Mobile Web At Its Tipping Point During The Pandemic
Mobile service providers are struggling to keep subscribers connected during the current COVID-19 pandemic. There has been a dramatic increase in voice and data activity as people rely heavily on mobile networks for education, entertainment and important updates on how to prevent the spread of the virus. Due to social distancing requirements, almost every activity needs to be done remotely, including working, learning, shopping and training. For some religious communities, even worship services are streamed over mobile networks. Now more than ever, smart network management is crucial for serving more subscribers using the same bandwidth to ensure connectivity and a positive user quality of experience even with huge traffic surges. Even after the disease's peak has passed, there will continue to be more virtual activity, and mobile networks will need to handle higher traffic volumes reliably.
