B.T. Turning off ISDN

This is no delayed April Fool, In a recent announcement BT said they were going to turn off ISDN services by 2025 (That is less than 10 years and time flies)

What does that mean for customers with ISDN? It means that sometime in the next 10 years they have to move to SIP and for many this could mean a whole new phone system as well.

Some phone systems can be upgraded to support SIP and therefore you would only need to find a SIP Trunk provider, other older or cheaper systems cannot be upgraded to SIP and this could mean you need to buy a whole new phone system or use a cloud based phone system.

Fortunately we provide both services and can assist you with the transition, we can even port your existing BT numbers so you can retain historical/valuable phone numbers.

SIP Trunking also known as VoIP Termination works in much the same way as ISDN in that it connects your on-premise phone system to the Cloud so you can make and receive calls. It is nearly always a lot cheaper than ISDN for line rental and call costs.

A Hosted Phone System is cloud based, on site you only need handsets, the brains part is in the cloud. Because the handests are connected to the cloud via the internet you can even have handsets for remote workers that are connected to your main system, this has many benefits, free internal calls, no messing about with expenses for calls/lines, and using Telestat in your office you can see what they are doing along side your office based staff.
If you require any assistance or further information please give us a call at Comms2Comms.
