VIAVI Solutions Withdraws from MWC Barcelona 2021
After careful consideration, VIAVI has chosen to cancel plans to participate in this year’s MWC Barcelona event based on our assessment of the expected state of the Covid-19 pandemic across Europe this summer. While we do appreciate the precautionary measures put into place by the GSMA, our utmost priority is to protect the health and well-being of our employees, customers and partners — particularly given the international nature of the event.
As a leader in network test and measurement, VIAVI is well aware of the powerful impact of in-person events, and we can’t wait to resume them. We were proud to exhibit at MWC Shanghai, and to participate in O-RAN ALLIANCE demonstrations as part of that event. We look forward to working closely with GSMA and industry partners on future events.
We will be contacting customers and other stakeholders that we intended to meet at the show to arrange alternative means to showcase our expanding RAN to Core portfolio to help network operators master and monetize the 5G opportunity in order to:
- Ensure maximum production yield and interoperability with a complete test and measurement platform for the full network lifecycle
- Maximize field technician efficiency by driving test process automation to accelerate deployment and simplify network management
- Identify and monetize new revenue streams with solutions for assuring, optimizing and monetizing 5G with 3D-aware location intelligence and converged assurance across RAN & Core.
