The world is experiencing a record-breaking surge in data traffic as telecom companies struggle to cope with the growing volume of data flowing in and out of their networks, data analyst Eric Lichtblau said.
Lichtblauer, who runs a global network analysis company called Networks Intelligence, said data transmission was reaching an all time high.
He said that data traffic from countries such as China, India, and Russia has exceeded 3.5 petabytes per second, or 10 petabytes of data.
That’s more than a million gigabytes.
Data transmission for the United States has been on the rise for the past five years, and now is approaching the all- time record of 7.2 petabytes, or 50 petabytes.
That is more than 2.5 million gigabyte data streams.
The US data traffic has surpassed the previous high set in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the US was also experiencing an alltime high.
“It’s been on a continuous, all-times-great rise,” Lichtbrink said.
“And now we’re approaching that all-timeline level.”
Lichtbrung said data traffic is expected to double in the next five years as the US population grows to 3.4 billion, the number of people expected to reach the middle age bracket by 2026.
The average age in the US is expected rise to 59 in 2026, up from 59.7 in 2023.
“What we’re seeing is a shift in the technology landscape,” Littbrung added.
“You’re seeing a shift to a global, cloud-based computing environment where the data has to be delivered to a data center, which is quite different than the way we used to deliver data to a mobile phone.”
Data in the airLichtBrung said that as data continues to move around the world, more data is being lost or damaged as it moves through the air.
The number of data-related deaths in the United Kingdom has more than doubled in the past four years, from 14 in 2009 to 40 in 2013.
That means more than two-thirds of all data that reaches a city has been lost.
LichtBrink said the United Nations’ data-protection standards are being undermined by the proliferation of cloud-hosting services, which can take years to reach countries.
The standards are intended to make sure data moves through data centers are safe, secure, and consistent.
“I think we’re at a point where we have the technology infrastructure to deliver reliable and consistent delivery of data in the real world,” Lisi said.
“The question now is whether or not governments are going to take the risk to protect their data in a way that protects their citizens,” Librado said.
