Dean Bubley’s Disruptive Wireless: New Cisco mobile VNI numbers bring some realism

Makes a welcome change from “exponential” and similar hyperbole in the past.

Cisco has put out its revised 2012-2017 forecasts for mobile data traffic. I’m horribly busy today so I can’t put out a forensic analysis or listen in live to the webcast.

However, a couple of headlines:

Cisco has reported global mobile data growth of 70% during 2012, and revised down its 2013 mobile data traffic forecasts from 2.4EB to 1.6EB, and 2016 forecasts from 10.8EB to 7.4EB (EB=Exabyte). I think it’s still being over-enthusiastic, but this is a welcome return to a sense of reality.
