The more LTE Network capacity, the more is used, according to a new report.

This report, from Oracle Communications, finds that Smartphones, IoT and connected cars are fueling a rise in LTE network traffic, with no end in sight.

LTE network traffic is also being consumed by LTE broadcast, VoLTE, and signaling associated with the policy management required to support more sophisticated data plans and applications.

Oracle said that connected cars also continue to show strong network traffic momentum, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30 percent.

According to Statista.com, Smartphones will represent 76 percent of wireless connections by 2021.

As consumers maintain their appetite for “always on” connections to increasingly sophisticated and data intensive applications such as gaming and video, LTE network traffic will continue to skyrocket.

Likewise, devices that reach beyond the traditional mobile handset, such as IoT sensors used in everything from tracking available parking spots and moisture in crops to lost pets or workers on a job site will have a significant impact on Diameter signaling growth.

Can we ever get enough mobile bandwidth? Apparently not.
