Cisco predicts a considerable increase in the adoption of mobile technologies that will make the Internet of Everything more sustainable
In its Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, Cisco predicts that mobile data traffic will increase near eightfold between 2015 and 2020, reaching 30.6 exabytes per month by 2020. There will be 1.5 mobile devices per capita, with a total of 11.6 billion mobile-connected devices (which is estimated to exceed the projected population at that time – 7.8 billion). In terms of types of connections, Cisco estimates that 4G will be 40.5 percent of connections, but 72 percent of total traffic. Based on these figures, it is expected that this higher adoption of mobile technologies by end users will make the Internet of Everything (IoE) more sustainable.
