[IDC]: "Fixed and mobile operators will have to deal with a new reality"

A new research by Matt Davis (pictured), Program Director, IDC finds that "Internet-generated broadband traffic will increase approximately 50% year over year on fixed networks and double on mobile networks .. fixed and mobile traffic volumes are driven by power users that are gorging themselves on a disproportionate amount of bandwidth, a practice that has some network administrators reaching for the Pepto-Bismol .. Web browsing, peer-to-peer file sharing, audio/video streaming, and a host of other applications are all driving bandwidth consumption .. HD video content will drive a new level of bandwidth demand, with more than 50% of video and audio streaming destined for a connected TV (either directly or indirectly), an iPad, or another mobile device or tablet".
"Fixed and mobile operators will have to deal with a new reality that will tax network resources to the limit —and perhaps past the limit".
