Cisco's latest Visual Networking Index (VNI) is out, and the data usage numbers are as staggering as ever.

Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO)'s latest report suggests that mobile data traffic will grow eightfold by 2018, essentially doubling every year until then. The growth will largely be driven by all forms of video consumption, which today makes up 53% of overall traffic and will grow to 69% by 2018. (See Cisco's VNI: Stone Tablet or Debating Tool? and Cisco Report Predicts Mobile Domination in 2017.)

Cisco says that by 2018, global traffic will reach 18 exabytes per month, and the total number of mobile Internet connections will have exceeded the world’s population.

Check out the company's infographic below for a look at the data tsunami -- and FaceTime usage in particular.

video calls
The FaceTime stats are noticeable. I expect video calling to get a lot more common, outside of just Apple devices, on LTE.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
