What happens in an internet minute? (infographic)

20/03/2013

In just one minute, 204 million emails are sent, six million Facebook pages are viewed and 47,000 apps and 1.3 million YouTube clips are downloaded worldwide, according to new research.

This new infographic, from Intel, also that Amazon rings up about $83,000 in sales, 20 million photos are viewed and 3,000 uploaded on Flickr. At least 6 million Facebook pages are viewed around the world and more than 61,000 hours of music are played on Pandora.

Following is an infographic illustrates just how much data passes through the network in 60 seconds. Nearly 640K Gb of global IP data is transferred in just one Internet minute:

Today, the number of networked devices equals the world’s population. By 2015, the number of networked devices is expected to be double the world’s population. And by the time we reach 2015, it would take five years to view all the video content crossing IP networks each second.

Key stats:

• More than 204 million emails are sent
• Amazon rings up about £55,00 ($83,000) in sales
• Around 20 million photos are viewed and 3,000 uploaded on Flickr
• At least 6 million Facebook pages are viewed around the world
• More than 61,000 hours of music are played on Pandora
• More than 1.3 million video clips are watched on YouTube

Nearly 640,00 Gb of global IP data is transferred in just one Internet minute, the researchers found.

"Computing is transforming and touching more people in a wider range of devices," said Intel's Krystal Temple. "But while it’s hard to miss the proliferation of portable devices, it’s what we don’t see that’s the bigger issue. What many don’t see is that the increase in mobile devices has had a tremendous impact on the amount of data traffic crossing the network. 'It’s a little easier to comprehend once we think about all that’s done on a connected device like a smartphone. Listening to music, watching videos, downloading photos, playing online games, refreshing Twitter feeds and status updates – all of those activities generate network traffic."

The study also looked at how the data could expand dramatically in the future. It predicted that by 2015, the number of networked devices is expected to be double the world’s population.

It would take five years to view all the video content crossing IP networks each second by then.

The chip giant also revealed it is developing new networking equipment to deal with the increase in traffic.

Codenamed 'Crystal Forest,' that will boost performance and beef up network security to handle the increasing network traffic. 'By enabling equipment manufacturers and services providers to deliver platforms that grow along with the network, Intel is also enabling consumers to stay connected on intelligent devices every Internet minute of the day,' Intel said.
