Keynote 4: Exploring the Mobile Cloud

A session at Mobile World Congress 2012

  • John Chambers
  • Rene Obermann
  • Ryuji Yamada

Tuesday 28th February, 2012

11:00am to 12:30pm (WET)

As individuals and enterprises become increasingly mobile, the demand for online storage, delivery and access of content and availability of services is exploding. This is a mobile cloud world, a world where one’s entire life must be accessible remotely and instantly from any device of choice. In this scenario, players across the industry, including regulators, must collaborate to address the challenges of technological reliability, online privacy, user safety as well as cultural barriers. In the end, users’ demand to have personal clouds, be it for entertainment or work, will pose a number of challenges for all participants in the ecosystem, including governments.

How will the mobile industry deliver a seamless service experience while dealing with this new paradigm where all our content is stored online? Where are we in terms of readiness and ability to offer reliable and affordable cloud services? And which are the biggest hurdles to overcome as these services become widely adopted worldwide?

CEOs from across the value chain will discuss the future of the mobile cloud, its requirements and drivers, and innovations we can expect to see in the coming years.
