Mobile Phone Traffics are Overflowing by iPhones

The number of the subscribers of mobile phones in Japan is beyond 100,000,000 and it means that every person in Japan has one mobile phone. It looks like that the mobile phone market has already reached mature situation. However, as a global tide, the mobile telecommunication service is greatly sifting from voice to data service and the contents of the service are changing dramatically to media rich ones. 90% of the current handheld units are available for internet connection. The data usage fee is over one forth of the monthly bill. Because media rich contents are overflowing more and more, it will cause explosive increase of the traffic in the near future. Besides, it has been increasingly demanded by the consumers to deal with the radio dead zone problems in buildings and crowded spaces more and more carefully. Therefore, investment pressure for expensive mobile base stations is getting bigger and bigger. However, the more the mobile phone companies appeal that the service lineups of mobile data communication of 3G/4G like iPhone 3G serives are very convenient and useful, the bigger the limitation of accessing to heavy contents they have to set is.

There is a recent good related article as below;

iPhone Traffic Nearly Doubles in August


AdMob announced today that its August 2008 AdMob Mobile Metrics Report show that the Apple iPhone has nearly doubled the amount of traffic it produces in August. More than 2.9 million requests per day came from iPhone users according to the report.


The top five smartphones in the US (in no order) according to the report are the iPhone, Palm Centro, BlackBerry Curve, BlackBerry Pearl, and Samsung Instinct. Those five handsets generated 12.9% of all US traffic in August.

Nokia has 62.4% of worldwide smartphone traffic, despite not having a top 20 smartphone in the US. RIM is second place with 10.8% worldwide and in the US RIM produces 31.2% of smartphone traffic. Smartphones in all accounted for 23.7% of traffic in the US in August.


But you do not need to worry about the problem because we have a good solution. FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) is greatly expected as one of the most effective methods to solve the conflicting problem. It is a technique to flow the surging traffic to surface fixed network at low cost. Indeed, 70-80% of mobile phone traffics is caused not outdoors but "INDOORS". In addition, it is requested to connect every one with anybody at everywhere with ubiquities and IP usage. Opened connection is inevitably requested and is getting greater rapidly. The fixed networks, mobile networks, fixed data communications and wireless data communication which were separately standing alone are getting being unified. The broad band era of one platform has come.

Nobody doubts that in the near future only the carriers that can provide mobile broad band contents and application services regardless of the type of mobile units will be supported by all the consumers.

The Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Posts and Telecommunications of Japan is aggressively supporting IP and open technology. It is pushing fusion of mobile networks and fixed networks by making fair competition rules.

WiFi has great open nature and it is the very useful means as a common platform all over the world. It is equipped not only by PCs but by various kinds of mobile telephones or game consoles. Everyone can use it so it is the most popular wireless telecommunication method.

Apple and AT&T are facing another lawsuit over the iPhone 3G.


This time, William Gillis of San Diego is suing the two companies, claiming that they "have misrepresented the speed, strength, and performance of the 3G bandwidth network," according to freelance journalist Justin McLachlan. Apple has acknowledged the complaints over the iPhone 3G's reception and has promised to fix the issues via a software update.


Apple was sued in August over the iPhone 3G by an Alabama woman who claimed that the company deceived consumers by promising that the iPhone 3G would be "twice as fast" as the original iPhone.

Gillis is taking a slightly different tack, according to AppleInsider: he's claiming that the companies knew that the volume of iPhone 3Gs sold would cause the kind of network congestion problems that occurred because they were aware of the iPhone 3G's power issues.
