo, connectivity technology SYNC 3 (Ford), etc  "Definitely we've seen more of a push to an Internet of Things ecosystem. We're seeing more articulation around this story of the potential of what they could do and all the devices it could benefit, from the fridge to the wearable" said Roberta Cozza (Gartner) SAP Intel Qualcomm Halo Ambi Labs
  18. 18. Mastercard Samsung Pay 3. Most important trends of MWC Trends 4 : Major announcements from mobile payments players  Visa announced Visa Ready Program : a new program for connected devices makers to let them integrate secure payment features into their products. This program will focus on payments for wearables, home appliances, clothing, automobiles and other Iot companies "By adding payments to these devices, we are turning virtually any Internet connection into a commerce experience — making secure payments seamless, and ultimately more accessible, to merchants and consumers“ said Jim McCarthy, executive vice president of innovation and strategic partnerships at Visa  Mastercard, (which already has a wearables initiative), said it planned to launch a ‘selfie pay’ feature, that would let users perform security checks using a selfie  Samsung Pay will be available in more major markets this year : Brazil, Singapore, Spain, the UK and Canada (already in China, US, South Korea)  PayPal to add NFC payments to Android app. The announcement follows PayPal’s partnership with Vodafone to allow Vodafone Wallet users across Europe to make NFC payments with their mobile phone Paypal Visa
  19. 19. 3. Most important trends of MWC Trends 5 : Privacy and security of devices, data and networks  Nokia revealed that it has acquired Canadian network security company Nakina Systems, in an evident effort to give a boost to its 5G and IoT aspirations  BlackBerry launches new professional cybersecurity services by offering organizations new consulting services, tools and best practices to assess and thwart ever-changing cybersecurity risks  “At MWC and into 2016, an important differentiator will become security and data privacy. Even consumers with little interest or understanding of technology will see news stories about hacked devices and companies, and as a result will look to be reassured about how secure their personal data is, but also how far that data will be ‘legally’ shared with other companies,” said Jim Bailey senior managing director, Accenture  “Low power and security is key for NFC wearable designs”, says ARM  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg backs Apple in its battle with the FBI over Iphone Privacy. “I don’t think requiring backdoors into encryption is either going to be an effective way to increase security or is really the right thing to do for the direction the world is going in. So, yeah, we’re pretty sympathetic with Tim and Apple on this one,” said Zuckerberg  Kester Mann, principal analyst at CCS Insight, said that ‘’privacy and security are becoming increasingly important and are “hugely topical given recent high-profile breaches, such as at TalkTalk and Ashley Madison”
