Cisco’s Visual Networking Index

Mobile data traffic volumes are growing at an increasing rate due to the wider availability of LTE networks, an increase in smartphone usage and the emergence of machine-to-machine (M2M) connections. According to Cisco’s latest Visual Networking Index (VNI), this traffic will continue to grow 10-fold in the next five years.

Cisco  publishes its VNI twice a year, warning operators about the meteoric rise of data usage (and hoping they’ll use its equipment and services to cope with it). This year, the networking vendor says 88% of global mobile data traffic was “smart in 2014” (i.e. using a minimum of 3G connectivity and advanced computing capabilities), but that number will rise to 97% by 2019.
