Cisco VNI Forecast Projects 1.6 Zettabytes of Global IP Traffic by 2018
Last June, Cisco released an update to its annual Visual Networking Index (VNI), 2013 – 2018. The forecast projects a global annual run rate of 1.6 zettabytes IP traffic by 2018 (up from 614 exabytes of global IP traffic in 2013). A zettabyte certainly sounds like a big number (equivalent to 1 billion terabytes, external storage drives generally come in a terabyte denomination). But how can this forecast methodology be applied to an individual cable or a telecommunications provider’s footprint? Our updated Cable/Telco Service Provider Abstract Network (CT-SPAN) tool can help answer this question. CT-SPAN is developed using the latest VNI assumptions for fixed networks and enable you to quickly develop customized service provider scenarios to estimate the annual traffic forecasts and revenue. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
1. Select your region and service provider type as well as some basic subscriber and network info.
2. Provide some high-level application info.
3. Start reviewing/analyzing your customized subscriber and network projections.
