Optimizing the apps ecosystem
With the rapid growth of wireless communication over the last couple of years and the expectedgrowth to 50 billion connections by the year 2020 it is time to consider whether network capacity canmatch the predicted demand for spectrum. Mobile phones have become multi-functional devicescapable of hosting a broad range of applications and although mobile networks were already dimensionedfor voice there is now a need for data-oriented devices which are generally unpredictable andunbounded in their usage of spectrum.Developer’s need to make changes now in the way apps are produced to streamline their data usageand prevent over loading of networks.Vicki Livingston of 4G Americas and Gautam Talagery of Ericsson will be focussing this sessionon giving developers tips and tricks to develop apps more efficiently to use less spectrum whilstdiscussing the larger issues of optimising the app ecosystem.
