  1. Great event. Question for Stacey:

    In your introduction, you mentioned some interesting stats, but I couldn’t hear them clearly.

    I thought you said
    - 41% of network traffic is HTML (of which 20% is P2P video, and 8% video streaming). Is that correct

    If so, what is consuming the other 59%

    If not, what is correct %

      Sach, the data is from Telegeography. In 2009, Email was 5 percent of traffic, VoIP was 4 percent, gaming was 3 percent, IM was 2 percent, IP VPN was 8 percent and the rest was other.
