If you break it out, that equates to a rate of 37,000 phones per month for the first 4.5 years while the more recent rate is 143,000 phones per month. Interestingly a similar trend is happening across medium and small enterprises as well. These growth rates are indicative of the entire enterprise market based on my conversations with vendors in the industry.
