IP Traffic Long haul vs. Metro vs. Access

 

In the 2015 Zettabyte Era VNI report, Cisco included a traffic pattern analysis of Long Haul, Metro and Access.  I noticed that this was not included in the 2016 VNI report.  Is the data available?  Specifically I would like EB/mth for Long Haul, Metro and Access sections of the network for the years 2015 and 2020, similar to Figure 25 in the 2015 report.

 

Thanks.

We discontinued the metro terminology in acknowledgement of the fact that there was some amount of regional backbone traffic included in the category we have traditionally called “metro”. We are working with our data partners in defining the segment better and are looking for additional sources to differentiate metro-area backbone from truly metro traffic. In the meantime, we do continue to have a CDN traffic forecast, which, in combination with the managed IP VOD forecast, could serve as an adequate way to track traffic that does not cross long-haul backbones.

Hope this helps!
