BT announced in 2015 that they plan to turn off traditional telephony services (ISDN and PSTN), mainly due to these technologies being unable to cope with the volume or quality
of voice data required in today’s world.
The copper-based PSTN and ISDN network will be turned off entirely by 2025. Both business and home phone lines will be effected by the switch off. Also impacted, are other
non-voice services such as alarms, CCTV systems, faxes, lift emergency lines and payment terminals. Which means that certain existing hardware will no longer function without an upgrade or replacement.
Planning ahead will ensure a seamless transition, however, leaving it too late to move from ISDN to a digital alternative could lead to problems and ultimately, loss of service.
If your current ISDN phone contract is up for renewal soon, get in touch, and we will help you find the best solution for your business.
Lots of businesses are already moving to VoIP or Voice Over IP – making their phone calls over the internet rather than a traditional copper phone line.
Voice over IP can be via a cloud system, or you may be able to upgrade your existing system to SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) trunks, which would allow you to replace the ISDN connection but retain an on-premise system. For the other services; faxes, alarms, CCTV etc. they may be able to switch to an IP mode or an adapter (ATA) device could be an option.
Getting ahead of the curve will mean you won’t be left without these services or with a surprise cost. Change may seem daunting, but Norsa can help make it as stress-free as possible. Taking the initiative now allows you to plan properly and put the right solution in place for your business and your customers.
