Cisco Forecasts Dramatic 5G Data Use

According to Cisco, wireless and mobile devices will account for 71 percent of total IP traffic by 2022. And that’s not all they are predicting.

* Mobile data traffic will increase sevenfold between 2017 and 2022.
* Smartphone traffic will exceed PC traffic accounting for 44 percent of total IP traffic
* The average 5G connection will generate 21 GB of traffic per month

This magnitude of projected mobile data growth will not happen without significant cost ramifications. Not only will data be consumed at a significantly higher rate, but the carrier costs will increase per GB used.

3 Critical Takeaways from Ericsson’s 5G Report

The Ericsson Mobility Report from November 2018 reveals its projections for mobility through the year 2024:

* By 2024, 55% of North American mobile devices will be on 5G networks
* Video will represent 74% of all mobile data consumed by 2024 driving usage higher
* Average monthly mobile usage will quadruple to 19GB in 2024

Since we know most data consumed is personal, business-liable devices will dramatically increase unless your company has a strategy to enforce maximum WiFi usage. We start by setting your company’s policy thresholds then send alerts when data usage is reached.

How Companies use Text Alerts to Control Employee Data Usage

Being able to inspect and report data usage in real-time can significantly reduce how much data your employees are using.  When one CIO became concerned about the rising cost of her company’s data use, she found real-time alerts not only significantly reduced mobile data usage, but a byproduct she wasn’t expecting was productivity increased overall.

As this company learned, all it took to significantly reduce mobile expense cost was to identify policy thresholds and send alerts when data usage reached these thresholds. No company today should be paying for the out-of-control data usage habits of its employees especially when education and alerts can be this effective. With the help of MobilSentry™ Real-time, now you don’t have to.
