IP Traffic Surge Fuels Bandwidth Needs for 1 G Service in Texas
Technology might be evolving every day, but one trend showing no signs of changing any time soon is the heightened demand for faster, higher bandwidth service.
Well, according to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, that number is multiplying by the day in large part due to the fact that one-third of the worlds’ population is now online and IP traffic had increased eightfold over the five years leading up to 2010 and will quadruple by 2015, hitting 966 exabytes (nearly one zettabyte) for the full year. Moreover, worldwide IP traffic hit 20.2 exabytes per month in 2010, and 242 exabytes per year.
Not only do companies need more bandwidth, they need high-performance bandwidth with the resiliency, security and redundancy to support their most important business applications. More and more, businesses are demanding speeds from 100 Mbps to 1Gb. High bandwidth speeds, like 1 G services provide countless benefits with regards to speed and capacity for both business and carriers — large businesses connecting major office locations and data centers, wholesale carriers for aggregating traffic on strategic routes or reselling capacity to their large customers.
