The Mobile World Congress, which takes place in Barcelona Spain, is one of the most important events in the Telecommunications industry worldwide.

Dramatic changes and trends have been seen in the African continent in the last several years which will affect the values and culture and will help to shape the future.

The mobile revolution in Africa will empower the people who have been underserved by the constraints of a lack of education as well as lack of accessibility in the rural areas where the majority of the population lives.

The Israeli Trade Ministry together with the Israeli Export Institute are proud to host 61 leading companies in the Telecom industry.

These companies have the capabilities and “know-how” to empower the countries of Africa to transform themselves into First world nations.

There will be a wide variety of solutions ranging from Infrastructure optimization to Value added services and Fascinating applications.

Furthermore, there will be demonstrations of the applications at the Israeli-  Pavilion where one can experience the ground breaking technologies.

They met with various start-up companies, incubator programs, and venture capitalists to discover what makes Israel, an incredibly tiny country, so successful when it comes to new venture creation. they hope to apply what we have learned to inspire and enhance the start-up community in Illinois. This documentary feature was premiered at the Start-up Illinois Dinner on May 19th, 2011: Open link.

Israeli Technologies Lead the World of the New Media

It’s no secret that the media are in upheaval. Print faces unprecedented challenges from the electronic domains. New technologies are morphing the mobile phone into a pocket-sized PC with interactive capabilities surpassing the desktop variety. The PC itself, abetted by its netbook cousin, is evolving from productivity tool to an integrated news and entertainment platform. Converged devices are in demand, Internet video is a reality and new content sources abound. Television is going digital, reinventing itself as on-demand IPTV. Social media and social networking are exploding as mass audiences disperse, personalization becomes key and user-generated content comes to the fore. All of this is happening right now, all over the world, and even more so among young people, the digital natives shaping the future.

For consumers, all this is a treat. For business users, it’s a boon. For established media companies, content providers and operators, a challenge unlike any they’ve known before.

Telecom operators need infrastructure partners who can not only deliver the content but monetize it. Broadcasters must evolve a service-oriented model and technologies that offer users the same simplicity, service availability and quality as traditional broadcast TV. Content providers must integrate their offerings and harness digital possibilities – like basing TV broadcasts, in part, on the popularity of items on the broadcaster’s website. All must capitalize on the complex delivery matrix and develop systems that draw together applications, delivery platforms and managed networks. And all must strive harder than ever before to reach the connected user – who by 2011 will be one in four people around the world.Full Article.
