Mobile World Congress 2018 Update
BeWhere attended the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from February 24 to March 1, 2018. MWC Barcelona is the largest mobile conference featuring prominent executives representing mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from across the world. This year, the conference gathered over 100,000 attendees and 2,300 exhibitors from 204 countries.
BeWhere partnered with the GSMA to showcase its innovative Mobile IOT technology in the form of an interactive punching bag (“IoT Punch Boxer”). BeWhere placed one of its new LTE-M device inside the bag and, using the accelerometer, recorded the number of impacts and G-force of each participants that took a turn punching the bag. Data was transmitted to BeWhere’s servers and displayed on its web portal via an LTE-M private network established by Nutaq’s PicoLTE.
The interactive display and the underlying technology was a huge success by all accounts and was highlighted in CNN, ZDNet and Lighthouse media. Videos can be viewed by clicking on the links below. The bag was punched by 460 participants during the 4-day conference and brought thousands of visitors to the IoT booth.
