NetworldEurope, in a joint effort with CCSA (NetworldEurope Cooperative Members), organised a Workshop in parallel with Mobile World Congress 2023 entitled “More than GigaBit Broadband & Metaverse on the Move”. The workshop aimed to provide an open information space to share current and future views about the real requirements of “Metaverse”, and how this upcoming area is being realized by different stakeholders. Two different discussion panels were organized, discussing current practices and plans, as well as potential new requirements and challenges that the Metaverse may bring to mobile communications infrastructures. Ultimately, the workshop was designed to contribute to identify future innovation challenges that are being posed by the introduction of Metaverse in our society. The workshop featured key speakers from industry and academia, representing the views of manufacturers, operators, and application developers. The event, which was also held in hybrid format, took the opportunity of MWC to bring all speakers around the world together in the same room, providing enhanced interactions in the discussions.
