How are you with change?
The PSTN, or Public Service Telephone Network, used to be big in our lives. All traditional landline calls depended on it.
But in 2025, the PSTN and the ISDN networks will be switched off. So what?
For businesses and organisations, the switch off is a change that matters. It's a change for the better and a change for which you need to be ready.
The job of the PSTN - that being the technology that transmits our voice in a phone call - will fall to our broadband and ethernet connections, aka VoIP. In short, voice is going digital and opening up a world of opportunity in the process.
In practice, this could mean new functionality. Dialling a local number could get you talking to someone anywhere in the UK, a local touch without being local. Telephony and collaboration solutions can scale up and down as needs change. All the stuff that was once the preserve of large businesses, like multi-media contact centres, can now benefit smaller-scale enterprises and what once cost hundreds of pounds per user per month is now tens of pounds per user.
If you are concerned your business could be left behind then schedule a consultation about PSTD switch off and we will make sure your business communications are running fir for the future.
This change is more than just trivial technical jargon. The one thing that businesses need to know about their phone system is that it depends on their IT infrastructure. Meaning getting the proper support for your IT and your Telecoms solutions are more intertwined than ever.
Now, in 2022, there are less than three years before PSTN is no longer an option for businesses. So as we say out with the old PSTN technology and in with the new, more secure, modern and scalable VoIP - it's time to ask one crucial question. How ready is your business for the VoIP switchover?
