The Telecoms.com Podcast: Rakuten Mobile, Big 5G Event and Ericsson

The lads are delighted to welcome special guest Geoff Hollingworth, CMO of Rakuten Symphony, this week. Unsurprisingly they start by discussing all things Rakuten, including its entry into mobile and the creation of Symphony. Everyone on the pod except Scott was at the Big 5G Event in the US last week so they move on to a review of that, before finishing with a quick look at the latest Ericsson news.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: MWC, Ericsson and Ukraine

We’re back in the studio and reunited with Iain this week. Seeing as they weren’t able to pod together at the show, the lads start with a recap of Mobile World Congress. They move on to talk about the awkward situation Ericsson has found itself in over its historical activities in Iraq before concluding with a look at the implications for the telecoms industry in the Ukraine conflict.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Live from MWC 2022

This special episode of the pod was recorded on the Orange stand at Mobile World Congress 2022 so, technically, it’s not ‘live’ but you know what we mean. Scott decides to tag-team three guests and starts by chatting to Phillipe Lucas of Orange to get his impressions of this first full version of the show for three years. That line of conversation is carried over to friend of the Pod Mary Clark and then Telecoms.com Deputy Editor Andrew Wooden, with Iain Morris of Light Reading apparently having better things to do than turn up.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: MWC 2022 preview

After being blown off course by hurricane Dave last week, the lads return for a special episode devoted to anticipating the major themes of Mobile World Congress next week. Inevitably 5G will dominate, with the pandemic-induced three-year gap between shows offering the opportunity to reflect on progress made over that time. Not many people were talking about OpenRAN and public cloud at MWC 19, but those technologies will be prominent this year, so they anticipate those chats too.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: OpenRAN, roaming and Huawei

After an extended break due to Christmas and Omicron, the lads are back in the studio. They start with an assessment of the Rona situation as we start the year and what that means for MWC. The main segments have a forward-looking feel, starting with a look at the prospects for OpenRAN and specifically Rakuten’s role in it. They move on to discuss the dilemma UK operators face regarding the reintroduction of roaming charges before concluding with a look at Huawei’s prospects.
