Many amongst us do ignoreÂ that the increase in mobile devices has had a tremendous impact on the amount of data traffic crossing the network. Itâ€™s a little easier to comprehend once we think about all thatâ€™s done on a connected device like a smartphone. Listening to music, watching videos, downloading photos, playing online games, refreshing Twitter feeds and status updates â€“ all of those activities generate network traffic. Following is an intel infographic illustrates just how much data passes through the network in 60 seconds. Nearly 640K Gb of global IP data is transferred in just one Internet minute!
Computing is transforming and touching more people in a wider range of devices. From smartphones to tablets, netbooks and notebooks and even automotive; it can often seem like every one of us is connected. But while itâ€™s hard to miss the proliferation of portable devices, itâ€™s what we donâ€™t see thatâ€™s the bigger issue.
Do you know what happens in one minute on the Internet? In just one minute, more than 204 million emails are sent. Amazon rings up about $83,000 in sales. Around 20 million photos are viewed and 3,000 uploaded on Flickr. At least 6 million Facebook pages are viewed around the world. And more than 61,000 hours of music are played on Pandora while more than 1.3 million video clips are watched on YouTube.
In conclusion, todayÂ the number of networked devices equals the worldâ€™s population. By 2015, the number of networked devices is expected to be double the worldâ€™s population. And by the time we reach 2015, it would take five years to view all the video content crossing IP networks each second.
