The Zettabyte Era has Arrived!

zettabyte-infographReady for this?  The Zettabyte Era is upon us!

That forecast comes from networking equipment giant Cisco Systems, who recently released its latest Visual Networking Index that forecasts the bandwidth explosion happening.  CISCO predicts that global IP traffic will grow 300% ushering in the zettabyte era for IP traffic through put.  What the heck is a “ZETTABYTE”? Try this on for size: its equivalent to one and a half trillion gigabytes, ahem… PER YEAR.

Where is this coming from? High-definition streaming video, intelligent devices (i.e. the Internet of Things), virtual reality, and mobile device explosion in emerging countries like Africa.  What does this mean for business?   Large-scale and enterprise data centers, extreme networks of infrastructure, and lets not forget the enormous amount of data collateral this includes.  In addition to tripling cloud storage and services, we will see a push for new data and video compression techniques.  Somehow we need be able to push that projected IP traffic through existing and future broadband networks!

Emerging and Maturing Markets

Cisco predicts that “global network connections” will jump by 21 billion. These will be link devices, handhelds and IoT devices like smart cars.  As the “smart phone” conquers emerging markets, we will begin to see an on-slot of the need for greater bandwidth.  Business IP traffic in the Middle East and Africa will grow at a rate of 21 percent, a faster pace than the global average of 18 percent.
