It's February, the snow won't let up, and thoughts of tapas, small cells, and the crowded streets of Las Ramblas are uppermost in my mind. It can only mean one thing -- it's almost time for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
If you're going to the show as well, we'd probably love to meet up, but before you pitch Ray on mobile games or Dan Jones on Ethernet, we thought it'd be useful to let you know what key topics we're interested in at the show. It's not an exhaustive list, but, much like the network operators, these coverage areas are our top priorities.
So here are our key players and what they're keen on. If you're a good fit, reach out! If not, no hard feelings. We hope to bump into you on the show floor -- or the bar -- either way.
