Today is day 4 – the final day of MWC 2016!  Day 4 may be shortest day as the event closes at 4 PM CET, but the booth will still be full of visitors, demonstrations and meetings. 

Throughout the conference, we’ve recorded a number of interviews and demonstrations! All that great video content along with slideware from the booth will be available on the InterDigital Vault following the event. In the meantime, check out some snapshots from days 1 – 3:

After a great first two days, we’re ready for day three at MWC ’16. Our demo stations and meeting rooms have been full, and visitors are really enjoying the showcase of 5G and IoT technologies at the booth this year! And to add to excellent booth traffic, The Mañaners energetic performance packed the house yesterday evening. Here are just a few photos from the action yesterday:

We are also involved outside of the booth!

The luncheon titled, “The Path to 5G: What Operators Need to do to Prepare for the Network of the Future,” will feature a panel discussion that explores the 5G vision and disruptive new technologies that are emerging in new spectrum bands such as millimeter wave.
