The increasing number of mobile terminal devices, the development of communication networks with a continuous increase in data rates, and the increase in the use of ICT services and applications result in increased volumes of generated data traffic. The variety of terminal devices and used ICT services and applications cause specific characteristics of generated data traffic. The analysis of generated data traffic is the ground for any further research pointed at specific context of use. Alleged context is applied to the used communication network, the type of terminal device, used service and geolocation.
The aim of the research is to identify diversities in characteristics of generated data traffic regarding the used communication network, the type of terminal device, used service and geolocation.
The main purpose is the adjustment of tariff plans, development of assistive technology-based services, detection of network-based safety incidents and the improvement of design, dimensioning and management of the communication network.
