Restatement of VNI global mobile data traffic

We are appreciate the global mobile data traffic forecasts provided by Cisco's VNI team. However, we found some restatements of actual data you provided. Such as in Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Forecast, 2017–2022 white paper, the actual total mobile data traffic was 6.7EB per month for 2016, but in 2016-2021 white paper, the actual total mobile data traffic was 7.2EB per month for 2016. Thus, it's a bit difficult to compare actual data in 2017 to 2016 due to the restatements of historical data, which were not provided in latest white paper.

 

If it is possible, could you provide restated historical actual data for better comparison and to learn the growth trend?

Thanks VNI team's efforts for maintaining the useful database.

Re: Restatement of VNI global mobile data traffic

Thanks for your interest in Cisco VNI Global Mobile Forecast.  Following are the numbers for global mobile traffic:

Cisco VNI IP Traffic Volumes - Historical and Forecast      
         
Region: Global      
Traffic Segment Mobile      
         
         
Year Traffic (PB/mo)      
2005                         1      
2006                         3   Note:  
2007                       11   2005-2016 Actual
2008                       30   2017 Estimated
2009                       75   2018-2022 Projected
2010                     199      
2011                     399      
2012                     686      
2013                  1,292      
2014                  2,379      
2015                  4,408      
2016                  6,738

2018                19,009      
2019                28,560      
2020                40,770      
2021                56,799      
2022                77,493

As you know the base year of the forecast is our estimates that we true up next year to actuals based upon the data that gets actually reported by operators and other regulatory agencies around the world.

 

I hope the above is helpful.

Re: Restatement of VNI global mobile data traffic

Hi Shruti,

 

Thank you and VNI team very much for providing the data. It is very very helpful.

 

I understood that the base year is estimated, and I believe it's would be more helpful if we could get actual numbers when it true up next year for better comparison.

If it is possible, could we have the actual data (2013-2016) by device type and by region as below?

We really appreciate your team's help and believe the data is very useful for lots of researchers. 

Thank you a lot!
