How we access the Internet is changing rapidly. The most recent Digital Index from Adobe finds that for the first time, tablet web traffic (8%) has topped that of smartphones (7%). More significant for web retailers, the study reveals tablet users spend 54% more per order than if they were using a smartphone, and 19% more than if they placed the order on a desktop/laptop.

What we all do with our mobile devices has changed enormously. Mobility used to be about voice and SMS but now it is increasingly about data services.
These bandwidth-intensive data services are now the order of the day for mobile users. Mobile devices are now mobile computers, and the service creation that boomed in the internet era is now seeing rapid uptake in mobile. Indeed, as mobile broadband speeds have started to approximate fixed speeds, the global growth of mobile broadband subscribers has started to significantly outpace fixed broadband.
But have the networks kept up?

“Het net” is the latest buzz term in the mobile industry.
Yet, the fact is that most of today’s mobile networks are heterogeneous networks, or het nets, of some kind. Operators around the world support both 2G and 3G technologies as a minimum, and a growing number of markets now support 4G.

As mobile operators invest heavily to migrate to LTE networks, they face a major financial challenge in the near-term. The number of LTE-based services—and the profits they bring in—will require a long-term horizon to achieve a return on investment (ROI).
To speed up their ROI, operators can support an LTE business model with revenues from other services using the same technologies and infrastructure. One of the most promising ways to do that is to satisfy the growing enterprise need for mobile cloud connectivity.

Most operators' ultimate goal is a fiber-based Ethernet backhaul network. Fiber has virtually unlimited capacity. Plus, compared with TDM or SDH/SONET, Ethernet offers lower costs, greater scalability and flexibility and better support for IP-based applications.
With these benefits, you'd expect operators to rush to implement fiber-based Ethernet backhaul. However, that's not the case.
