Study Cisco ® Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast for 2011 to 2016, released on Tuesday, 14/02, reveals that the global mobile datatraffic will increase 18 times in that period to a total of 10.8 exabytes per month - or a volume of 130 exabytes per year - until 2016. For Brazil is expected to increase by19 times, a total of 0.26 alcaçando exabytes per month in 2016.
The expected sharp increase in mobile traffic is due in part to a projected increasein the number of mobile devices connected to the Internet, which will exceed the number of the world population, which according to UN estimates, 7.3 billion must be inhabitants by 2016. Between 2011 and 2016, Cisco estimates that the global mobile data traffic will exceed three times the global fixed data traffic.
This volume data set of 130 exabytes of mobile data traffic is equivalent to:
33 billion DVDs
4.3 quadrillion MP3 files (music / audio).
813 quadrillion text messages (SMS).
This increase in traffic volume represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR -Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 78% for the same period. Only the volume ofadditional traffic for the mobile Internet between 2015 and 2016 amounts toapproximately three times the estimated size of all mobile internet in 2012. The following trends are leading to these significant increases:
1.Mais streaming content: With consumer expectations increasingly by on-demand content versus streaming or downloaded content simply, cloud mobile traffic will increase, growing 28 times between 2011 and 2016, with an annual growth of 95%.
2.Mais Mobile Connections: There will be more than 10 billion mobile devicesconnected to the Internet in 2016, including modules machine-to-machine (M2M) -exceeding the planet's population projected at 7.3 billion.
3.Maior Processing Capability Devices: Mobile devices are becoming morepowerful and therefore able to consume and generate more data traffic. The tablets are an excellent example of this trend, generating levels of traffic will grow 62 timesbetween 2011 and 2016 - the highest growth rate of any device category consideredin the forecast. The volume of mobile data traffic generated by tablets in 2016 (oneexabyte per month) will be four times greater than the monthly total global mobile datatraffic in 2010 (237 petabytes / month).
4.Maiores Speeds Mobile Connection: The connection speed mobile network is akey factor for the growth of mobile data traffic. More speed means moreconsumption, and connection speeds (including 2G, 3G and 4G) was projected to grow nine times between 2011 and 2016.
5. More Videos: Mobile mobile users want the best experience possible and in general this means mobile videos, which represent 71% of mobile data traffic in 2016.
The Cisco study also projects that 71% of all smartphones and tablets (1.6 billion)might be able to connect to an Internet protocol for mobile version 6 (IPv6) by 2016.From a broader perspective, 39% of all mobile devices in the world (more than fourbillion), could be IPv6 compatible by 2016.
