Now That's Growth
Cisco on Tuesday released its Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, an annual report examining trends in the mobile Internet and the increasingly pressing demands that mobile data places on service provider infrastructure.
The research is part of Cisco's VNI series, an ongoing set of Cisco-developed research reports designed to predate global traffic growth, and the Global Mobile Data update focuses on consumer and business mobile data traffic and its key drivers. Cisco uses third-party sources for some of its data collection -- such as service providers' expectations for subscriber growth in certain market segments -- but develops the research and conclusions in-house.
CRN got a look at some of the findings, and here are 10 data points from the mobile data VNI to ponder.
