Advantages of Pure-play versus Embedded TDF for LTE Networks White Paper

Mobile broadband is steadily becoming the preferred medium for accessing the Internet and its unlimited array of over-the-top content and services. With the rising use of smartphones, tablets, and mobile-enabled laptops, consumer demand for downloading, streaming, browsing, creating, and sharing content continues to increase exponentially. As a result, mobile carriers face increasing over-the-top use that doesn’t translate into proportional revenue growth, and increasing congestion that negatively impacts the quality of experience (QoE) for everyone on the network. To remain competitive in this dynamic environment, mobile carriers are implementing Traffic Detection Function (TDF) solutions to help them.
