Voice over IP (VoIP) has been powering business communications for decades. With BT shutting off its analogue PSTN and ISDN network in 2025, now is a great time to explore your options. Your Co-op Business Solutions can smoothly transition your business to VoIP or extend an existing system with a range of flexible options – from a single dedicated line for home workers to a comprehensive enterprise-grade Hosted PBX service.
Easy to switch and easy to use, cost-effective solutions are now available for your organisation.
PSTN is analogue and stands for Public Switched Telephone Network and ISDN stands for Integrated Services Digital Network. Together, these two networks have transferred voice and data over the existing phone lines. However, there is a looming IP switch which will stop the use of these two networks, and we don’t want to let this catch your business by surprise. Acting now makes it easier down the line.
The old copper wire landline network will end in December 2025, and full fibre to the premises and VoIP calls through the internet will become the standard practice for businesses to maintain efficient communications and collaboration.
Your Co-op Business Solutions can guide you through the right setup for your small or medium-sized enterprise business.
