We have come a long way from the old dial-up days when you had to be off the phone to connect to the internet. As technology has grown, telephone systems have become closely interlinked with the web thanks to VoIP (voice over internet protocol), the technology that converts your voice into a digital signal. With BT announcing that traditional ISDN lines will be switched off in 2025, it is important businesses make their change to a hosted phone system before then to avoid disruption of service.
A hosted phone system is cloud-based meaning you connect to it using an internet connection. Typically, there are no upfront costs as you are renting the handsets rather than purchasing your own dedicated system.
IP technology runs across the internet so a good connection is paramount for good voice quality.
If you are one of the millions of businesses across the globe still using an ISDN connection don’t panic, we’re here to help you make the migration across to a hosted phone solution. Talk to us today on how you can get started.
