The latest interim update to the Ericsson Mobility Report highlights the continued rapid growth of smartphones and connectivity.
Today, cellular networks rely on fixed collections of cells (tracking areas) for user equipment localisation. Locating users within these areas involves broadcast search (paging), which consumes radio bandwidth but reduces the user equipment signalling required for mobility management. Tracking areas are today manually configured, hard to adapt to local mobility and influence the load on several key resources in the network. We propose a decentralised and self-adaptive approach to mobility management based on a probabilistic model of local mobility.
Growth in mobile communications and data traffic just keeps accelerating. Today there are over 6.4 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide, with 130 million new net additions in the first quarter of 2013. The latest Ericsson Mobility Report looks at where this growth is coming from, where it is heading and what it means. This new short film visualizes key findings from this report. These findings are based on data traffic measurements that we have carried out on our networks worldwide since the early days of mobile broadband.
Today’s competitive landscape in Egypt is driving operators to create innovative offers that allow them to deliver on customer expectations while staying profitable.
Keeping up with the demands of the large youth market in Asia and Africa, means operators need to be fast in bringing innovative new offers to market.
