How to achieve network optimisation for IoT
With analyst firms forecasting exabytes of IoT-related network traffic by the mid-2020s and billions of IoT devices projected to be connected, it’s clear that IoT networks need to be optimised to minimise the impact of IoT traffic on other services using cellular networks and to ensure maximised utilisation of network resources on other types of networks.
The application traffic is only part of the challenge, the number of devices involved in IoT will mean a radical increase in the volume of non-app related traffic as devices send messages in the control plane of networks.
