Categories : GPON, Polls, Reselling, Voice, VoIP

As we discussed in our recent article ‘Time is ticking for ISDN – Are you ready?’ all ISDN (and PSTN) services will be completely withdrawn by 2025, generating a great opportunity for resellers to encourage their customers to seek alternative solutions in advance of this deadline. To help our partners get ahead of the competition we have launched a new ISDN replacement solution, which provides customers with a 500Mbps GPON connection and a choice of either 30 free SIP channels (if your customer wants to retain any existing PBX equipment) or 20 free hosted voice seats.

You can find out more here: ISDN Replacement

That’s why we’ve added a new poll – we’d like to know about your current activities around ISDN replacement opportunities. Are you already proactively discussing this with your customers? Are you already receiving enquiries? Or do you think it’s too soon? Let us know your thoughts and experiences by voting in our poll.

Time is ticking for ISDN – Are you ready?

Posted on Apr 26 2018 by Paul Heritage-Redpath | Comments Off on Time is ticking for ISDN – Are you ready?

Openreach recently began its consultation with ISPs on the planned withdrawal of all PSTN and ISDN services by 2025 as they attempt to move all telephone systems to newer, more flexible VoIP solutions. However, that doesn’t mean that Openreach is withdrawing all copper phone lines, they’re still very much needed for the provision of copper based and FTTC broadband services (amongst other things) but it does mean that business customers currently using ISDN and PSTN phone systems will need to upgrade to an alternative, and that’s where you come in!

Whilst 2025 may sound like a long way off, with an estimated 2.1 million ISDN30 channels and 0.87 million ISDN2 Business channels currently in use in the UK now really is the perfect time to get ahead of your competitors and seize this opportunity. Being proactive really could pay off, helping your customers to be fully prepared well in advance of the withdrawal date.

There are so many different connectivity services available on the market and sometimes it’s difficult and time consuming to wade through countless eBooks and product literature to find the key service features and information that you need to communicate to your customer, especially if you’re in a hurry. So we thought a quick visual reference in the form of a useful infographic might be more helpful.
