BT ISDN & PSTN Switch Off

In 2015, BT announced that they intend to switch off ISDN and PSTN in 2025. This is to facilitate a move to their entirely IP based telecoms network.

In particular if your business is still using ISDN2 or ISDN30 to make and receive voice calls via your office telephone system you will need to make changes.

How can Teleproject UK Help?

To clarify BT are likely to stop supplying new ISDN service by 2023 a couple of years prior to the full migration to the IP network. This means that if your business grows and you need additional ISDN channels they will not be available.

We can help by providing a first class service for the replacement products. These are SIP Trunks, also know as SIP Channels and fully hosted telephony.

If you have recently invested in a new on premise telephone system then it is possible that your current system is in fact SIP compatible. This means that your ISDN channels can simple be replaced with the more cost effective and feature rich SIP Channels.

If your current phone system can work with both ISDN and SIP then we recommend getting a test SIP Channel now. We would be delighted to help you with this.

The alternative is to switch to a fully hosted telephone system. In many ways this is far simpler, but does involve getting new handsets and possibly a router and or switch. Certainly if you are moving offices anytime soon or your current phone system is end of life then a fully hosted telephone system is the logically choice.
