Measuring the Explosion of LTE Signaling Traffic – A Diameter Traffic Model

Many of us in the industry have been talking for some time about the “signaling storm” and how Diameter signaling traffic will be clogging the control plane. Has anyone taken the time and effort to study this problem in depth? We at Diametriq have developed a model and did the analysis –the results may surprise you! This paper analyzes the combination of the increasing complexity of the mobile core, the explosion of devices, applications and events that require more interaction with the core and presents a model that calculates the amount of LTE signaling traffic a 4G network will be required to handle.
