These, added to the downloading of content from the Internet across a dizzying array of music and entertainment, legal, governmental, and scientific applications consume spiraling volumes of bandwidth, sending networks racing to keep up. With 100 million annual downloads on YouTube alone, whole scales of measurement must be recalibrated to comprehend how great is the need for capacity, performance and reliability.
