The wireless signaling challenge is big news. Headlines is a new feature of the Taming the Signaling Storm blog that covers breaking news about signaling challenges that make the news.
There’s a new network math, according to the CTO of Telus and it goes like this: 100% increase in wireless data equals 2700% increase in signaling.
Eros Spadotto, executive vice-president of technology and operations at Telus, presented these dismal new figures in a speech at the IEEE International Conference on Communications this week in Ottawa. Here’s the complete quote:
“The reality is that while our megabytes of traffic is increasing, the signaling from these devices is greatly overwhelming that. In fact, we can look at a period of time where our growth has been 100% year over year on payload, on how many megabytes, but our signaling has grown 2,700%.”
