Cisco Visual Networking Index Predicts Internet Traffic in India by 2020 to be 249x the volume of the entire Indian Internet in 2005

Bengaluru: According to the 11th Annual Cisco® Visual Networking Index (VNI) Forecast, Internet Protocol (IP) traffic will quadruple, year-on-year between 2015 and 2020. India’s Internet traffic in 2020 will be equivalent to 12 billion DVDs per year, 1 billion DVDs per month, or 1 million DVDs per hour. The Indian digitization transformation, based on the adoption of personal devices and deployment of machine-to-machine (M2M) connections will have a greater impact on traffic growth. Over the next five years, in India, there will be 1.9 billion networked devices, up from 1.3 billion in 2015, faster broadband speeds (average fixed broadband speed to increase 2.5-fold from 2015 to 2020 – from 5.1 Mbps to 12.9 Mbps) and the increased consumption of video. Collectively, these variables are expected to help IP traffic in India to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34 percent – as against a corresponding global CAGR of 22 percent.

Video services and content continue to be the dominant leader compared with all other applications.

In India, total Internet video traffic (business and consumer, combined will be 75% of all Internet traffic in 2020, up from 51% in 2015.
