Mobile networks are expected to serve a wide range of verticals, however the Long Term Evolution (LTE) network is optimized for basic mobile operator services only. The network functions serving LTE networks are largely implemented as dedicated single function devices that offer poor customization options. This intrinsic inflexibility makes current LTE networks unable to meet the requirements of future mobile networks. For example, LTE networks experience signaling storms because the signals… CONTINUE READING
