  • Interesting Facts on Network & Bandwidth Consumption

    • Nearly one-third of IP traffic will come from TVs, handsets, and other non-PC devices by 2016. In 2011, 22 percent of IP traffic originated with non-PC devices. By 2016, the non-PC share of IP traffic will grow to 31 percent.
    • It would take over 6 million years to watch the amount of video that will cross global IP networks each month in 2016. Every second, 1.2 million minutes of video content will cross the network in 2016.
    • Internet video will drive most consumer Internet traffic through 2016. The sum of all forms of IP video (Internet video, IP VoD, video files exchanged through file sharing, video-streamed gaming, and videoconferencing) will ultimately reach 86 percent of total IP traffic.
    • Video-on-demand traffic will triple by 2016. The amount of VoD traffic in 2016 will be equivalent to 4 billion DVDs per month.
    • The number of devices connected to IP networks will be nearly three times as high as the global population in 2016.  There will be nearly three networked devices per person in 2016, up from more than one networked device per person in 2011.
    • Traffic from wireless devices will exceed traffic from wired devices by 2014. In 2016, wired devices will account for 39 percent of IP traffic, while Wi-Fi and mobile devices will account for 61 percent of IP traffic.
    • Business IP traffic will grow at a CAGR of 22 percent from 2011 to 2016. Increased adoption of advanced video communications in the enterprise segment will cause business IP traffic to grow by a factor of 3 between 2011 and 2016.
