1. A method for enhancing resource management in a wireless network through selective data compression to reduce mobile data traffic and signaling traffic, the method, comprising:

  • compressing, using a compression dictionary, an uncompressed data chunk in a data stream to be transmitted over the wireless network to generate a compressed data chunk;

    comparing sizes of the uncompressed data chunk with the compressed data chunk;

    transmitting an optimized data stream comprising of the uncompressed data chunk or the compressed data chunk over the wireless network, depending on which is smaller in size;

    wherein, a header is included in the optimized data stream to indicate which of uncompressed data chunk and the compressed data chunk is transmitted;

    wherein the data stream runs above a transport layer and below a session layer, andwherein the compression dictionary is updated if the compressed chunk is transmitted and wherein the compression dictionary is not updated if the uncompressed chunk is transmitted.
