Are you sure that your CLEC provider isn't doing this for you?  We do.
CLECs are required to provide this service, and the translations happen in
our switch when you send us an x11 call.  So you shouldn't have to do

Question for other ITSPs out there: what are you doing for 711 TTY relay

I know so little about this area it's sad.  Are we supposed to either staff
our own relay staff, pass them off to a third-party relay service, or pass
the calls off to a state-provided service?  Can this be done with a
third-party service a-la what 911Enable and friends do for 911 PSAP routing?
What companies out there provide services like this?

If the states you provide service in have an 800 number for connecting to a
state-run relay service, can I simply translate 711 to the appropriate 800
number and terminate the 800 call as I normally would?
