Smartphones are Straining the Networks

An article in Mobile magazine has reported that a study by Airvana, has highlighted that smartphones are causing a larger than anticipated load on global networks.

Smartphones are not responsible for as much data traffic as laptops with data cards, but the recent boon in mobile data requirements is putting unprecedented stress on the networks all over the world.

The report claims that a smartphone typically generates 8 times the network signalling load of a laptop with a data card.

With iSuppli predicting smartphones sales raising to 450million from the 200 million of 2009 networks will need to look, quickly, at how they can handle this.
