Mitel conducted an informal, real-time survey of about 1,500 participants in a webinar it ran in late November. Among the results: 53 percent predict that mobile phones will become the dominant communication device in the workplace, 90 percent responded that virtualization will be more important in their network this year, and 74 percent believe they can achieve a stronger ROI using a best-of-breed network approach versus a sole provider.

Carl Weinschenk spoke to Stephen Beamish, the company's vice president of marketing and business development, about the trends to which these results point.
