We are reviewing a document on mobile application security and one of the topics is: Implement Controls to Prevent Unauthorized Access to Paid-For Resources.  Under this topic is the following comment which I need help on:

"Minimize data transfers using techniques such as fast dormancy (3GPP), caching, and others to minimize signaling load on base stations."  ...what does this mean?

I will appreciate any help understanding this comment.

Over is to minimise mobile congestion with connection and persistent connection to base station unnecessarily. At the same time to stay efficient by maximizing every connection established. This some sort alluding to content delivery network where cache is done at local some instead of always making longer trip to base station. Likewise for father normalcy the idea is not to tear down and build connection to many or unnecessarily. Sort of reducing the chance for new connection instead and optimized already established or going to established connection call...hope those make senses...one example below http://m.computerworld.com/s/article/9191759/Fast_dormancy_to_improve_smartphone_networking_and_battery_performance_?mm_ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fsearch%3Fhl%3Den%26gl%3DGB%26ie%3DUTF-8%26source%3Dandroid-browser%26q%3Dfaster%2Bdormancy%2Bmobile%2Bbase%2Bstation
