Open Mobile Networks & Internet Gateways
There's a great deal of excitement across the network infrastructure, operator, Internet, consumer electronics, and digital content worlds about the potential for mobile Internet services. This is driving interest across the industry in the concept of open mobile networks and technology that enables operators to provide access to a wide variety of third-party devices and applications.

The idea behind open mobile networks is to enable greater independence in the way infrastructure, devices, and applications evolve, creating incentives for more participants to enter the market and invest in developing diverse applications. This is expected to underpin an expansion of the overall mobile services market.

3G networks are moving toward this model, but they are still heavily influenced by the cellular industry's legacy of tight integration of services and equipment. Mobile Internet services today are in their infancy and characterized by low usage and poor usability. To open up the network, operators need a way to bridge Internet services and mobile networks.

This report examines how operators can use emerging mobile Internet gateway platforms that integrate technologies such as deep packet inspection, TCP optimization, compression, and network-based content-adaptation technologies to enhance the performance of third-party and in-house mobile Internet applications.
