-The consumerization of IT driven by the use of consumer-oriented devices and applicationscrossing over into the SMB and enterprise markets
-The increased adoption and usage of videoconferencing across the consumer, SMB, and enterprise markets
-Technology advances in the underlying foundation of mobile video driven by rapidly growing network broadband capacity and compounded by the growth of video-capable mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets
