HPE at Mobile World Congress 2018: Accelerating your success at the Intelligent Edge

Barcelona_Graphic_MWC18.jpgFor decades, Mobile World Congress (MWC) has been the leading event within the telecommunications industry. In our digital transformation era where the lines between telecom and IT are blurring, MWC is evolving into a critical event for the technology industry at large. Digital transformation, fueled by the explosion of apps and data, is creating a world where everything computes and communications service providers (CSPs) must adapt to compete in this faster, more intelligent world. MWC 2018 will bring together 108,000 attendees and showcase 2300 technology demos, enabling high-level executives, thought leaders, and technical experts to drive innovation forward and accelerate what is next for mobile. Join Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) at MWC 2018 in booth 3E11 from February 26 to March 1 in Barcelona to learn how you can capitalize on the opportunities created by digital transformation and how partnering with HPE can help propel your business further, faster.


To future-proof networks for 5G, while also providing the engaging, personal, seamless experiences that subscribers have come to expect, CSPs need the right mix of innovations in the data center, the cloud, and the intelligent edge. This combination of innovations will enable CSPs to optimize their current connectivity-based offers to improve service and reduce cost while creating value from new, innovative operating models, the Internet of Things (IoT), and streaming media services. Learn how HPE can accelerate your network from core to edge to cloud at MWC 2018!
