HONG KONG -- PCCW mobile has adopted Huawei’s pioneering smartphone signalling optimization solution to further enhance its network performance and improve the mobile broadband experience for its customers. The 3GPP-Release-8 (3GPP-R8)-based smartphone signalling optimization solution can significantly reduce 3GPP-R8 smartphone signalling traffic by over 25%.

Mobile broadband traffic has increased sharply over the past few years due to the increasing popularity of smartphones. The preponderance of “heartbeat” applications - that frequently transmit small data packets – along with smartphones’ frequent changes from active to idle mode create high signalling traffic, put pressure on mobile networks and affect capacity and quality.

An end-to-end solution is required to solve increasing traffic and the signalling storms brought upon by an increasing number of smartphones. A joint effort between Huawei and PCCW mobile during the past few months has delivered a solution that optimises smartphone signalling behaviour.
