WiFi To Exceed Wired Traffic By 2018: Cisco Study | Multichannel.com

WiFi To Exceed Wired Traffic By 2018: Cisco Study | Multichannel.com | Technology News | Scoop.it
In a forecast that bodes well for the cable industry’s ambitious WiFi initiatives in and out of the home, WiFi traffic will exceed wired traffic for the first time by 2018, according to a new report from Cisco Systems. By 2018, Cisco also expects high-definition video traffic to generate more traffic than standard-def for the first time. Those predictions are just two of a report full of them, alongside many other broadband-focused insights that Cisco pulled into its latest Visual Networking Index report, which looks at recent adoption trends and what’s on the horizon between 2013 and 2018. More on mobile broadband – WiFi and mobile-connected devices will generate 61% of IP traffic by 2018, Cisco predicted, noting that WiFi will represent 49% of traffic, cellular 12%, and fixed traffic 39% by then. In comparison, WiFi represented 41%, cellular 3%, and fixed 56% in 2013. IP video, Cisco said, will eat up 79% of all IP traffic by 2018, up from 66% in 2013. Ultra HD, meanwhile, will account for roughly 11% of IP video traffic in four years, up from a mere 0.1% in 2013. HD video, meanwhile, will account for 52% of all IP video traffic by 2018, up from 36% in 2013. On a broader basis, Cisco predicted that global IP traffic will grow nearly three-fold over the next four years – reaching an annual run rate of 1.6 zettabytes, or half a trillion gigabytes by 2018 -- as Internet usage and IP-capable devices proliferate and use broadband to distribute video. Also by 2018, Cisco expects the majority of traffic to originate from devices other than a PC.Click headline to read more--

Insight:  This article is very relevant to the concepts we learned in Unit 1.  It shows that globalization is not as easy as it may seem because of the separation of the worlds regions.

Smart devices think you're 'too lazy' to opt out of privacy defaults

Smart devices think you're 'too lazy' to opt out of privacy defaults | Technology News | Scoop.it
The uproar over Samsung's "eavesdropping" SmartTV last week reveals a potentially invasive type of factory preset — one that consumer and privacy advocates worry gets too easily lost in the fine print.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

As the Internet of Things (IOT) becomes more and more prevalent in our lives, it is critical to uncover all the privacy settings in your mobile devices, applications, entertainment equipment and appliances. The first step to take when any device is connected to the internet is to explore the privacy and security settings. If you are not comfortable sharing the information with the Vendor, turn off the access.

You can imagine the scenario, you’ve got a Google Form perhaps setup as a booking form and a select option for picking timeslots. As the slots fill up you’d like the option to be removed. I was surprised not to find an example of this so here is a rough sketch of some code that might do the job.
