Discover the Solutions Your Business Needs for the 2025 PSTN Switch Off
Now that you’re aware of the forthcoming PSTN Switch Off and the telecoms products and services that will be retiring, it's time to future-proof your business.
In this article, we highlight the ‘All IP’ solutions that will be replacing the old retiring products to help you map your journey through to brand new telecoms and connectivity technologies:
Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SoGEA) is a standalone hybrid fibre broadband line, without analogue telephone service. It utilises the same technology as Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) but is a future-proof solution because it only passes data over the line. SoGEA offers superfast download speeds of up to 80mb/s
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) utilises fibre optic cable connections that run directly from the exchange to your property. The use of fibre optic cables from end to end makes this product full future-proof. Full fibre connections can reach speeds as high as 1gb/s
Ethernet, dedicated line, or leased line is a private internet connection delivered directly to the premise for the exclusive use of your business alone. They're ideal for businesses with high data needs, frequent video conferencing, or multiple users accessing the internet simultaneously. Leased lines can reach speeds of up to 10gb/s
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunks are a direct replacement for legacy phone line products, so businesses can keep their current phone system and remain future-proofed against the upcoming Switch Off. However, your current phone system must be SIP enabled to be able to use this product
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that allows you to make and receive voice calls over the internet instead of traditional phone lines. As VoIP systems operate in the cloud, this negates the need for physical phone lines that are expensive and timely to install, and that fix you and your employees to a single location - giving you added disaster recovery options and the ability to take calls from the office, from home and even on-the-go
Internet of Things (IoT) SIMs are specialised SIM cards designed for devices in the IoT ecosystem. It allows these devices to connect to cellular networks and transmit data over a wireless internet connection. IoT SIMs typically offer features like low power consumption, extended coverage, and remote management capabilities for IoT deployments. These will be the best solution for products within an office that previously used traditional telephone lines such as fire alarms and card payment machines
