Huawei is seeking to give telcos greater oversight of their networks so that they can both manage network traffic efficiently and be able to give end users greater control over the speeds and services that they receive on the LTE network. One feature demonstrated was the ability for the network to prompt a user watching a low-quality YouTube video on their smartphone to upgrade to a higher-speed account so that they could watch the video in higher quality.
