North America posted quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year growth as a result of improving economic conditions and a return to enterprise telephony spending.

Infonetics expects the UC application segment to grow 21.3 percent in 2013, and the enterprise PBX market to decline 2.6 percent.
Telephony spending remains stagnant as businesses rely on existing solutions.
