The number of DDoS attacks grew 172 percent in 2016 and will increase 2.5-fold to 3.1 million by 2021 globally.

As the number of Internet users increases, and broadband connectivity becomes more pervasive, the amount of video and virtual reality consumed is growing by leaps and bounds. IP traffic is expected to increase four times in the next four years as internet-enabled devices will shoot up to 2 billion in 2021. They'll account for more than half of 27.1 billion devices and connections, Cisco projects.

As present trends indicate, video will continue to drive traffic in the country. Playing a larger role in all this will be live internet video-such as streaming of TV apps and personal live streaming on social networks-which will see 15-fold growth and hit 13 percent of internet video traffic by 2021. The consumption rate as well as quality will increase in the next five years.

"Mobile networks, devices and connections in India are not only getting smarter in their computing capabilities but are also evolving from lower-generation network connectivity (2G) to higher-generation network connectivity (3G, 3.5G, and 4G or LTE)", said Sanjay Kaul India Head of Cisco.

Globally, 23 percent of Internet traffic will be carried on regional backbones (without touching cross-country backbones) by 2021, compared to 20 percent in 2016. Wi-Fi hotspots will also see a huge growth worldwide, with 526.2 million units estimated to be in the wild by Cisco's deadline - with China, the United States and Japan all expected to lead the way.
