New 3GPP architecture

Massive changes to architecture could challenge network quality and stability.

In June of 2016, the 3GPP Forum published release 13 of the 3GPP reference architecture for mobile networks, specifically to address the requirements of IoT applications. This new architecture fundamentally changes the functionality of several elements of the architecture and introduces new ones. The intent was to address the impact that massive IoT deployments would have on mobile networks.

But how will these changes impact the quality of the traditional mobile broadband (MBB) services; which will continue to generate significant revenue? Will the changes be able to address the needs of IoT without impacting the quality of experience (QoE) for MBB users?

The key for managing this transformation will be visibility into how the mobile network, the existing mobile services and the new or enhanced service elements perform while the changes are being implemented.
