11th Jan 2017 In News By Jacon Egan

Organisations are changing the way they think about communications. Is your business still relying on traditional Integrated Service Digital Network technology for your communications?

Today’s business climate calls for reliability, agility and flexibility. In order to deliver on these core goals, the tools companies need to communicate to their customers and the wider world must be future ready and fit for purpose. That’s not always the case however, many companies still rely on ISDN technology for their business communications, most of which are now becoming obsolete in a business environment where terms of interaction are dictated by increasingly demanding customers.

Traditional systems are dying. It is common knowledge amongst telecommunications experts that ISDN is a dying technology. Indeed, BT intend to switch their ISDN network off entirely in 2025 and the general consensus is the technology will be as good as gone within five years, but this traditional system is still being used by many businesses.

What is ISDN? ISDN is a communications network that relies heavily on physical infrastructure, specifically copper wiring. It came to prominence because it provided the opportunity to transmit voice and data over the same lines. However, because of its reliance on physical infrastructure to manage calls and additional functionality via a PBX (or multiple), this takes up space within business premises and requires resource to administer and maintain. Similarly, it is hard to add and remove new lines to an ISDN network because it requires addition and removal. the big negative is when things break, there is no quick fix.
