Mobile Europe & European Communications Q1 Survey

Mobile Europe & European Communications has launched its Q1 survey to explore which technologies will dominate the year ahead.

Will 2019 be dominated by 5G or will it be the year artificial intelligence hits the mobile mainstream? What’s 5G for? Is it all over for NFV before it really began? And what’s happened to IoT?

Have your say right now to help us shape our latest report, published in the Q1 issue of Mobile Europe and European Communications.
