Sinefa Network Utilisation Index – 30 June 2016

Are you participating in global data trade?

This week, McKinsey released a report, which included this image – it is animated, so click through to the website. It’s a great reminder that data consumption is growing dramatically and global data trade is already worth more than the value of traded goods!

What are the implications for you?  There is no doubt that data traffic movement will be increasingly important for any organisation, big or small. Being able to know and control the traffic on your network is becoming more important every day and data highways are becoming ever more congested.

This week’s SNUI reminds us once again that 50% of data traffic is made up of browsing and file sharing. When you are contemplating your bandwidth capacity, don’t forget to accommodate all essential traffic. You need to make sure that valuable data isn’t lost or delayed due to other, less important activities.

It's about time network visibility and control was made this simple.
