Although we may think IP is everything, Internet traffic is not the only type of traffice carried by telecommunication transmission systems.
If you take the entire cable system from a transmission engineer's point of view, it looks different than from an IP engineer's point of view.

Remember last year during the earthquake near Tawain, air traffic control and pstn voice capacity came back faster than Internet capacity.

Convergence isn't all its cracked up to be.
