I'd temper the enthusiastic reporting of BYOD by consulting entities a lot.

BYOD is a way to allow VIPs to bring their own status-enhancing
gold-plated trendy devices at work instead of being limited to the
dirt-cheap greyboxes they allowed their IT services to purchase for
everyone else. For the average enterprise minion BYOD does not exist or is
strictly limited to configurations that are affectively identical to
whatever those enterprises used to provide.

The first answer an helpdesk will give to anyone that brought its own
device and can't communicate with the enterprise Intenet gateway will be
"you bought the device, buy the dataplan it needs"
