Irish firms advance smart connectivity at Mobile World Congress America

As mobile technology becomes the central element of connected commercial and consumer industries from automotive to smart home to digital health, Irish firms are building ground-breaking new technologies and partnering with the world’s biggest brands. Here at Mobile World Congress Americas, Irish advances include indoor location and communication technologies; software to securely connect cars on high-speed LTE networks; advanced antenna for smart city/automotive, MNO platform solutions, small cell, 5G innovations and embedded and secure IoT technologies. All of this technology, from an array of category-leading Irish brands will appear at the Enterprise Ireland booth (West Hall W912) at Mobile World Congress Americas at the Los Angeles Convention Center taking place from September 12 to 14, 2018.

“We don’t make the handset, the network or the car but we’re enabling connectivity, autonomy and exciting applications and experiences for each,” noted Sara Hill, Senior Vice President of Advanced Technologies, Enterprise Ireland. “Our pioneering client companies are key partners to leading brands in telecommunications, automotive, IT and smart city infrastructure and are now critical to the ecosystems that these brands operate on and the value that they provide.”

Enterprise Ireland, the Irish state agency for the international development of Irish businesses, is a major source of strategic venture capital in the European telecommunications, semiconductor, connected and automated vehicle (CAV) sectors. The organization also co-funds pure research in these sectors and facilitates strategic partnerships between Irish firms and global brands operating in these markets.

“Enterprise Ireland and our client companies have invested heavily in areas such as 5G, IoT and edge computing — likely the key narratives here at Mobile World Congress Americas — so you can expect a new wave of innovations, connections and commercial partnerships stemming from this show over the years to come,” Hill continued.
