1 White Paper Cisco Global Cloud Index Supplement: Cloud Readiness Regional Details What You Will Learn The Cisco Global Cloud Index is an ongoing effort to forecast the growth of global data center and cloud-based IP traffic. The study also includes a Cloud Readiness analysis that investigates the ability of each global region (Asia Pacific, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa, North America, and Western Europe) to support a sample set of basic, intermediate, and advanced business and consumer cloud applications. Each region s cloud readiness is assessed in relationship to the sample services based on download and upload fixed and mobile network speeds as well as associated network latencies (segmented by business and consumer connections). This supplement provides additional country-level details that collectively represent the basis for each region s network performance averages (speeds and latencies). Please see the Cisco Global Cloud Index: Forecast and Methodology, for complete research findings and projections. Country-Level Details of Regional Cloud Readiness The Cloud Readiness portion of the Cisco Global Cloud Index includes over 90 million records from Ookla 1, the Cisco GIST application, and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The network performance data gathered represents nearly 150 countries around the world, covering a span of two years. The regional averages presented in the Cisco Global Cloud Index: Forecast and Methodology, are based on the detailed analysis of these speed tests. Individual countries may have slightly or significantly higher or lower averages compared to their regional averages for download speed, upload speed, and network latency. In some cases, individual countries did not have enough test results to warrant inclusion in a particular network metric category (e.g., fixed or mobile download or upload speed). Hence some countries are included in some categories but excluded from others. For normalization and to prevent skewing of the data, we have applied the 95th percentile methodology to our study (the top 5 percent and bottom 5 percent of results in fixed and mobile performance categories by country are excluded). 1 Measured by Speedtest.net, small binary files are downloaded and uploaded between the web server and the client to estimate the connection speed in kbps Cisco and/or its affiliates.

2 For the purposes of this study, participating countries are classified into two general categories: Cloud Prepared and Cloud Emerging. These categorizations are based on a combination of the country s network download, upload, and latency characteristics. Download speeds in kilobits per second (kbps), upload speeds in kilobits per second (kbps), and latency in milliseconds (ms) were given equal weights in calibrating each country s network performance. Countries that are classified as Cloud Prepared have network performance characteristics that are superior to countries that are classified as Cloud Emerging. The following sections in the supplement present country-level cloud readiness results within each region and category. Countries are listed in alphabetical order. For a discussion about the relationship of application requirements to network capabilities, please refer to the Global Cloud Readiness section of the Cisco Global Cloud Index: Forecast and Methodology, Cloud Prepared: Fixed Tables 1 through 3 provide details on individual countries that are Cloud Prepared. Table 1 lists countries that are cloud prepared based on their overall (consumer and business) fixed network characteristics, Table 2 lists countries that are cloud prepared based on their consumer fixed network characteristics, and Table 3 lists countries based on their business fixed network characteristics.

However, no region s average network characteristics are currently able to support high-end, advanced cloud applications. From an individual country perspective, some countries have average network performance characteristics that are significantly higher than that of their region. Although only a relatively small number of countries are currently able to support advanced cloud services, these countries will promote significantly greater cloud traffic growth rates due to the high-bandwidth services than can be offered over their networks (for example, high-definition video streaming). In general, fixed networks offer better upload and download speeds and latencies than mobile networks. Given the growing global adoption of advanced mobile technologies, such as third- and fourth-generation (3G and 4G) Long-Term-Evolution (LTE) and the worldwide demand for wireless support of next-generation devices such as tablets, e-readers, and smartphones, we expect the performance gap between fixed and mobile networks to begin to close in the near future Cisco and/or its affiliates.

20 The study also indicates that business connections tend to have significantly greater capacity than consumer connections (fixed and mobile). From a business cloud services perspective, many networks are currently capable of supporting intermediate business applications (such as enterprise resource planning, customer resource management, and basic videoconferencing) and some are currently capable of supporting advanced business applications (such as high-definition video and audio conferencing). With the necessary infrastructure in place, businesses and enterprises of all sizes can effectively implement these productivity-enhancing applications and communications services. While consumer connections are not as strong as business connections, they are generally able to support the most popular basic consumer cloud services, such as , instant messaging, web browsing, social networking, and basic video and music streaming.
