Why CITA Is Important For Arizona

  • The infrastructure to support Arizona's Links To The Electronic Future is evolving within a complex maze of multiple interests, new and emerging technologies, dramatically changing government regulation, growing consumer requirements and highly competitive telecommunications industries.
