Petere, a view of this phenomenal set of projections from Lightwave's Stephen Hardy:
The 2018 Cisco VNI for the mathematically challenged
November 27, 2018, Stephen Hardy [Ed. Director & Assoc. Publisher]

Cisco has released its 2018 Visual Networking Index (VNI). As usual, this year’s VNI reports stupefyingly large numbers related to the internet that tech company marketing departments everywhere will quote for the next 12 months.

The VNI is the only reason anyone without a math or science degree has ever encountered the prefixes exa- and zetta-. Most of us without the prerequisite schooling have no idea what these prefixes mean exactly. But we’re aware that they signify really big numbers. For the record, “exa-“ denotes 1018, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000. “Zetta-“ is 1021, so you can just add three more zeroes to the exa- number. A zettabyte is bigger than an exabyte. But both are really too big to think about for many without the aid of some sort of mind-altering substance.
