Since the modern smart-phones have been introduced worldwide, more and more users have become eager to engage with mobile applications and connected services. This eagerness has boosted up sales in the market - more than 64% up annually worldwide in Q2 2010. Simultaneously, smart-phone owners are using an increasing number of applications requiring the transfer of large amounts of data to/from mobile devices. Applications related to social networks, global sensing, and content distribution are just a few of the examples. As a consequence the traffic generated by such devices has caused many problems to 3G network providers.
