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.

Posted on Mar 14 2018 by Paul North | Comments Off on Hosted Voice – Don’t be just another ‘me-too’ Broadsoft provider
Categories : Reselling, VoIP

Are you interested in reselling Hosted Voice/VoIP but unsure which type of service to provide to your customers? Or are you already reselling VoIP but struggling to differentiate yourself in the crowded Broadsoft based SME market?

As demand for hosted voice increases and more and more providers are offering the service its becoming increasingly harder for resellers to stand out from the crowd and take real advantage of this growing market – after all you might as well just opt for a Broadsoft based solution and compete on price right?

Control – The real network differentiator

Lee Hill, Pre-Sales Technical Manager

What kind of network does your provider have and how is it different to everyone else? Do they own the physical infrastructure or do they operate an essentially ‘virtual’ network based on rental and access agreements? Do you know? Do you care? Have you ever asked the question? Does it even matter as long as it’s reliable?

Does it matter?
In reality, as long as the provider’s network is fit for purpose and providing you with a reliable and high quality service, you may not have even considered the infrastructure that’s actually used, or care for that matter. But, it is an important factor in your choice of provider as the type of network they operate will impact on how much control they actually have over that network, which could of course considerably affect the level of service delivered. Consider, what happens when there is a major outage? Or how the network will expand for the future? Is that their decision or someone else’s?

Posted on Jan 31 2018 by Paul Heritage-Redpath | Comments Off on 5 top digital transformation developments to look out for in 2018

2018 promises to be a year of digital transformation revolution – with high speed and reliable connectivity right at its heart!

With all this in mind, we’ve identified five main factors that we think will drive this development throughout the year ahead!

  1. The right connectivity

As markets become increasingly competitive it’s never been more important to get the right connectivity to stay ahead of the game.

A business’ connectivity must meet their immediate needs as well as offering the flexibility to accommodate future change. It’s about balancing the need for connection speed and guarantee of service with budget available and timescales needed to get up and running.

That’s where the combined strength of Entanet and CityFibre can provide the level of connectivity choice and quality of service that is helping organisations across the country to get ahead.

Customer retention is a key part of any business, it is important to take care of existing customers as well as new business. How much time do you have to focus on retaining customers? At Entanet customer retention is one of our most important activities.

It can be a difficult balancing act. On one hand, you don’t want to lose contracts that are coming to an end and you’re keen to proactively remind your customers of renewal opportunities. On the other hand, you’re wary of reminding them in case they start to look elsewhere in the market. Right?

UPDATE: Is a compensation compromise possible?

Posted on Nov 27 2017 by Neil Watson | Comments Off on UPDATE: Is a compensation compromise possible?

Ofcom have now announced the final details of their automatic broadband compensation scheme. Not much has changed since the initial proposals, with some back and forth between industry and Ofcom over the final agreed compensation amounts. But, the biggest surprise is the fact that this will now be a voluntary agreement between Ofcom and several of the UK’s consumer focused providers, namely BT, Virgin Media, Sky Broadband, TalkTalk and Zen Internet with EE and Plusnet also indicating an intention to join the scheme.
