Data Traffic Trends for Mobile Broadband Modems and WWAN/Wi-Fi Routers

Modern portable and mobile computers - those with an extensible operating system, QWERTY keyboard, and multimedia display - when attached to an aftermarket cellular or mobile broadband modem generate data network traffic usage patterns most similar to wired broadband networks. A 2009 ABI Research study detailed global and regional trends in mobile data traffic for handsets, embedded computing, modems and routers, and consumer electronics devices. Using the latest device shipment and mobile subscriber data, ABI Research found that modems and routers transferred more than 740 Petabytes (PB) of information during 2008. In 2014, more than ten times the mobile data traffic will be transferred annually on computing devices connected to external modems and mobile travel routers than in 2008.This Research Report further explores the growth of mobile data traffic by modems and routers from 2008 to 2014.
