In 2013 Internet traffic will be four times larger than it is today, with the equivalent of 10 billion DVDs crossing the Internet each month. That’s the view of Cisco Systems (CSCO) in a new research paper  filled with great big numbers about Internet traffic growth.
The bottom line: brace for an explosion of video traffic. The Cisco Visual Networking Index projects that video will account for 91 percent of all consumer Internet traffic by 2013. Internet video will be 60 percent of all traffic, with TV, video on demand and P2P video sharing accounting for the remainder.
Some other data points of note:
In short, Cisco sees huge traffic growth ahead that will test current infrastructure capacity. Say, anyone know where we can get some routers and switches?
