“When dreams start coming true …”

By Nick Watson, Vice President EMEA Enterprise Group, HP Networking


Nick Watson.pngThis week, Mobile World Congress gets underway. 

At centre stage is the push by the Operators towards standards and simplification, which is essential to improving operating cost efficiency as these giant networks experience dramatic growth.  Costs need to remain in check if networks are to keep up with the demand of mobile devices and the use we now routinely put them to, with messages, voice, video; often all in a single “conversation”.
