Mobile World Congress 2012, More than 60,000 players in the telecommunications industry are gathered in Barcelona, Spain for the Mobile World Congress 2012 where technology companies will discuss future of communications and the networked society.

The annual conference, which kicked off on Monday, has attracted over 3000 chief executive officers from the telecommunications sector around the world and is expected to give a platform for players in the mobile industry to make announcements of their latest innovations.

According to the proponents of the networked society more than 50 billion electronic devices such as fridges, television sets, washing machines, iron boxes, ovens among others will be connected to the internet by 2020.

“We shall have machines talking to one another and all this will be made possible through internet connectivity. For example, an alarm clock and the lighting system can be connected in such a way that when the alarm goes, the lights automatically come on,” Mr Steven Shovel, an exhibitor from Ericsson, a network infrastructure manufacturer told the Nation at the sidelines of the conference.
