A classification for mobile broadband services and applications is proposed that distinguishes between interactive and distribution services, and identifies the types of information supporting each one. A taxonomy is also proposed for applications' characterization parameters, divided into five different types: service characteristics, traffic and communications parameters, service components, and operation environments. Because the multiservice traffic analysis of a mobile broadband system, with a given mixture of applications, requires the definition of their main operation environments, the respective deployment scenarios are defined. By incorporating these classifications and available forecast information, predictions of broadband application usage in deployment scenarios such as residential, business, and industrial markets are presented
