Hi Chris:

Indeed....  hegemonic tendencies/behaviour by telcos aside, I was
attempting to understand if there were 'some' ORGANIZATIONAL dyscrasias
that prohibited 'operationlizing' of VoIP.  To be brief, I would humbly
submit that any malady in this area is worthy of greater exploration IF
ONLY to expedite and effectuate the alignment of org-to-org operational
instruments and their respective interfaces.


Best,
Robert.
