Smart Cloud Of Things

As of late, we have been witnessing an exponential growth in mobile network data. In the 4th generation (4G) of 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) networks, LTE (Long Term Evolution) has reached significant bandwidth utilisation, increasing overall user experience. In parallel, Wi-Fi technology (802.11) has become not only the "de facto" local access wireless technology, but is a popular deployment in public access as well (hotspot). Considering this outcome, 3GPP has designed the Evol Read More...
