In the last decade, mobile data traffic has skyrocketed, a trend that’s unlikely to subside in the foreseeable future. The use of the Internet, cloud and the ubiquity of the web as an application platform created an unprecedented increase in traffic due in part to the development of new web standards and the innovation in mobile wireless technologies. To meet this demand, the mobile industry is rethinking some fundamental aspects of network design. With this growth in use, there’s an increased amount of data being sent over multi hop public links. For example, the industry currently uses a client-server model for applications. The client typically resides on an end user device such as a smartphone or Internet of Things (IoT) module, while the server is hosted (resides) in a large data center using either private or public cloud infrastructure.
