Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala and Dave Shepherd at MWC23 | Mobile World Congress on SiliconANGLE theCUBE

Ivanti made a splash at MWC 2023! Billed as “the largest and most influential connectivity event, where technology, community and commerce converge,” MWC 2023 took place in Barcelona and featured a whopping 85,000 attendees, including executives from top global companies, international governments and – of course – trailblazing tech businesses like Ivanti.

MWC is hosted by GSMA, an industry organization representing mobile network operators. Given Ivanti’s leading position in the mobile device space – with capabilities in mapping, managing and securing devices from cloud to edge – this was a prime opportunity for us to share what we’ve been working on.

The highlights are almost too numerous to recap, but we wanted to share a snapshot of how Ivanti made the most of MWC this year.

We kicked off the event with a welcome dinner for 30 attendees, including executives from several mobile tech companies. The dinner was hosted by Ivanti’s Günter Mayer, Vice President Carrier International and Apple GTM.

In total, the Ivanti team held more than 40 meetings with key executives from the mobile carrier ecosystem. This included meetings with Deutsche Telekom, Orange, BT, Swisscom, FreeMove Alliance, Vodafone, Swisscom, Telefonica, Google, Qualcomm, Nvidia, Everphone, EBF, Sector 27, S2E and many more, including key customers.

Ivanti held two broadcast interviews. One featured Chief Product Officer Srinivas Mukkamala and Global Vice President of Sales Engineering David Shepherd (who also participated in a panel discussion), and the other again featuring Srinivas along with Sally Fuller from BT. 

Srinivas and Sally announced Ivanti’s partnership with BT’s EE group, which means that Ivanti’s technology will be offered to SMEs across the United Kingdom under the title “SME Secure UEM,” featuring Ivanti branding. With Ivanti SME Secure UEM, BTs customers can simplify their inventory, configure and manage mobile devices at ease and create profiles and enforce restrictions through security policies.

Ivanti’s Sal Viveros, head of Global Corporate Communications, met with top social media influencers and hosted briefings with Forrester and IDC to share Ivanti’s latest developments. This is all on top of top-tier media interviews that are sure to generate positive buzz in the days and weeks to come.

We know that the conversations we have at MWC make a difference, because this year we were able to announce a major partnership that was formed as a result of last year’s activity. This partnership, with Deutsche Telekom, includes a new joint solution.

We’re thrilled with the experience we had at MWC this year and look forward to the conversations and partnerships that will grow from our efforts there.
