Federal, state and local government policy makers and elected officials are dealing with complex decisions about communications technology, legislation and regulations. End-user devices are becoming increasingly sophisticated, pushing communications networks, technology standards and related operational workflows to evolve quickly.

One of the most important — and complex — changes is the move from traditional copper loops to IP networks.
