This report, a product of NASCIO's Infrastructure Subcommittee, is intended to provide an understanding of the fundamental issues facing organizations as they assess VoIP and IP Telephony. It contains a description of the operation and functionality of the legacy PSTN, an explanation of voice transport over the Internet and IP Telephony, and a discussion of the issues and drivers associated with the migration from the PSTN to converged voice and data networks.

About The Enterprise Architecture Program

The NASCIO Enterprise Architecture program was developed to enable the mission of state and local government. Government must continually reinvent itself to remain relevant by effectively and efficiently providing services to the citizens of this country. The path to this continual transformation must embrace leadership, management, coordination, communication and technology throughout government. Enterprise architecture is the discipline to appropriately define and leverage these capabilities within the complexities of government.

Funding to support the NASCIO EA Program and information sharing initiative is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
