Cisco: video to increase IP traffic

John-Paul Kamath

Video will drive a 21% compound annual growth rate in business internet protocol traffic across Wans from 2006 to 2011, according to a forecast on global IP traffic released by Cisco. Cisco also found that P2P traffic will more than quadruple from 649 petabytes per month in 2006 to 2,836 petabytes per month in 2011.

Internet video streaming and downloads are beginning to take a larger share of bandwidth, and will grow from 9% of all consumer internet traffic in 2006 to 30% in 2011.

In wireless, combined traffic from 3.5G and WiMax networks will make up over half of all mobile data traffic by 2011, driven largely by portable computers with HSDPA and WiMax cards.
