[VoiceOps] Direct CLEC interconnect - taking the plunge

We are a regional hosted VoIP provider in California. We started as an
ISP and moved into becoming a CLEC offering VOIP. As is probably the
case with most, we started buying DIDs from wholesale carriers as SIP
trunks. The majority of our customers are within a single LATA with a
large minority in an adjoining one.
We are investigating the feasibility of direct interconnect with the
RBOC/ILEC via SS7.
I'm interested in pointers/gotchas as well as recommendations of a
consultant to help us navigate the maze, both from a political and
technical standpoint. Suggestions as what not to do or who not to hire
are also welcome.
Please feel free to respond on-list or off as you feel appropriate.
