Mobile World Congress is the world’s leading event for the mobile telecommunications, services and content sector. In addition to over 125 French exhibitors at the trade show, the French Pavilion will also play host to three competitiveness clusters, five regional agencies, and the Invest in France Agency. A wide range of products, services and technologies will be on show, including chips, middleware, theme-based mobile solutions, content, applications and wireless telecoms networks.
Five regions of France (Aquitaine, Brittany, Ile-de-France, Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur) will present their expertise in the sector on the French Pavilion. The Systematic, Cap Digital and SCS competitiveness clusters will also welcome a host of companies to their respective booths.
According to the French Mobile Operators Association, the French mobile-telephony market includes 18 operators, 15 of which are mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs), and several brand licences, which generated a consolidated turnover of €23 billion in 2009, up by 1.4% on 2008.
MVNOs have amounted to 25% of the net growth of the entire sector since 2006. The penetration rate (number of SIM cards per inhabitant) stood at 96% in late 2009. There are now 61.5 million SIM cards (up 6% on 2008). The number of smartphones doubled in 2009 and they represent 12% of all mobile devices.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
