Just as networking pros have learned to prepare for the network impact of Patch Tuesday with PCs, they must be ready for smartphone and tablet operating system updates, which will consume considerably more bandwidth with larger and more frequent waves of data, said Mark Urban, senior director of product marketing at Blue Coat Systems.

Mobility and the consumerization of IT will force network managers to be more agile and flexible at fixing performance problems in 2012. The bring your own device (BYOD) revolution will also cause IT to focus on how mobile workers can send and receive data more securely on mobile devices.

Another IT trend chewing up WAN bandwidth in 2012 is the growth of video.
