As the 2025 switch-off of analogue telephone services rapidly approaches, businesses will need to evaluate their broadband and telephony and make any required switch to newer technology in readiness for the change.
What is the Analogue to Digital Transition?
BT is moving all customers from the old analogue public switched telephone network (PSTN) to a fully digital network from September 2023. They plan to move everyone over before Openreach stops the PSTN (and ISDN) service in 2025. By then, every phone line in the UK will be digital rather than the traditional PSTN.
What systems does this include?
This includes businesses and homes, but it is not just phone services that need to be considered, it is everything that currently uses the old phone network, all your non-voice services connected to PSTN or ISDN lines. Things like alarms, EPOS machines, door entry systems, CCTV, and even faxes.
