MWC Barcelona 2024: A Recap of Key Highlights

This year, VISICOM represented Ukraine at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona 2024, which took place from February 26 to 29. This is a key event for the telecommunications sector, demonstrating revolutionary innovations and collaborative efforts to shape the future of mobile communications.

Our impressions: over these four days, MWC 2024 immersed us in the world of cutting-edge technological innovations. Engaging with industry leaders and witnessing the presentation of revolutionary technologies left unforgettable memories.

VISICOM, the sole Ukrainian company, made its mark at the MWC Barcelona 2024 exhibition, showcasing Ukraine's achievements in telecommunications infrastructure planning and optimization. We believe that VISICOM's presence as the sole representative of Ukraine underscored the country's growing significance on the global telecommunications stage.

Together with our partners from the USA, Boodmoe, we presented our digital cartographic products for 5G network planning and smart city development, along with state-of-the-art algorithms for processing geodata using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs):

  • Digital Terrain Model and Digital Surface Model
  • 2D and 3D Building Footprints
  • 3D Vegetation
  • 2.5D Models
  • 2D Land Use/Clutter
  • 2D and 2.5D solution for nationwide coverage
  • Population Maps
  • High-Precision Roads and Infrastructure Data
  • Hydrography

VISICOM's 2D and 3D geodata produced from the latest satellite imagery result in detailed, reliable, and accurate maps of the real world. 

Our customized high-quality digital models empower telecom companies to significantly enhance project performance, facilitating RF-spectrum management, spatial calculations, and spectrum monitoring. The extensive off-the-shelf (OTS) data catalog provides customers with rapid access to geographic data for any region, meeting diverse technical requirements.

The main global trends we noted were networking, cooperation and the search for joint solutions to global problems in the telecoms and technology market. The exhibition featured pavilions from 35 countries, with 2,700 representatives taking part. The total number of visitors reached 101,000 over 4 days. It is worth noting that 59% of the visitors were related to the mobile sector, which makes this exhibition particularly relevant for the telecoms market. Over 1,100 speakers and opinion leaders spoke at the exhibition over the 4 days, which means that every exhibitor or visitor could find a relevant topic and listen to a speaker.

The main topics that resonated throughout the exhibition were:

  • 5G and beyond 
  • Connecting everything
  • Humanizing AI
  • Manufacturing DX
  • Game changers
  • Our digital DNA 

It is worth noting that Ukrainian projects have received significant recognition at MWC Barcelona 2024, winning awards for innovation and impact.
