The Effect of Taxation/Regulation on VoIP 2.0
The FCC has vowed to do its best to keep from taxing VoIP, but politicians are screaming to regulate it, tax it, and secretly, even kill it. One problem is that the Universal Service Fund is drying up as expected. As of late 2004 the company that runs the fund, Universal Service Administration Corp. has asked regulators to increase the percentage of long distance revenue that service providers have to pay from 8.9% to 12.5%!

Others say that amount needs to be doubled to 25%. Potential regulation combined with E-911 and CALEA concerns mean the road to VoIP 2.0 will have to be routed through Washington, D.C.

With the proliferation of VoIP, especially in residential networks and the ever-diligent FCC turning their sites on VoIP compliance with CALEA implementation issues become vitally important. Unfortunately, CALEA implementation on VoIP networks is problematic for service providers. This session will address CALEA implementation issues and address issues with both traditional and IP-based networks.

The FCC has made several rulings in favor of the VoIP industry in recent months. And yet, the regulatory playing field is in constant flux. This moderated panel discussion of the regulatory issues relating to Internet telephony and IP services will leave attendees with a thorough understanding of the situation. This presentation will further explore various policy issues, address the current status of the debate, and assess the impact of these developments on different VoIP technologies (cable, DSL, wireless, satellite, powerline broadband) as well as the prospects for future investment.

E-911 is an afterthought in many new VoIP networks and it is a matter of time before VoIP becomes linked with a technology that is potentially unsafe and not ready for prime time. Currently many VoIP providers need to manually update their databases to make sure that 911 calls get routed to the proper PSAPs and that the proper address is on file. This process takes time and leaves room for potential mishap if their customer dials 911 before the database is updated. This session will discuss the current state of E-911 readiness in regards to VoIP networks. Don’t miss this crucial insight into this critical issue.

Thursday - 02/24/05,  4:00-4:45pm

Nationwide, an estimated 200 million calls are made to 911 each year. In areas serviced by enhanced 911, the call is routed to the proper local 911 center for the caller location, and the local 911 center has equipment and database information that display the caller’s phone number and address to the call taker. With the transition to VoIP and WiFi telephony, tracing emergency calls and tracking the caller’s location becomes more challenging. Furthermore, regulatory issues surrounding E911 remain at the forefront of the telecommunications discussion in Washington, D.C. Come hear what the industry’s leading minds have to say about this compelling topic.
