Cisco VNI Forecast - Deinifitons of IP Traffic and Internet Traffic

Hi,

 

I see that in Cisco VNI Forecast Highlights Report, IP traffic and Internet Traffic are seperate sections with different data.

Could you advise what's definition and differences between "IP traffic" and "Internet Traffic"?

Hi

  They are filling out the blank. There´s no real difference.  Unless IP wouldn´t be the only Internet protocol. If we had another Internet protocol then we could divide between IP traffic, another protocol Traffic and then Internet Traffic as a total.

You can see looking for the definition on Google. At the end, they are saying the same thing:

 

What does IP traffic mean?
IP Traffic. IP traffic is the flow of data across the internet. IP Traffic is also commonly referred to as web traffic. Since all websites are hosted on servers,
and servers on networks have IP addresses that denote their location, anytime you access a site, you are generating IP traffic.


What is Internet traffic?
Internet traffic is the flow of data within the entire Internet, or in certain network links of its constituent networks. ...
However, Such data excludes traffic that remains within a single service provider's network and traffic that crosses private peering points.
