Abstract. Traditional mobile Unified Communications (UC) clients use data channel over GSM/UMTS network for communication with UC services broker and providers. UC signaling traffic characteristics require large number of short data connection sessions and can cause overload of mobile network. The reason is ratio of overhead data to the useful signaling information. This paper presents analysis of mobile UC architectures and possible use of Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) channel for UC application in mobile domain. The usage of USSD channel can help to provide more effective applications for mobile UC user.
