MWC Los Angeles, Day 1 Recap

With more than 22,000 attendees, Mobile World Congress, Los Angeles is one of the most exciting events for our industry. Day 1 is in the books, and there’s already a lot going on – and not nearly enough space here to talk about it all.

From discussions with thought leaders in a variety of verticals to amazing educational sessions, we’re getting insights on a wide range of interesting and exciting IoT-related topics. KORE is also making some interesting announcements, sharing our thoughts, and hosting events that show the power of IoT. Here’s a recap of KORE activities so far:

Exciting Announcements

Today KORE unveiled three new, exciting solutions that will enable organizations to achieve their IoT goals more easily:

  • KORE One is an innovative IoT platform that delivers best-in-class technology, tools, and services to enable innovation, business agility, and speed-to-market for long-term IoT success. Its open, modular, and scalable architecture provides a future-proof foundation for services and solutions to build, manage, and deploy IoT solutions with ease.
  • SecurityPro provides network visibility and actionable intelligence to protect IoT devices and data by alerting on potential anomalies and mitigating security risks, positioning organizations to take quicker action and reducing the possibility of potential threats.
  • ConnectivityPro effectively manages, monitors, and controls IoT network connectivity across multiple carriers and satellite providers through a single user interface, creating the ability to remotely perform a wide range of functions that give organizations greater control over their network of devices.

Sharing Insight

KORE is participating in a number of thought leadership events, including today’s roundtable entitled, “Scaling the Internet of Intelligent Things,” which featured KORE President and CEO Romil Bahl and other distinguished executives from Deloitte, Cisco, Ericsson, Nokia, and Qualcomm. The discussion focused on how businesses can ensure their intelligent IoT solutions are safe and reliable and offered strategies to future-proof IoT solutions to allow true scalability.

Tomorrow, I’ll be participating in the “Digital Transformation from Ideation to Reality” panel discussion from 1:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. PT at room 403A, Concourse Level 2. The group will explore ways to overcome common challenges faced in the digital transformation and IoT implementation process, with real-life insights and best practices for bringing connected to solutions to life from ideation all the way to fruition.

Additionally, Romil will present “How to: Navigate the Fragmented IoT Ecosystem,” on Thursday from 10:00-10:30 a.m. PT, at the IoT Talks Theater - South Hall, Stand 3147.

 

Promoting Sustainability

Yesterday, KORE, along with GSMA, was proud to present a Living Wall to the NEW Academy of Science and Art Learning Center (NASA), a Los Angeles elementary school focused on academic and artistic achievement in the arts and sciences. The event underscores KORE and GSMA’s continued dedication to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

As the name suggests, the Living Wall is covered with live vegetation that utilizes IoT technology to self-irrigate with the perfect amount of water and enables 95 percent plant survival rates. It offers the many benefits plants provide with a fraction of the water, maintenance, and cost.


Now it’s time to catch our breath and get ready for Day 2. If you’re interested in learning more about KORE and hearing our thoughts on any number of IoT-related topics, visit us at stand 2328. For a more in-depth discussion, book a meeting with one of our experts - but hurry - only a few time slots remain. Otherwise, just drop on by, check out the wall, and taste the future of IoT innovation (in the form of a delicious, gourmet cookie). We'll see you there!
