BT calls time on ISDN & Analogue

blue-back-old-telephone

By 2025 the old analogue telephone line will become obsolete but now is not too early to start thinking about what you need to do to make sure your business is not adversely affected.

PSTN – this is old copper infrastructure used to supply traditional telephony to a home or business and in recent times it has facilitated your broadband connection.

ISDN – is currently a line which allows you to make phone calls from a business phone where it would be connected to a telephone system.

The move away from this technology has come about because of greater investment into a fibre data infrastructure in the UK. You are now able to implement your voice communication entirely over a data connection by using a VoIP solution like Hosted telephony or SIP lines. With time running out it is vital that business owners and managers start planning for the change that is coming.

If you want to know more, please get in touch with your Account Manager to schedule a call or meeting.


SoGEA

New technology being rolled out by Openreach.

SoGEA stands for Single Order Generic Ethernet Access. In short, you will no longer need a separate telephone landline to get broadband. So, instead of the traditional copper phone line (PSTN)  Openreach will supply households and businesses with their internet connection in the form of SoGEA. Telephony services will also be available over this connection. Although this is in the early stages of launch, Openreach is actively working towards nationwide access.
