POTS Line Replacement

Simply Communicate

The dial tone as we have known it for generations has come to an end. Data-driven and wireless delivery has become the de facto communications solutions, supplanting traditional wired systems.


As a result, legacy systems have become obsolete, leaving businesses like yours with a costly upgrade to maintain voice communications.

It is estimated that

40M

analog fire and burglar alarm system are currently in use.

Copper Phone Lines
Become a Thing of the Past

The PSTN (public switched telephone network) – the copper line-based communications network that has delivered phone service to US residents and businesses for decades – is being abandoned.

FCC Order 10-72A1 mandates that all POTS Lines in the USA be replaced with an alternative service by August 2, 2022. The nation’s copper Line infrastructure is actively being replaced by a more efficient IP-based network.

Currently, there are over 4o million copper POTS phone lines in the US. These lines support critical business needs like fire/burglar alarm, analog modem data functions, fax and elevator – functions that don’t tend to work well with VoIP.

Per the FCC mandate, carriers no longer have to offer or support POTS services. This has resulted in extreme price increases – as high as 60-100% and notices to customers that their POTS line services will soon be unavailable. This is the carrier’s way of moving customers off of the outdated technology.

POTS line customers are at a crossroads – do they pay the higher fees or do they pay for a total overhaul of their communications solution?

What are you doing to get ready for this change?
