  • 8. 2013 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 8Public 4G / LTE impacts data usage growth A crucial factor promoting the increase in mobile speeds is the increasing proportion of 4G mobile connections. The impact of 4G connections on traffic is significant, because 4G connections, which include mobile WiMAX and Long-Term Evolution (LTE), generate a disproportionate amount of mobile data traffic. Cisco found in a report released in February that in 2012 only 1 percent of global connections were 4G but that 1 percent drove 14 percent of all global mobile data traffic. By 2017, 4G connections will represent 10 percent of global connections but will generate 45 percent of the data traffic, Cisco predicted.. A 4G connection generates 28 times more traffic than a non-4G connection ABI Research notes that LTE Traffic will grow by over 200% in 2013 Verizon Wireless indicated that 50% of its data usage is now LTE Smartphone app downloads in 2012 were 36.2 billion in 2012, up 88% from 2011.

  • 12. 2013 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 12Public Whats an IPX anyway? Standard definition of an IPX: A global, private, managed, very high-quality IP network Used to interconnect multiple networks Providing guaranteed End-to-End Quality of Service mandated by SLAs Intended to enable deliver of: Voice, data, video and other content between connected networks, across multiple implementations and standards IPX networks are intended to deliver multiple services across a single connection but one that can dedicate bandwidth to specific services IPX networks should meet or exceed GSMA/i3Forum QoS specifications
  • 13. 2013 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 13Public LTE and IPX The overall objective for LTE (Long Term Evolution) is to provide extremely high performance and speed on mobile broadband. LTE requires a full Internet Protocol (IP) network architecture and is designed to support voice in the packet domain IPX represents the answer to LTEs secure, scalable and reliable architecture requirement 3GPP Family Technology Evolution GSM GPRS EDGE UMTS HSPA HSPA+ LTE LTE-Advanced 1990 2000 2010 2011 20142011

  • 16. 2013 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 16Public Mobile Operators See the Need for Speed Really, they see the need for IPX especially when it comes to LTE Roaming. Operators noted that lack of a common standard for Diameter as well as Diameter variants to Diameter Interoperability problems as major drivers to moving their LTE Roaming to an IPX Another operator noted that IPX was essential for VoLTE they did not wish to ultimately manage interoperability issues across hundreds of interconnections.

Utilize a hosted Diameter Hub on an IPX network Only one connection needs to be configured Greatly reducing testing time per destination An IPX, by definition can support LTE-standard high QoS Speeding up time-to-market / global enablement of LTE roaming, driving revenues Reducing efforts - minimizing resources involved in service roll-out, saving costs LTE Hubbing can mediate differing Diameter implementations

All rights reserved. 19Public LTE and Roaming: Diameter protocol A first step in mobile roaming is to get access to the Visited network Procedure for Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) In 2G and 3G networks, the signaling traffic associated with this procedure is handled by SS7 networks We as a messaging hub provider know this type of traffic because it enables SMS as well In LTE networks, the protocol for this signaling traffic is called Diameter IP native IPX is its natural home for interconnects Not just roaming; additional applications are being standardized
