The increasing global demand for Wide Area Network processing power and speed means mobile wireless operators and bandwidth wholesalers are becoming overwhelmed by staggering volumes of Cloud & LTE traffic. Aggregate bandwidth usage is forecast to continue bringing a tidal surge of traffic behind waves of video and infotainment apps, Cloud data storage, social media, Location Based Services (LBS), Machine-to-Machine (M2M), smart homes, connected cars, and you name it.
