Now more than ever, your business communications are a critical enabler to success. But things are changing in the world of telecoms and your existing telephony solution might become obsolete soon. BT Openreach has announced it intends to switch off traditional landlines in 2025. This is commonly referred to as the Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) and Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) switch off. To keep your phone and numbers working, over 3 million B2B PSTN and ISDN fixed lines will need to move to a new network. What’s the alternative?
The PSTN switch off and the pandemic-driven rise in online/ digital route to market has created opportunities for businesses to deliver a future-proof VoIP solution, improve their customer experience, save time, and take control of their business phone system, without compromising on ease of use, affordability, and efficiency.
Voice over the Internet (VoIP) services uses your internet connection to transmit voice calls. This is a much better alternative to traditional landlines, and it will be the industry standard for years to come.
VoIP solutions offer a range of advantages over traditional landlines. A VoIP solution is:
- Scalable – It grows with your business and adjusts to your needs.
- Flexible – It doesn’t tie you to a physical location.
- Cost-effective – There are no initial and ongoing maintenance costs.
- Futureproof – It won’t become obsolete for a long time.
There are different types of VoIP solutions and making the right choice for your business is critical. It’s important to choose a solution that can help you meet your business needs and includes all those features that you’d expect from a traditional phone system.
