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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
