Everything you Need to Know About the ISDN Switch Off
It’s officially 2023, and we’re now only two years away from the ISDN switch off – as it draws closer, we’re taking a look at everything you need to know before the big day!
WHAT ACTUALLY IS THE ISDN SWITCH OFF?
ISDN (or Integrated Services Digital Network) is a set of communication standards for voice, video, data and other network transmissions. But communication as we know itis changing. In 2025, ISDN will be switched off for good, to be replaced by full digital communications.
So, the world of communications is moving with the times – but what does that mean for your business?
WHAT DOES THE SWITCH OFF MEAN FOR YOU?
As we edge closer to the ISDN switch off in just two years’ time, all businesses will need to migrate over to digital communications channels. It might seem confusing, but it’s actually very beneficial for businesses of all sizes!
Moving to a hosted voice phone system will improve communications and minimise disruptions, making it easier for you to run things smoothly. VoIP is hosted over the internet, meaning you can access a wide variety of benefits that didn’t exist under ISDN!
HOW CAN VOIP HELP YOUR BUSINESS?
VoIP is perfect for the modern workforce – whether your team are in the office, working from home or on site, they’ll be able to communicate and collaborate remotely. It also means that calls can be taken from any device, and call history can be retained to help streamline your internal communications.
Pair this with lower cost calls and easier scalability, and you’ve got a recipe for massively improved communications for your business, both internally and externally.
