Global mobile data traffic will grow 18-fold to reach 10.8 exabytes per month
Mobile video will represent 71% of all mobile data traffic.
22% of global mobile data traffic will be offloaded to fixed networks.
Tablets will account for more than 10% of global mobile data traffic.
4G connections will account for 36% of global mobile data traffic
Of course, these numbers attracted a good deal of attention, and mobile operators worldwide are working diligently to keep up with skyrocketing demand. For example, since the VNI numbers were released:
Bell Mobility completed the majority of its Western Canada 4G/LTE buildout with the ASR 5000
And du, a leading integrated service provider in the UAE announced it is deploying a nationwide 4G/LTE network enabled by the ASR 5000
And while the Cisco ASR 5000 is certainly pulling its weight in the core, Cisco is extending its value to the very edge of the network. At Mobile World Congress, Cisco CEO John Chambers declared “We are now entering the post-macrocell era, where small cells also will play a critical role in delivering the next-generation mobile Internet.”
So on February 28 we announced the first carrier-grade, end-to-end, Wi-Fi infrastructure to incorporate the Wireless Broadband Alliance’s Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) technology. With fully integrated intelligence, from the ASR 5000 to the advanced access points, Cisco's small cell solution provides mobile users with simple, seamless, and secure access across multiple heterogeneous access networks.
To dispel any doubts as to the solution's immediate viability or availability, we also announced that …
PCCW had successfully completed a commercial trial of our NGH solution
Smart had conducted succesful lab trials
True had also seen success in lab trials of the solution
The new NGH technology is especially exciting because operators like BT and Shaw, who have already deployed Cisco’s Service Provider Wi-Fi solution across thousands of hotspots will now be able to offer their mobile users a cellular-like experience on Wi-Fi.
To enable a highly flexible, highly economical, and highly efficient network that not only helps operators reduce costs, but also enhances the user experience, is the best possible demonstration that indeed, “It’s not what we make; it’s what we make possible”
