UBIFRANCE takes more than 125 companies to Mobile World Congress 2011

17.01.2011
UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will present more than 125 companies on the French Pavilion at the fifth annual Mobile World Congress, which will be held in Barcelona (Spain) from 14 to 17 February 2011. French exhibitors will carry out demonstrations on the French Pavilion to present new products. There will also be a drinks reception on the French Pavilion at 6pm on 15 February.

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.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
