According to its website, Arieso provides: “customer centric network management software solutions that enable operators to continuously and accurately direct investment to meet the increasing demand for rapidly growing data services.”
So it’ll come as no surprise then that Arieso has published a report suggesting that data use is increasing dramatically, with muchos investment required.
The Arieso study, titled “Recent Smartphone Trends & the Extreme Data User”, reveals that 1% of users consume half of all downloaded data. Interesting.
One of the other key finds is that iPhone 4S peeps are the “hungriest” data users, consuming twice as much as their iPhone 4 brethern and three times as much as those with an iPhone 3G.
Of course, that increased data use will be fuelled at least in part by Siri, the iPhone 4S’ voice recognition chap.
“The introduction of increasingly sophisticated devices, coupled with growing consumer demand, is creating unrelenting pressure on mobile networks. The capacity crunch is still a very real threat for mobile operators, and it looks set to only get harder in 2012,” screamed Dr. Michael Flanagan, Arieso’s CTO and author of the study.
“The mobile industry needs new investment and new approaches to boost network performance and manage the customer experience”.
We thought you might say that.
Flanagan concludes: “Despite stark industry warnings, mobile operators are still playing ‘Guess Who?’ with their subscribers.”
