Cisco System’s annual Visual Networking Index anticipates an array of opportunities for mobile and wireless delivery, including vast expansion of mobile video services and multiscreen ventures. It also serves as strong ammunition for forces who want to seize spectrum for the growing global demand for mobile bandwidth.
The VNI Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast, issued just before last month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, envisions that video will constitute two-thirds of the world’s mobile data traffic by 2017, a 16- fold increase between now and then. The mobile video load will far exceed other mobile data usage, such as email, Web surfing and machine-to-machine services in the “Internet of Everything.”
Mobile video traffic accounted for 51 percent of the worlds’ Internet traffic at the end of 2012, the first time video took up more than half of all wireless bandwidth, Cisco says.
Several recent analyses and product announcements at the Barcelona mobile trade show underscore Cisco’s great expectations. For example, Parks Associates, a Texas market research firm, singles out the rapid increase of video viewing on tablets and smartphones, and Ericsson was among the technology suppliers to launch new multiplatform capabilities during the Mobile World Congress.

Following the lead of co-founder Bill Gates Microsoft is taking more interest in Africa, announcing its 4Afrika Initiative with a stated aim of improving the continent's global competitiveness. There are several plans under way as a part of the project, with one of the first being a new Windows Phone 8 device from Microsoft and Huawei. Pictured above, the Huawei 4Afrika phone is a specially tailored version of the existing Ascend W1 meant as an affordable option (no price announced yet) for first time smartphone buyers that also comes preloaded with apps created by African developers for African consumers, and a subsection of the existing Windows Phone Store that will continue to focus on "locally-relevant" apps and content. It will be available in blue, red, black and white when it launches later this month in Angola, Egypt, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and South Africa.
Another part of the push is a pilot project Microsoft is working on with the Kenyan government and Indigo Telecom which combines solar powered base stations using TV white space technology to offer affordable wireless internet access. Meant to bring broadband to places that currently lack even electricity, the deployment is called Mawingu, connecting a healthcare clinic and several schools in its initial test. After several years of pushing the tech, which takes advantage of unused TV broadcast spectrum, Microsoft hopes to convince other nations to make the legal/regulatory changes to start using it as well. There's a press release after the break with more details, as well as a video and more information available beyond the source links.
