Highlights from MWC 2022

Shifting consumer, technology and business model trends have dramatically impacted the communications industry – redefining the way service providers go to market and approach their own technologies. To address this industry shift and to power their future, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) need to activate new paths to growth while accelerating their digital transformation journeys.

As GSMA’s exclusive MWC Industry City Knowledge Partner for 2022, Accenture was excited to bring this conversation live to MWC Barcelona. Numerous Accenture speakers were on stage over the four days, sharing their thought leadership on the topics ranging from Cloud, AI to Quantum Comms and how the fintech, manufacturing, health and travel industries are shaping the future of connectivity and leveraging the power of 5G. Our immersive client experiences featuring cross-services, partner-powered solutions covered the Metaverse, New paths to growth, 5G acceleration, network and service transformation.
