Ericsson Mobility Report: Mobile video traffic continues to dominate

In the first part of this two-part series we looked at the evolution of 5G and its commercial future. The need for 5G has been underlined by the driving force and increasing dominance of mobile video traffic, which is forecast to grow by around 50 percent annually through to 2022, when it will account for nearly three quarters of all mobile data traffic. One of the drivers of this traffic has been the increased use of embedded video in social media and web pages. The growth can be partly attributed to the emergence of larger device screens, higher resolutions and new platforms supporting live streaming. New applications are also helping to shift relative volumes of varying types of traffic, although each device size accounts for different forms of viewing.
