The end of ISDN…


A significant milestone is fast approaching as BT Openreach have confirmed they will stop taking new orders for traditional ISDN phone lines by 2020. This means the clock is now ticking for companies to make the switch away from this outdated voice technology.


The benefits of hosted voice (VoIP)

Traditional phone lines relied on ISDN technology to connect each individual phone to an associated phone line in the wall.  This approach meant that phones were restricted to a physical, wired connection and the phone number was assigned specifically to that line. Of course, this also meant that the job of moving a phone or changing a phone number was typically a physical job carried out by your IT Department.  With hosted voice, these problems are no more…  

VoIP telephone systems are hosted in the cloud rather than in your office, and are far more flexible and efficient than ISDN by providing:   

  • Calls that are made over IP (the internet), and typically these are free and almost always less costly than over a traditional landline.
  • Complete control of your company’s communications network via a simple interface – create new users, assign numbers, manage devices and more.
  • Users with the ability to keep the same number, regardless of physical location.
  • No costly maintenance often associated with traditional phone networks.
  • Employees with access to a wide and growing range of smart call features – such as team conference calling, screensharing, instant messaging and more.
