Engaging with stakeholders - BEREC Chair Gungl at the Mobile World Congress 2018

27 February 2018

5G is the main topic at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain this week. Being the 5G enabler in Europe, BEREC Chair Johannes Gungl engages with all the stakeholders at the congress: "It is definitely an opportunity to listen to and to learn from each other. I think we all have similar challenges ahead like spectrum availability, speed of network roll-out or creating sufficient demand. So the dialogue is crucial for all of us."

For the take up of demand it is also crucial to have more and more convincing use cases. Thus, Gungl discusses the business cases of telecom operators for 5G: "I expect to get a clearer picture about where the opportunities are lying for the telcos. It will be up to the regulators to do their part in order to help enabling these business cases."

The GSMA Mobile World Congress is a yearly four-day event in Barcelona, Spain. It gathers more than 108,000 mobile professionals from all over the world to shape the future of mobile communication.
