What Happens in an Internet Minute?

Do you know what happens in one minute on the Internet? In just one minute, more than 204 million emails are sent. Amazon rings up about $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. And more than 61,000 hours of music are played on Pandora while more than 1.3 million video clips are watched on YouTube.  

Computing is transforming and touching more people in a wider range of devices. From smartphones to tablets, netbooks and notebooks and even automotive; it can often seem like every one of us is connected. 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. 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.

So can our existing networks handle this explosion in network traffic and maintain consumer expectations for immediate access from multiple devices? And if the networks can expand to accommodate this growth, can they do it while maintaining security? Telco equipment manufacturers and service providers will be on the hook to ensure that we continue to enjoy access to information and entertainment on our mobile without any interruption to service.

Intel is working with equipment managers and service providers to help them do just that. Just recently, Intel announced its next-generation communications platform, 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.

    Wow, this is a crazy time we are living in and the question is, what will happen if their network doesn’t cope with the traffic, if the network goes down for even 1 minute, it will cost businesses millions.

    • Curtis says:

      Networks do go down and you are correct, it can and does cost companies millions in seconds.
      As a network administrator, we work hard to increase uptime as much as possible, but equipment failure, routing issues, and even the human element comes into play. Fiber optic cable cuts, DNS poisoning, and routing handoffs between carrier transit networks are the variable that is hard to account for. Multiple Internet connections and even multiple power providers feeding data centers are common place today.

      Network outages do and will continue to occur. Network expansion to handle the exponential growth of data transfers will continue to be a challenge.

    Surely the original infographic has a higher resolution than 830×600 pixels. What you’re presenting is very interesting, but hard for some of us with poorer eyesight to read easily. I wanted to link to this on several of my social media outlets, but would like a high resolution image for my readers to see easily.

    Are you able to provide that? If not I’m unfortunately going to have to pass on this until someone else puts forth something similar that is easy to read. Not all of us are teenagers/20-somethings with perfect eyesight.

    Intel has done this studie, you say? How? I have a hard time believing it could be accurate… For example: 30 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute – shouldn’t that be 72 hours (those numbers are a year old, though)? And what about the bittorrent and Usenet traffic, for example, as well as backups being made to servers on the Internet? That has to be more than 640TB in and of itself!

    I would be interested in knowing how much electricity, in kWh, is used globally in that internet minute? Does anyone have access to an approximate value? That’s key to this conversation, IMHO, for as we’re growing in data flow, we’re also growing in the need for energy to power it all.
