'The Internet in 2015' infographic from Cisco offers some informative insight into future predictions about the world wide web.

This infographic calls 2015 the dawn of the zettabyte (ZB) era which means 1000 exabytes. To put this into perspective, the infographic tells audiences that an exabyte is equal to 36,000 years of HD-TV video or watching the entire Netflix collection 3,177 times. What's more is that in 2015 it will take five years to watch the amount of video that is to be thrown across global networks every second. A truly significant comparison was that if the regular 11 oz coffee on one's desk was equal to one gigabyte (GB), a ZB would mean a coffee with the same volume as the Great Wall of China.
