Cisco Visual Networking Index Forecast 2009-2014 At-a-Glance

IP Traffic is going onward and upward in 2014 with traffic expected to cross the ¾ of a Zettabyte threshold

In less than a half decade from now, the IP traffic on the global network will be:

  • More Visual: 91+% of all consumer traffic will be driven by video
  • More Collaborative: web-based conference and high definition video conference are driving the growth on the business front
  • More Mobile: overall mobile traffic will be 39X in 2014 than it is in 2009
  • More Connected: overall number of consumer devices will reach 12 billion in 2014 -- 50% more than what was forecast in 2013

This changing landscape has an impact on providers, regulators and consumers alike, and I’ll cover some of that in the video below. There is a lot more to discover though, I encourage you to see for yourself at our site, the Cisco VNI Forecast.

I’ll be back soon to take on a few of these trends in future posts. Until then!
