The UK’s phone & broadband network is changing. It’s time to update your services!
Openreach have now updated your local telephone exchange, moving across to a full-fibre network to enable fast, reliable and cost-effective connectivity. All traditional PSTN lines, such as analogue or digital phone lines, ISDN phone systems, and older internet connections, such as ADSL and FTTC broadband, have become obsolete. So, it’s time to upgrade your telecoms and connectivity to ensure your business stays in touch and ready for all-digital future!
What does PSTN mean?
In a nutshell, the old Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is on its way out. Made from copper, it has become fragile, served its purpose and is making way for a much more resilient replacement…fibre. Openreach is busy preparing exchanges across the UK and the migration to new, full fibre connections is now well underway.
What will replace PSTN?
Going forward, all phone calls will be made over the internet using IP based solutions such as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) and SIP Trunking (Session Initiation Protocol) technology. So, it’s time to make sure your business is prepared. But fear not, it’s an exciting time and the benefits of digital, cloud-based communications solutions are huge!
Why choose VoIP for business?
Using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, cloud-based phone systems are cost-effective, easy to set up and maintain, require less outlay on hardware and you can manage calls from wherever you are based. Reliable, flexible and will grow as your business grows!
Stay connected, anytime, anywhere
A business phone system keeps you connected. Whether your team are office-based, working from home or out and about, you can call, connect and collaborate. No matter where your business takes you, access to all the tools and features of your phone system are at your fingertips.
Flexible and cost effective
Moving to VoIP means your phone system will run over the internet, which opens the door to making free or very low cost calls. It also gives every business the ability to be much more flexible because you can take and manage calls; anytime, anywhere and from any device – meaning you’ll never miss an important call again!
All the features
Switch to a business phone system and tap into a world of communication tools. The easy-to-control call features are endless; from call management abilities such as call handling, voicemail-to-email, collaborative call distribution and auto attendant through to live call boards, real-time analytics and call recording. You can configure the system to match the exact requirements of your business.
