In the latest episode of the popular technology podcast, Techcess, Mark Riddell of m3 Networks encourages us to make the VoIP switch as he shares news of the upcoming demise of the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) in the United Kingdom.
VoIP switch topics covered:
Out with PSTN, in with VoIP
Are you a businesses that still rely on the PSTN network?
You should be aware that this system is soon to be phased out and replaced with a digital system, such as Voice over IP (VoIP).
Your making the switch to VoIP telephony is not just about upgrading your phone system, but it's also an opportunity for your business to save up to 60% on your telephony costs.
Mark explains that the PSTN network is outdated and, as a result, businesses will need to update not only their phone systems but also other technologies that are connected to the PSTN network.
Goodbye ISDN, too!
In the latest episode of “Techcess” (episode 75) Mark shares with us how the ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) is also coming to an end.
This means that businesses need to be aware of these changes and make the necessary updates before it's too late.
In September 2023, BT will stop selling traditional phone lines in all exchange areas, which means that businesses will need to switch to IP technology before 2025.
What other devices will be affected unless you VoIP switch?
Mark also explains that other devices in your office or home could be connected to a phone system, and what you might need to do to make sure you’re on top of that changeover.
Also, the differences between an on-premise phone system and VoIP, and why telecom companies make all of their money from telecom services.
