The Mobile Network Optimisation Summit
the largest and longest running operator led forum globally!

Optimized Network Economics the Key for Successful Growth of Telecom Operators

The cynics may disagree, but the truth is that the euphoric rise of the iPhone has rapidly changed the once boring mobile data process. Users are suddenly downloading large volumes of data over their phones, causing mobile operators to frantically search for new solutions to help their networks handle the increased data traffic. Almost overnight, new markets appeared for products that didn’t exist a few years earlier and small companies hustled to introduce new technologies to take advantage of these opportunities.

So besides the smart phone what else is driving data traffic?

Kamaruzaman Mohd - Head of Core Network Design and Delivery for DiGi Telecommunications, the influx of smart phones due to their popularity as a reason.

We anticipate the influx of smart phones will contribute a lot of that traffic in the coming years; smart phones would affect the signalling capabilities of the network. So you need to focus on the signalling of the network, he said.

“Data traffic is one part of it, but the smart phone is significant to the market in many ways. First, data will affect your network, your ESN, GSM and everything, and another thing is signalling because smart phones will generate like 20 more times signalling capacity compared to a normal phone, so you need to have this kind of visibility in order to do better optimization” he said.

Daryl Schoolar, Principal Analyst for Wireless Infrastructure at Ovum explains that the mobile networks of 2016 will be more complex than what we have in place now. “Mobile network of 2016 will be more complex in some ways with a mixture of macrocells, small cells, DAS, and Wi-Fi. Hopefully operators will use these tools to improve both capacity and coverage. And while LTE will certainly be the dominant 4G technology there will still be plenty of WCDMA/HSPA+ coverage as well. It is this operator challenge of managing multiple radio network generations (2G, 3G, and 4G) that will drive the development of new antenna and radio solutions to simplify network deployment and management. Integrated radio antenna solutions will be more common. These types of solutions will also help with the reforming of spectrum so that an operator can move LTE into existing 2G and 3G bands,” he explained.
