MWC Day 2 wrap-up: 5G SA and core network transformation

Mobile World Congress, Barcelona – Day 2 was chock full of news around 5G standalone as Ericsson announced a major deal with Orange Spain.

Meanwhile, at a DriveNets' press conference, established customer AT&T touted the success it has had with the vendor's disaggregated core network routing kit. Then, Orange Interim Executive Vice President of International Networks Jean Louis Le Roux, said the operator was trialing DriveNets gear this year, while Cayetano Carbajo, vice president for core transport and services platforms at Telefonica, said his company was considering including DriveNets in a trial as well.

In our Day 2 wrap-up video, we also reveal where the young people hang out at the show (hint: it's a really long walk) and lament about the fact that we aren't part of that crowd anymore.

Watch the video to find out how our day went.
