When I talk to service providers around the world, many of them tell me how difficult it is to capture intelligent information about their customers’ mobile usage, including whom their top customers are, which social media sites are being accessed, and what information is being streamed live. What’s more, mobile data and usage continues to grow exponentially which will make capturing this information even more difficult over time.

In addition, mobile data traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 57 percent, reaching 24.3 exabytes per month by 2019.

We’re always looking for ways to improve the experience at Cisco tradeshows and other events. There’s free Wi-Fi. And attendees can download the Cisco Events app (powered by GenieConnect by Lanyon) for information about all global events.

“May you live in interesting times,” the old saying goes. With its explosion in intelligent connections, the Internet of Everything makes this one of the most exciting times to be alive — ever.
But you already knew that.
The real fun begins when we consider that as dynamic as technology change appears to be in 2015, this is only the beginning. Mobility, video, analytics, and other technologies have already transformed our jobs, our home lives, the ways we socialize, access entertainment, you name it.
