By 2022, more IP traffic will cross global networks than in all prior “Internet years” combined up to the end of 2016, according to Cisco’s Complete VNI Forecast. In other words, more traffic will be created in 2022 than in the first 32 years of the Internet.

So where will all the traffic come from? By 2022, 60 percent of the global population will be Internet users. More than 28 billion devices and connections will be online. And video will make up 82 percent of all IP traffic.

Cisco predicts that over the next five years, global IP traffic will triple, reaching 396 exabytes per month by 2022, up from 122 exabytes per month in 2017.
