Shipments of storage devices for computers rose across the board during the second quarter, resulting from the March earthquake in Japan after panicked manufacturers strove to replenish stockpiles, according to a new IHS iSuppli Storage Market Tracker from information and analysis provider IHS.
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.
