Cisco’s annual report, predicting Internet usage in the future, forecasts that the traffic from wireless devices will exceed that from wired devices by 2015, with a 54%/46% split.

Some other interesting milestones it notes are that annual global IP traffic will quadruple over the next 5 years and will reach the zettabyte threshold. In 2015, the number of Internet-connected devices will be twice as high as the number of people on the planet, with non-PC devices accounting for 15% of the Internet traffic (rising from its 3% share last year).

The report also predicts that by 2015, almost 3 billion people will be surfing the Internet, which is more than 40% of the world’s population.
