I’m sure this is going to hit home for a few of you. We’re all technologists, or at the very least, users of technology. Being a millennial, I love leveraging new systems, methods of communication, and advanced technologies designed to make life easier.
However, I also remember that there was a time when we could simply “disconnect.” I remember it was easy for one simple reason – there was nothing to connect to.
Our world is increasingly becoming connected and digital. The latest Cisco Visual Networking Index indicates some interesting trends going into 2021:

Annual global IP traffic will reach 3.3 ZB by 2021. In 2016, global IP traffic was 1.2 ZB per year or 96 EB (one billion Gigabytes) per month.
Global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next 5 years, and will have increased 127-fold from 2005 to 2021.
Busy-hour internet traffic is growing more rapidly than average internet traffic. Busy-hour (or the busiest 60-minute period in a day) internet traffic increased 51 percent in 2016, compared with 32-percent growth in average traffic.
Smartphone traffic will exceed PC traffic by 2021. In 2016, PCs accounted for 46 percent of total IP traffic, but by 2021 PCs will account for only 25 percent of traffic. Smartphones will account for 33 percent of total IP traffic in 2021, up from 13 percent in 2016.

By 2021, traffic from wireless and mobile devices will account for more than 63 percent of total IP traffic.
