Mobile World Congress Service Provider Survey Results

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

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?

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.
