Are you ready for 2025? Probably not! But it’s a date we shouldn’t forget.
By 2025, BT has shut down its traditional telephone network in Britain, shifting all customers over to IP telephony services. BT’s closure of the public switched telephone network (PTSN) should result in internet-based voice calls via a fibre network.
Since the majority of the businesses depend on this, it’s smart to be prepared before the switchover. What happens after the switchover? Once it’s completed, all of BT’s phone lines will have changed from analogue signalling to IP voice. This means the country will have a full digital infrastructure which will bring loads of benefits including faster speed and ability to transmit voice, video and information as data which is a good thing! Digital advancement means that your organisation can do more!
The downside though is that this doesn’t happen automatically. Openreach handles data connectivity, but you need to make sure that the systems you're using across your sites have been upgraded to operate on the new digital infrastructure. If you don’t do this, you may find that some or most of your existing systems won’t work like they should.
It’s also important to keep in mind that the switchover is not going to happen all at once. It is believed that the upgrades will take place one area after another. Openreach has yet to confirm this bit. Rather wait for this to happen, it’s best to get ahead of the game as it may happen sooner that you expected.
While this might cause stress, there’s no need to panic! CPR Guardian is here to help the migration as seamless and stress-free as possible.
