Countless devices use cellular connectivity in order to exchange data. Machine to Machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT), which are part of the ongoing 5G discussions, foresee exponential growth in additional devices.
Every day, new applications on smartphones become available, potentially influencing the user experience since smartphone batteries discharge very quickly. Each application running on an M2M or smartphone device also causes significant signaling load in the cellular network, even if only a small amount of user data is transmitted.
This webinar reveals the challenges associated with over-the-top applications. It explains test capabilities for quantifying the impact on both signaling load and power consumption caused by applications running on top of the device under test.
