The Cisco Visual Networking Index™ (Cisco VNI™), is an ongoing initiative to track and forecast the impact of visual networking applications. This project predicts in just four years time, online video will account for four-fifths of the world’s Internet traffic.
Over-the-top streaming TV will drive the growth.
Video is set to be the predominant driver of all online traffic. The Cisco report says that it would take a single viewer 5 million years to watch the amount of video that will cross the network in a single month by 2019.
