MWC 2023: Transforming telco to techco with the Microsoft Cloud

The telecommunications industry is at an inflection point where connectivity has become a commodity and business-to-consumer (B2C) revenue has flattened. The new breed of customer demands enhanced digital experiences while returns on massive capex spending have stagnated. Technology brings an opportunity to fuel transformation and unlock differentiated revenue streams. This transformation will enable telcos to monetize their 5G investments and maximize the value of the edge in innovative ways including cross-industry solutions. Microsoft has a long history of partnering with telcos and other organizations, which provides opportunities for joint innovation and collaboration.

Microsoft is excited to return to Mobile World Congress (MWC), February 27 to March 2, 2023, in Barcelona. With an approach rooted in partnership, we look to inspire and enable this telco transformation at the world’s largest and most influential connectivity event. Keep an eye out for compelling updates from Microsoft Azure for Operators and industry-making news from partners. We look forward to discussions around Microsoft’s extended partnership with OpenAI. Feel free to get a head start and experience the new OpenAI-powered Bing Chat for transportation tips and restaurant recommendations in Barcelona.
