In 2016 BT announced it’s plans to phase out the existing ISDN and PSTN networks by 2025. This news will affect the communications of millions of businesses throughout the UK which must migrate to IP networks (SIP) within the next nine years.

What this means for your business:

  • By 2020 you’ll no longer be able to purchase a system that uses PSTN / ISDN technology, so if you were thinking of upgrading your telephone system soon then an IP solution will be the future proof solution your business needs.
  • By 2025, BT plans to have migrated all businesses to the IP network. As investment in ISDN is decreasing dramatically this could lead to a drop in the quality standards you’ve received from your existing network, which is why we recommend you look at migrating sooner rather than later.

If you haven’t already started planning for the ISDN switch off then now is the ideal time to start the switch to SIP and begin taking advantage of its numerous business benefits.

What is SIP Trunking?

SIP Trunking is already the recognised alternative to PSTN and ISDN lines for delivering IP technology – allowing you to run voice and data over a secure internet connection rather than multiple fixed lines. By using virtual rather than physical phone lines, SIP allows for better flexibility, scalability and a large reduction in costs.

Cloudsource is a leading provider of cloud and hybrid solutions for small to medium enterprises with experience migrating hundreds of SME customers to SIP Trunking. We work closely with Ericsson-LG Enterprise, the world-renowned business telephony provider, to deliver award-winning solutions based on award-winning technology.

Key Benefits of Cloud:

  • Highly scalable allowing your business to easily grow; adding new lines is easy and these can be scaled up or down over time to suit your needs.
  • Free calls and no need for expensive ISDN / PSTN line rental.
  • Provides the flexibility for remote and mobile working practices, such as the ability to receive calls to your office phone and your mobile at the same time without incurring any additional costs, meaning you can provide your customers with one number no matter where you may be.
  • Simple and effective integration with your business email account, CRM system and more.
  • Advanced resilience and disaster recovery in the case of severe weather or network failure.
