  • Seen the worrying headlines about BT switching off their ISDN network?

 

No isdn

 

So what exactly is happening?

BT have announced some important network changes that will effect businesses across the UK. BT will be moving to decommissioning their ISDN network for voice calling in 2025. They will stop taking new orders from businesses in 2020.

The infrastructure behind ISDN is essentially the same infrastructure that underpinned the first telephony networks in the 1800s!

With the big switch off now announced it makes sense to make the jump sooner rather than later to ensure a smooth transition.

 

The costs of maintaining the old infrastructure when enhanced technology is taking over, bringing so many more options that are much more cost effective for BT’s clients, it makes no sense to keep the old infrastructure network up and running.

As a Business Owner, you need to have preparation in place for the switch, so make sure you do your research on the options available to you.

BT is moving their network to be based on IP. You may have heard the more common acronyms involving IP; VoIP and SIP. In essence, instead of having an old connection that carries both voice and data, you’ll have one, fast data connection, which also carries your voice calling.

As a Business Owner, you need to have preparation in place for the switch, so make sure you do your research on the options available to you.
