Mobile World Congress is arguably the most important annual industry event in the communications sector calendar these days, not least because mobile/wireless technology, application and device developments are (perhaps more arguably) the most important to those involved in the modern-day global communications industry. So this year the Light Reading editorial team decided that, ahead of the Barcelona show, we would court the opinions of our service provider readers by asking them a few relatively simple questions. We did this in the hope that the (anonymous) responses would provide us with a simple snapshot of some service provider perceptions about various technologies and developments that we believe are relevant to those attending the show. We first shared these insights with the folks who came to our mixer on Tuesday night, but now we're opening them up for everyone else. So, here are those results in all their glory. We hope they provide some food for thought. — The Staff, Light Reading

re: Mobile World Congress Service Provider Survey Results
What if a smartphone was capable of WebRTC and ran on the Mozilla Firefox OS? (See Dan's article here: http://www.lightreading.com/bl...

Then you could (possibly) do all the major features of Skype and other OTT apps -- all delivered by a functional, low cost handset.

Am I reading too much into this?

@ubm_techweb_disqus_sso_-029803a2a9fd38419340ee10b7bebcc1:disqus-á WebRTC helps SPs extend their reach OTT, for sure: your phone number can now reach you anywhere you have a web browser.-á All that's required is a modified session border controller that can do SIP-over-WebSockets on the web-facing side (or possibly a REST-based call control API for those who prefer it).

re: Mobile World Congress Service Provider Survey Results
Could someone please clarify what providers need to do for webRTC? -áIt seems to be it was designed to work OTT.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
