Mobile data traffic continues to grow rapidly. The challenge wireless operators face is to support more subscribers with an increasing bandwidth demand. To meet these bandwidth requirements, there is a need for new technologies that assist the operators in efficiently utilizing the available network resources. Two specific areas where such new technologies could be deemed useful are resource allocation and flow management.

            Mobile Communication Congestion Exposure Scenario


   This memo describes a mobile communications use case for congestion    exposure (ConEx) with a particular focus on those mobile    communication networks that are architecturally similar to the 3GPP    Evolved Packet System (EPS).  This memo provides a brief overview of    the architecture of these networks (both access and core networks)    and current QoS mechanisms and then discusses how congestion exposure    concepts could be applied.  Based on this discussion, this memo    suggests a set of requirements for ConEx mechanisms that particularly    apply to these mobile networks.
