O2 delayed its IPO by the uncertainty of the 'brexit'

The trademark of Telefónica in the United Kingdom has decided to wait for the departure of the EU

O2, the trademark of Telefónica in the United Kingdom, suspends, for the moment, its exit to the London Stock Exchange, according to Sky News and Bloomberg. The operation, valued at 10.000 million pounds (11.000 million euros) was scheduled for this year, but the second main British operator has decided to postpone it until after the Proposed referendum on United Kingdom membership of the European Union.

The second largest mobile operator in the UK was expected to be listed on the London Stock Exchange this year after the auctions of 4G and 5G in April. However, media reports now suggest that the plans have been put on hold because of the medium that exists about the uncertainty that this unknown transition entails.

The 52% of Britons who voted in favor of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union in June of the 2016. Now, arriving at the end of 2018, it is not yet clear what the path is going to be, nor the economic and business consequences for companies within the United Kingdom.

British Prime Minister Theresa May warned Monday that 95% of the Brexit agreement is already "closed" and has expressed confidence in successfully ending negotiations with Brussels in the coming weeks. In an intervention in the Parliament, destined mainly to calm the tensions within his own party, the British prime minister has made a new call to the unit in front of the renewed threats of rebellion of the 'brexiteros'.

Even so, we can see that companies do not want to move their chips until it is clear how the final agreement will come about. We have until the 11: 00 (local time RU) of the 29 March 2019, official date for the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

Telefónica and Ericsson launch a simultaneous demo of 5G driving and streaming.

The Spanish telecommunications group met with Ericsson and others to show how 5G will drive the future automobile.

The novel part of this demonstration involved the use of 5G in the 3.5 GHz band to simultaneously control autonomous driving and content consumption. He used an EZ10 autonomous driving electric minibus supplied by EasyMile, which contains an Ericsson 5G terminal and an information and entertainment platform from CarMedia.

The program showed a high data transfer capacity and a very low latency that allows the simultaneous downloading of high definition content; the creation of a work environment in the vehicle with virtual office applications and remote driving support based on the analysis and real-time processing of the telemetry data sent by the autonomous vehicle.

“5G technology has a lot to contribute in the field of connected vehicles,” said Javier Gutiérrez, Director of Strategy and Network Development at Telefónica España. “In addition to downloading multimedia content, autonomous vehicles generate up to 4 TB of daily information from the information collected by the sensors, which means that a large bandwidth is needed to transfer this data in real time to the edge of the network and also an extremely low dormant state. All to jointly process the data received by the vehicles of a certain area and proceed to the decision-making process, thus increasing the security in the vehicle environments ”.

"For 2023, 20% of the world's population will have 5G coverage," said Jorge Navais, Commercial Director of the Telefónica account at Ericsson. “It will have a huge impact in terms of user experience and the digital transformation of industries and cities. Ericsson has already signed 39 agreements to initiate 5G tests and for the development of use cases like the one we present today. With this demonstration, we take a look at the future and how 5G will allow autonomous driving, just one example among many possibilities. It also places Ericsson and Telefónica at the forefront of Spain's journey to 5G «.

This demonstration was part of a larger initiative of Telefónica called the 5G Technology Cities project that aims to provide 5G service to Segovia and Talavera de la Reina (the demo was in the latter). The official line is that they will become "5G live laboratories", which seems to be in line with some of the things that happen in Italy as well. While this type of thing provides a bit of publicity for everyone involved, real-world dress rehearsals are probably an important way to find out why we are going to use the new technologies.


The last 12 of June, the capital of the Costa del Sol was chosen by Telefónica, to talk about the new concept of the digital revolution through the 'Things matter' day, which aimed to bring technology to companies, improve the productive processes and their profitability.
In Malaga, it is the first event of this magnitude organized by the Spanish multinational Telefónica, in which more than 140 companies were present, actively participating in the day that took place around the so-called IoT Technology (Internet of things); demonstrating that the city is "leading in innovation and that this event is a clear example of the role it plays in that aspect in the world", this was confirmed by the Southern Territorial Director of Telefónica España, Jerónimo Vílchez.

Treefone and Grupo Viatek, had the opportunity to attend the event and identify with those companies that are focusing on the development of digital transformation, especially in the field of telecommunications, they are aware of the great competitive advantages and high profitability what this means, not only for themselves, but for society, which is increasingly demanding.
It should be noted that this initiative launched by Telefónica, is already supporting those business models developed by Andalusian Startups that are focused on making life easier through the Internet of Things.
