Motion is the latest trump card available to CE manufacturers, enabling the ability to create a new generation of products to operate how people naturally interact. Enabling this trend is a unique class of motion-sensing chips, referred to as MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems).
This article discusses the impact of increased signaling traffic fueled by growing mobile broadband and machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity on networks, systems and network processors. While data offload strategies have received considerable attention in industry, the impact of signaling overload and mitigation strategies have not been widely addressed. A good understanding of the reasons for signaling traffic increases, its impact at the network level, system level and network processor level is needed to clear misnomers prevailing in the industry.
