The Telecoms.com Podcast: Samsung, 5G, AI and Huawei

The guys are joined by special guest Dan Warren from Samsung in this week’s pod and start by getting his take on some of the main themes of the recent MWC show. Dan is head of 5G research at Samsung and so has forgotten more than Scott at least will ever know about the subject, but at least doesn’t think he’s entirely full of sh*t on the matter. Jamie picks his brains on the importance of edge computing, while Iain introduces the topic of open source and the elephant in the room that is Huawei is never far away.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Live from MWC 2019

Scott, Jamie and Iain take a moment to report from a bar in the middle of the Fira at Mobile World Congress 2019. They reflect on the biggest underlying themes of the show – spoiler alert: it’s 5G innit – and compare notes on their experiences, both during the days and long into the nights. As if that alone isn’t all the pod action you could ask for, they also get special guests Bengt Nordstrom and Mary Clark involved.

They compare experiences of the show itself and then discuss what are likely to be the major themes being discussed this year, including 5G phones and the mounting aggro between the US and China that Europe is stuck in the middle of.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Huawei, 6G and smartphones

It wouldn’t be a 2019 Telecoms.com podcast without a fair bit of chat about Huawei so the guys look to get it out of the way first this week. Then, just for a laugh, they decide to have a go at 6G even though 5G hasn’t even got going yet and we’ll let you determine whether or not that was a good idea. With MWC nearly upon us they conclude with a look at the smartphone market and wonder if it will ever surprise us again.
