The future of broadband is going to depend on the ability of the infrastructure to meet the needs of users. This, in large part, demands the more efficient use of spectrum… spectrum though is in something of a crunch at the moment. Meaning – there’s just not enough of it.
With this in mind, we read the newest study recently from Ericsson on mobile traffic.
Released late last week, this study provides some good background and support for the state of spectrum these days, especially in urban areas, and the need for continuing innovation to make more efficient use of spectrum. It also includes forecasts for the growth of data traffic through 2016 as well as some really great graphics. It’s a worthwhile and important read for anyone interested in broadband.
