ISDN Disconnections Update

The shutdown of ISDN services has begun, and with that comes an even greater need to plan your upgrade 

Our February 2019 C2 blog post shed some light on the impending network shutdown of ISDN and PSTN networks, and in the months since more Australian businesses are being faced with the tangible reality of being disconnected. Disconnections began as early as September 2019, and are rapidly increasing; Telstra ISDN revenue declined in FY19 by 17.8% to $387 million (Telstra, August 2019) as Telstra continues their move away from the legacy product. With the services planned for complete decommissioning in September 2022, this leaves a significant number of Australian businesses facing decisions on where, and when to move. 

Plan your migration through a move to VoIP (voice over internet protocol)

What does this mean? With the nbn network expanding to 10 million “ready to connect premises” (nbn Co., October 2019), and a committal to completion in 2020, as well as continued improvements to fibre networks in growing metropolitan areas, a migration plan to cloud based VoIP is a plan all businesses need to consider.Porting out to a VoIP provider allows you to keep your disconnecting ISDN numbers, and gives you the flexibility to move them wherever you desire.
