Cisco, Pew Research Offer New Free Studies

Cisco continued its “ongoing initiative to track and forecast the impact of visual networking applications” by announcing the availability of its latest study, “Visual Networking Index: Forecast and Methodology, 2010-2015.” Among the highlights:

• Within 4 years, annual global IP traffic will reach nearly a zettabyte (996 exabytes)
• Global IP networks will deliver over 7 petabytes every 5 minutes in 2015

Pew Research also released results from a new survey, “Internet Phone Calls.” They found that nearly a quarter of American adult Internet users have placed an online call, while, on any given day, 5% of Internet users go online to place phone calls. Both of these figures represent notable increases from results tallied in previous Pew surveys.
