Ericsson WCDMA Flow of Users allows operators to maintain an optimal flow of smartphone users through a 3G/WCDMA network. It uses a defined selection of software features and settings to automatically balance active user count and customer experience. As a result, operators can maximize smartphone user experience, even during busy traffic load conditions, while ensuring high-quality voice services.
