Rakuten Aquafadas Highlights from MWC19

Mobile World Congress

For the first time ever, Rakuten Inc. had its own, large, FCB-decorated booth at the Mobile World Congress 2019 held in Barcelona (Feb. 25th-28th).

Of course, the main purpose of this presence was to highlight Rakuten’s upcoming entry (Oct. 2019) as Japan’s 4th mobile network operator through to big technological & alliance-based announcements – mainly focused on a groundbreaking (and the world’s first) end-to-end virtualized cloud-native network. Keynotes from CEO “Mickey Mikitani, panels & conferences led by CTO Tareq Amin punctuated the 4-day event.

Rakuten Aquafadas on stage

The Japanese global innovation company also wanted to showcase the richness of its global ecosystem and many different business units were invited to attend MWC19, including Rakuten Aquafadas. 

As one of the largest Rakuten delegations there, we (Rakuten Aquafadas) drew attention by opening the booth’s first day with a remarkable stage presentation, with Olivier Alluis (CEO), Stéphane Dayras (Pre-Sales Director) & Achille Coenegracht (Global Sales & Business Development Director) putting on a show. They’ve seduced the audience by displaying Rakuten Aquafadas’ outstanding capabilities to provide companies with easy-to-use yet highly innovative solutions for digital & mobile content creation, management and publishing, regardless of devices or platforms.
