Many network administrators cringe when they hear "Patch Tuesday" or "New IOS Update," because they know a flood of traffic will hit their network, bearing a startling resemblance to a large-scale DDoS attack. Well, "Marketplace" (my category designation) traffic was 2.65% of downstream traffic this year, and the biggest component of that traffic is from...

Last year, we reported that we saw an uptick in file sharing for the first time in several years. Since we had changed the way that we do the Global Internet Phenomena Report, specifically from a much larger sample size, it was hard to compare apples to apples to provide hard proof. Well, this year we have it, and a big driver was exactly what you would...

The 2019 Global Internet Phenomena Report is almost in the bag, so it is time to start the pre-report series of blogs where I "leak" data out from the report — we might even call this the "Hidden Cam Show," where I expose data for the whole world to see!

Today marks the release of the 2019 Mobile Internet Phenomena Report. There are a number of highlights in this edition of the report, which is exclusively focused on mobile networks (where the Global Report covered all traffic).

The 2019 Mobile Internet Phenomena Report has a new section this year measuring application engagement. This metric, which Sandvine tracks in many of our deployments, answers the question, "What percentage of my subscribers use Application X?" Some of the engagement numbers are pretty astonishing (maybe in a good way, maybe in a bad way).

This is some data that is NOT in the upcoming 2019 Mobile Internet Phenomena Report. This post focuses on a subject near and dear to my heart — gaming!
