The Telecom Review staff has now returned from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain and I must say that it was very impressive! There were in excess of 60,000 attendees and many new product announcements were made that we will be highlighting for our readers. Telecom Review was a media sponsor for the event so we were especially busy meeting new business contacts and saying hello to existing business contacts.
This month’s issue has a very special exclusive interview with Hans Vestberg, the Global CEO of Ericsson. More than 40% of the world’s mobile traffic passes through equipment provided by Ericsson so we felt that it was especially compelling to provide our readers with insight into the man who leads this company! He is a very well spoken person who has a very global view of the industry, as you might expect from someone who is the CEO of Ericsson.
In addition, this issue brings a special interview with the President and CEO of Telstra International Americas, Will Hughs. Telstra International is a well known and growing company that has a very strong international presence across the Pacific Rim. Will is a very engaging person who provided some very good insight into this rapidly growing market.
Spring is just around the corner and that means that it is time for the spring Comptel show. Telecom Review is a media sponsor for the event and we look forward to meeting you there in San Francisco!
