Over the past several years, the Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) — which projects IP traffic trends based upon independent analyst forecasts, usage surveys from operators and other primary research — has become a valuable resource for many.  Some have called it an industry standard. 

Today, Cisco announced the latest update to the VNI, as well as a new, complementary study―the Cisco VNI Service Adoption Forecast -- which includes projections for residential, consumer mobile, and business services growth rates from 2011 -- 2016. Here are just a few of the top-level findings:

Global Devices/Connections

Global IP Traffic

Global Service Adoption

You can view a 24-minute VNI Highlights video, which features Cisco senior analysts discussing key takeaways from this year’s research.
