@ Technocrati - Yes the CFO is wonder.  Technical decisions made on cost not functionality?  And in technology deployments that can be a challenge.

Re: BYOF
Joe- Your reference to a pay phone is ironic because in many places they are either being removed or be used to house Wireless Access Points.  The housing is durable and it is already there.  Funny how things have changed so much so fast.  And the rate of change is accelerating and hard to keep up with.  Just consider those who do not have access to the internet, and they do exists.  Think how dramatically that will affect their ability to keep up and be competitive in our so called modern workforce?

Re: BYOF
Indeed, Marcia... Urban Dictionary has a whole slew of entertaining (and not family-appropriate, for that matter) BYO[x] abbreviations.

The one I'd like to propose, misanthrope that I am, is this alternative for BYOD: Bring Your Own Dime (to call someone who cares).

But then that's rather outdated.  When's the last time you saw an honest-to-god payphone in real life?

BYOF
The acronym apparently already has a lot of meanings... bring your own food, bring your own friends... the list goes on.

Somehow I don't think that would go over as well as BYOD!

2014 State of Unified Communications
If you thought consumerization killed UC, think again: 70% of our 488 respondents have or plan to put systems in place. Of those, 34% will roll UC out to 76% or more of their user base. And there’s some good news for UCaaS providers.
