A new study by Peter Rysavy of Rysavy Research, in conjunction with Mobile Future, discusses the leading-edge potential of quality of service (QoS) management as a tool for handling congestion on LTE and next generation mobile broadband networks.  The paper finds that regulation of QoS will not only hinder the quality of mobile technology enjoyed by consumers today, but will also impact the evolution of our wireless ecosystem. A light-touch regulatory system has spurred investment, innovation and vast consumer benefits for the last several decades. Imposing unnecessary regulations that dictate network design and operation will be a radical departure from the sensible policies that have catapulted the United States to global leadership in the mobile broadband industry.
