    Published on:

    Vodafone Stand (Hall 3, Stand 3E11) Mobile World Congress (MWC), 27 February – 2 March 2023.

    Vodafone invites visitors to its stand at MWC 2023 to enter Vodafone’s metaverse and fly a real 5G-connected drone in Seville, 830 kilometers away, using Meta Quest Pro Virtual Reality (VR) headsets.

    The Metaverse Drone is one of a series of new network application programmable interfaces (APIs) being developed by Vodafone. The network API is a set of rules based on industry-wide open standards that allow developers to plug in the low-latency benefits, speed and scale of Vodafone’s pan-European 5G network (covering nearly 350 towns and cities). can be used as Safe user interface.

    Built by Vodafone developers, the Metaverse API can be used by emergency services to control drones to deliver critical medical supplies to congested areas. Other uses include farmers inspecting extensive perimeter fences and energy companies safely checking power lines in remote locations. Vodafone’s 5G network will provide consumer and enterprise customers with a wide range of metaverse services, including gaming and entertainment, navigation, remote assistance and maintenance, and his AR/XR services for immersive shopping.

    In addition, Vodafone offers third-party developers a secure and easy way to create their own significant new services through APIs that allow access to the extended capabilities of Vodafone’s network. The focus of these APIs will be Vodafone’s new Developer Marketplace. https://developer.vodafone.comopened today for developers to sign up for news about new API releases coming later this year.

    The Vodafone Developer Marketplace includes Vodafone’s own services such as broadband boost, online banking fraud detection, and smartphone battery life extension, as well as removing all the network complexity and enabling third-party developers to build their own revenue-generating applications. Includes services that make it easier to create And cheap. Vodafone expects the market to spur the release of many new apps with social or environmental purposes. For example, an app that uses anonymized and aggregated network location data to improve public transport links.

    Creating a more sustainable future through technological innovation and cutting-edge digital business products and services is Vodafone’s central theme at MWC. Its stands are arranged in his five zones: Greener Together, Greener Foundations, Greener Today and Tomorrow, and Core.

    Eco-friendly together – Focusing on a strategic partnership, Vodafone and AST SpaceMobile will demonstrate how they intend to jointly offer the first-ever space-based mobile broadband service accessible via standard smartphones. No other satellite service currently does this. Visitors will also have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of an Extreme E electric SUV that has been raced in some of the most remote places in the world. All of this is connected via the latest Vodafone technology.

    A greener foundation – Dashboard highlights Vodafone’s commitment to net zero by 2040. This includes initiatives by Vodafone Business such as renewable power purchase agreements and solar power in company offices and mobile cell towers. Vodafone is also leveraging its global Internet of Things (IoT) platform with 155 million connections to provide communities with early warning of bushfires and floods, as well as state-of-the-art technology that provides real-time air quality measurements. We are exhibiting connected applications.

    greener today – Vodafone showcases two of its latest global platforms. Safer Transport for Europe Platform (STEP) is a cloud-based platform designed to improve road safety in Europe by enabling data sharing between governments, transport authorities, car manufacturers and mobility service providers. In addition to this, it will be one of Vodafone’s Digital Asset Broker (DAB) solutions that allow electric vehicle (EV) drivers to charge their vehicles using a single app on their mobile device.

    Visitors can also see how satellite imagery and artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to assess the health and inventory of trees in cities to improve the management and conservation of green spaces in cities.

    a green tomorrow – Some of the services shown have network slicing. A key feature of 5G Standalone (5GSA) networks, Vodafone can create multiple virtual networks (“slices”) on the same infrastructure. Examples of applications that benefit from network slicing include telesurgery, AR/VR, enhanced event experiences, cloud gaming, smart cities, and industry 4.0 applications.

    core – MWC would not be complete without a new Open Radio Area Networks (Open RAN) update. Vodafone will reveal key advances being made to improve the maturity, security and energy efficiency of Open RAN. This includes building on Vodafone’s existing urban deployment in the UK (first in Europe), further preparing Open RAN for wider deployment in populated towns and cities, and working with national authorities on security. This includes strengthening cooperation and increasing the energy efficiency of all components.

    Vodafone’s 5G network is a powerful tool to support, enhance and enable business and consumer innovation. At the forefront of this innovation is the world’s first prototype 5G network built on a Raspberry Pi that was showcased at MWC. This will allow customers to have their own low-cost, private, high-speed mobile his broadband network (see separate release).
