CCMI Roundtable: 2015 Technology & Regulatory Outlook
Stay on top of the technology and regulatory issues that drive the industry and your business
2015 starts with a full slate of challenging regulatory and policy issues for federal and state regulators and legislators…and very likely, legal battles as well.
- Net neutrality, and the likelihood of reclassification of the internet, has the industry – and the public -on edge as they wait for the FCC’s ruling in late February.
- Close behind is the network technology transition from TDM to IP, and with it a host of thorny questions on IP to IP interconnection, copper retirement, service discontinuance and functionally equivalent service replacement
- The on-going, seemingly endless, FCC investigation into ILEC special access prices has several checkpoints in 2015 that may signal some action by the FCC
- And each of these contentious issues carry the very real possibility of extended legal challenges…and a continuing cloud of uncertainty for service providers and enterprise end users alike.
The CCMI Roundtable is the ideal format to stay abreast of these and other emerging issues, all of which have a very real impact on your network and your business. In a concise 60 minute rapid fire format, our panel frames each issue, walks you through possible outcomes and timelines and then answers your most difficult questions. The Roundtable is moderated by CCMI’s George David and features FCC insider Andy Regitsky, Professional Services, CCMI and attorney Jim Lister with the Washington law firm of Birch, Horton, Bittner and Cherot, P.C.
