Cisco predicts that mobile network will increase 39 times over the next 5 years.

Report Visual Networking Index is Cisco’s annual summary of traffic development in different networks.

This shows that the global growth of data traffic in mobile networks has increased with 169% over the past year.
For the moment, its a traffic every month around 90 petabyte data over the mobile networks. It’s around  23 million DVDs, according to a press release from Cisco. This means that it will be a traffic, monthly if Cisco is right, around 897 million DVDs sending over the mobile network.

This trend will put great pressure on telecom companies to develop new technologies that can handle data traffic more effectively than it does today.
