ISDN, PSTN Services to be Decommissioned and How To Prepare for VoIP Telephony

19/02/2019

The Australian ISDN and PSTN network is coming to a close.

With the rollout of NBN set to replace the ageing copper wires with a new network, the shutdown of traditional telephone services like PSTNs and ISDNs has already begun in Australia and before 2022 these services will have ceased being supported by the Telecommunications Carriers like Telstra and Optus.

Businesses that are still using traditional analogue phone systems in their offices are the most affected by this decommissioning. SIP (Session Internet Protocol) is a direct alternative to the ISDNs, allowing you to make calls using your office Internet while still keeping your existing office numbers.

The opportunity to upgrade is now.

This is an opportunity for the businesses to embrace the change and move to SIP. Migrating to SIP technology should be a business priority as it provides scalability, flexibility and cost-effective benefits that older ISDN based phone systems never offered.

SIP enables employees to have calls made to their desk phone automatically delivered to their smartphones or PC, with no additional charges. The new generation of SIP-based PABXs integrate with your office applications and provide employees with the flexibility to work from home or any remote location. SIP provides the scalability to your business without the overheads of adding new hardware and complex provisioning process and lengthy time frames. Migrating to SIP can also halve your telecommunications spend.

Benefits of moving to SIP are clear. Get in touch with C2 Communications to find out how migrating to SIP can help your business realise these benefits.
