As more and more mundane devices become 'smart', the reign of the personal computer may be at an end.
An increase in web users and smart devices will lead to a major jump in internet use.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to experts from the networking firm Cisco. By 2018, internet usage will be evenly split between PC's and other web accessible devices-including tablets, phones, cameras TVs and even smart home appliances.
The firm claims that internet traffic will increase nearly three-fold over the next five years, largely due to the increase of internet users and devices capable of web access.
In its annual Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Forecast, the firm claims that products such as light bulbs, fridges, cars and even pet accessories already have internet connections, and more and more devices are expected to gain this capability, largely due to technology producers like Apple and Google making devices easy to control.
"The internet of Everything is also gaining momentum and by 2018 there will nearly be as many machine-to-machine connections as there are people on earth," the report said.
Smart cars will have a huge impact due to internet connected navigation and entertainment systems, and even self-driving software, all, which will require an internet connection.
"Smart cars will have nearly four [machine-to-machine] modules per car," the report added.
The amount of internet traffic is expected to increase to 1.6 zettabytes-a billion terabytes, a major milestone according to Doug Webster of Cisco.
"Our first Cisco Visual Networking Index nine years ago established the zettabyte as a major milestone for global IP traffic," he said. "Today, we are firmly in the 'Zettabyte Era' and witnessing incredible innovations and shifts in the industry.
"The reality of the 'Internet of Everything', the increasing demand for network mobility, and the emergency of 4K video are among the key trends highlighted in this year's forecast that represent significant opportunities for service providers today and in the immediate future."
