I would disagree with this assessment. PVU and PIU do not relate to
the way in which we interconnect. In fact, the Court has weighed in
years ago re: "IP in the middle" for AT&T. The fact that IP is used
somewhere in the middle of the call changes nothing. What PIU/PVU are
designed to address is (in theory) end-points. While we can argue all
day long over the relevance of end-point technology, the regulators
appear to have opened that door. They have not, IMO, opened the door
to "IP in the middle" making a difference.
