Introduction

Cisco has developed a model for the estimation of future global IP traffic growth. The worldwide leader in networking technology for the Internet, Cisco has a unique ability to gather and interpret IP network data as a result of its broad experience with customers and global reach.

Today networks are an essential part of business, education, government, and home communications.
