News analysis for Monday 27 February

Join TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels, Ray Le Maistre and Yanitsa Boyadzhieva for our first dedicated news show of the week, when we bring you the most important breaking news and discuss the latest industry announcements.

On today’s show, MWC23 opens its doors in Barcelona as the industry’s leading event returns for another year. Organised by the GSMA, the association used the keynote session to announce its Open Gateway initiative, designed to connect enterprise developers with the mobile network. Developments such as this are critical to CSPs, as they look to new sources of revenue while trying to manage capital intensity, as HPE’s CFO explains. We also hear from Intel on why vRAN deployments don’t need accelerators to achieve performance gains, and Nokia’s CEO (literally) unveils his company’s new brand identity. All this plus some rather unusual approaches to broken phones.
