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: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
