Internet of Things (IoT) and Over-the-Top (OTT) Applications – How to Quantify Signaling Impact and Power Consumption

  • Date:  June 9, 2015
  • Event Time: 8am PT/ 11am ET/ 3pm UTC

Webinar Overview

Abstract: 
Countless devices use cellular connectivity to exchange data. Machine to Machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT), which are part of ongoing 5G discussions, will see exponential growth in additional devices. Every day, new applications on smartphones become available, potentially influencing the user experience since smartphone batteries discharge very quickly. Each application running on an M2M or smartphone device also causes significant signaling load in the cellular network, even if only a small amount of user data is transmitted. This webinar reveals the challenges associated with over-the-top applications. It explains test capabilities for quantifying the impact on both signaling load and power consumption caused by applications running on top of the device under test.

Attendees will learn:

  • Operator requirements regarding M2M/IoT device behavior
  • Impact on cellular network signaling caused by applications running on top of an M2M/IoT device or smartphone
  • Impact on power consumption resulting from applications running on top of an M2M/IoT device or smartphone

Anasthasia Westphal joined Rohde & Schwarz in Munich in 2012 as a product manager for test systems for mobile devices. She is responsible for network operator acceptance testing (IOT), performance quality analysis (PQA) and IMS and VoLTE protocol testing on test systems based on the R&S®CMW500 wideband radio communication tester. Anasthasia studied business and technology with a special focus on electrical engineering at the Technical University in Munich.

Meik Kottkamp is technology manager within the Test and Measurement Division of Rohde & Schwarz in Munich. He is responsible for strategic marketing and product portfolio development regarding LTE, LTE-Advanced, HSPA+ and EDGE Evolution. Meik joined Rohde & Schwarz in August 2007. From 1996 to 2007, he worked with Siemens Mobile Communication Networks and Terminals. As standardization manager, he was leading a group responsible for the Siemens standardization strategy in 3GPP TSG RAN. Later he was involved in predevelopment projects on broadband technologies Flash OFDM, WiMAX and HSPA+. After creation of NSN in early 2007, he joined the LTE product management group. Meik holds a degree of electrical engineering from the University of Hannover / Germany.
