QoS and policy management in mobile data networks

The convenience and power of mobile applications delivered on emerging smart devices will fuel the rapid growth in subscribers and sheer volume of data. Operators world-wide are racing to add new services and more powerful devices.

This white paper explores the growth in mobile data, and examines how this growth impacts QoE by placing heavy strains on wireless network resources.

It also reviews how wireless networks are evolving from primarily voice-only services to converged voice, video, and data traffic, and how the emerging 3GPP standards for QoS and policy management can be used to ease network congestion, provide higher service quality, and create a framework for new business models.
