Various predictions of data demand on wireless networks over the next three to ten years show significant growth, outpacing the predicted network capacity. Operators can act defensively and start installing data usage monitoring and throttling mechanisms, or they can go on the offensive and establish network topologies and advanced techniques to maximize network capacity. This white paper explores some of the techniques that operators can use to increase capacity and their relative costs and discusses how Texas Instruments’ new TCI6636 SoC plays a key role in enabling OEMs to meet this capacity challenge.
