Welsh expertise on show at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona
Feb 21, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Welsh expertise in mobile technology will be centre stage at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week
The Welsh Government is hosting a stand at this annual event -- one of the largest global events for the sector that attracts delegates from more than 205 countries worldwide, including 67,000 attendees, 1,500 exhibitors and more than 12,000 mobile app developers.
Wales based businesses and organisations attending the event (February 25 - 28) with support from the Welsh Government represent different sub sectors ranging from mobile app and software development to digital marketing and data analytics.
Business Minister Edwina Hart said:
"Welsh Government support is designed to help and encourage companies to internationalise and take advantage of opportunities in overseas markets.
"Our presence at the Mobile World Congress will also be used to promote Wales as a first class business location with the aim of attracting high value-added businesses to the sector in Wales."
Participants at the Congress include: Centre of Excellence in Mobile Applications and Services (CEMAS), Keima Wireless, Living Data, M7 Managed Services and Sequence.
CEMAS, established at the University of Glamorgan and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, is launching a Spanish language app that they have developed in partnership with Welsh SME DX Languages.
Dr Simon Chapman, Managing Director of Keima Wireless is addressing a session at Congress looking at Radio Spectrum, which is essential for future Mobile services. Dr Chapman, along with other guest speakers will look at some of the challenges related to Radio Spectrum, radio planning, RAN implementation and radio frequency network design.
Living Data is in the final stages of agreeing a design of what looks set to be a groundbreaking new town-led and town-owned free public wifi network, website and mobile app for the picturesque town of Tenby. It will be underpinned by a training programme to be led by Pembrokeshire College.
At last year's event M7 secured a contract to provide the IT infrastructure and support services for one of the largest UK telecoms' roll-outs in 2012, in partnership with a global independent software vendor (ISV).
At the Congress Managing Director Neil Cornish will showcase M7's partner services that provide hosted and customer-owned solutions to the telecommunications sector.
Cardiff based digital agency Sequence is currently working on the British and Irish Lions App due to be completed next month which is designed for use on Windows 8, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet and phones.
Sequence won the Microsoft Worldwide Partner 2012 award (Mobility Business-to-Consumer Application category) and has a number of high profile clients. It designed the website for Storm Models whose clients include models like Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford and created apps for numerous clients including a mobile app for Addison Lee, London's largest minicab company.
Keima and Living Data will also be attending the St David's Day reception hosted by First Minister Carwyn Jones in Barcelona.
