Have you made preparations for the ISDN changeover?

ISDN Changeover

The telecommunications world is changing and as a telecoms provider, we endeavour to keep our clients, both new and old, up to date with what is happening in the sector. We pride ourselves on being confident in our delivery and our knowledge.  If you need advice about the ISDN changeover, we are here to help.

Recently, current and prospective clients have been asking us about the ISDN switch off.

Most, if not all, have concerns.  In some cases, having been harassed by suppliers into changing to a VoIP product. The various scare tactics used in these instances do not send the right message for us as a sector. We feel this has to stop. We aim to ensure the right information is passed to clients clearly and concisely, thus enabling them to make an educated decision.

What is ISDN?

ISDN (Integrated Service Digital Network) is a circuit-switched telephone network system.  It allows both voice and data services to be delivered over digital lines simultaneously.

What does the changeover mean?

In 2015, BT released a statement saying it would stop taking new ISDN orders by 2020.  Then switching-off and deactivating its ISDN network completely by 2025.  We have a free video guide: BT are phasing out ISDN and PSTN – why this affects your business.

How will it affect your business?

It means you have until 2025 to review your options and make the change (before the network is switched off completely). To do this, we suggest you contact your service provider. If you talk to MF Telecom Services, we will make sure you have all the information you need to make the right decision for your company.

Remember, you have until 2025 to make the changeover. That is just over five years away, which may seem like a long time, but it is important to realise that in business, time can creep up on you. Please make sure your provider keeps you up to date with the right product information, so you can make the decision before it’s too late.

If you require any more help, please contact us, or call 01892 577 577.
