Mobile World Congress 2017

27 February - 2 March 2017
Fira Gran Via Conference Facility

Software is what helps telcos manage their network in an intelligent and automated way. Software is what turns a generic rack of server into a mobile telco, a landline operator or a big data backend. Software is what turns a home hub into an IoT Gateway, a file server or a voice control hub.

This year at Mobile World Congress (MWC), the world’s largest annual gathering for the mobile and telco industry, our booth will tell the story of how Ubuntu is at the very center of the world’s software-defined future. Drop by our stand, in Hall P3 – 3K31 to see our OpenStack, Kubernetes, 5G, NFV, network equipment, consumer IoT, enterprise IoT and Phone demos or book a meeting with our executive team.
