Adoption of 5G has dominated the news (in anticipation of its rapid rollout over the next few years). More broadly, Service Providers have continued to focus on the key question of how to accommodate increasing bandwidth requirements while rolling out mobile connectivity to an ever-growing proportion of the world’s population. Last week, Cisco published its 12th Mobile VNI Report. This annual report includes highly detailed global, regional and country-level projections concerning all forms of mobile connectivity. As last year, the report predicts universal growth in mobile connectivity, speed and bandwidth usage. Globally, mobile traffic is projected to make up nearly 20 percent of IP traffic – or 930 exabytes annually – by 2022 – nearly 113 times more than mobile traffic ten years earlier. The report also shows the extent to which 5G is predicted to ‘break out’ over the next three years. Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, and The Middle East and Africa, considered as a whole, will see 82 million 5G connections come online by 2022 (out of 422 million globally). It is expected that this expansion in 5G connectivity will be accompanied by the rapid development of a number of exciting applications, including autonomous cars, ‘The Massive IoT’, and AR/VR (all trends referenced in Cisco’s recent ‘Predictions for 2019’).2019-03-01http://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10208/ Cisco Expands Customer Experience (CX) Capabilities in EMEAR and Opens New CX Center in Portugalhttp://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10196Cisco will expand its business support capabilities in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia (EMEAR) with a new Customer Experience (CX) center in Lisbon.2019-02-28http://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10196/ Looking back at Cisco’s 2018 CSR Report – the EMEAR picturehttp://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/10184One of the first things ‘new hires’ often notice at Cisco is how seriously we take our wider responsibilities on the world stage.
