IT news – BT to stop taking orders for ISDN lines in 2020

This is the end for traditional ISDN lines… BT have confirmed they will stop taking orders for ISDN lines by 2020 – the time to switch to hosted voice is now!

…but why are BT doing this? The answer is that online-based phone systems, or in other words voice over IP (VoIP) are far more efficient and flexible than the old-style fixed lines that are commonplace in many offices.

Switching to VoIP is easy and can deliver the following benefits:

VoIP telephone systems are hosted in the cloud rather than in your office, and are far more flexible and efficient than ISDN by providing:

  • For a start your IT department will thank you – VoIP systems will remove time-draining and unnecessary maintenance from their workload, freeing them up to focus on projects that can make a difference to your business.
  • Calls that are made over IP (the internet), and typically these are free and almost always less costly than over a traditional landline.
  • Complete control of your company’s communications network via a simple interface – create new users, assign numbers, manage devices and more.
  • Users with the ability to keep the same number, regardless of physical location.
  • No costly maintenance often associated with traditional phone networks.
  • Employees with access to a wide and growing range of smart call features – such as team conference calling, screensharing, instant messaging and more.

VoIP is one part of Dynamic Edge’s suite of cloud solutions – which also includes the likes of Microsoft Office 365, Azure, Google and Amazon S3.  Smart businesses are already realising the benefits of migrating their wider IT systems into the cloud.
