Get ready for the PSTN Switch-off

Posted by Cherie Howlett on 02-Sep-2022 11:32:06

Who will be affected?

All residential customers and businesses in the UK will need to find a replacement for their PSTN lines. Many will need to replace or upgrade their existing internet connectivity and consider VoIP applications.

There are millions of PSTN lines that won’t be able to use a SoGEA or FTTP type replacement, due to costs, incompatibility, or logistical challenges. Mobile data will be a requirement for many customers replacing PSTN.

There are a significant number of phone boxes in hospitals, supermarkets, and hotels. These allow you to book a taxi or receive information for free. All these call points need to be upgraded, as they will no longer work after the PSTN Switch-off.


How are Jola partners getting prepared?

Jola’s PSTN replacement packages are the perfect solution for MSPs, ISPs and resellers looking for a slick wholesale solution, managed end-to-end via a real-time fully API integrated portal. Millions of telephone lines will take time to migrate and we are already seeing massive projects kicking off as companies wake up to the challenges and choices ahead. This is a great opportunity for Jola partners to become first-mover experts in what is going to be the hottest sector in telecommunications over the next few years.

Partners are helping end-users to understand when their phone lines will be switched off and pro-actively suggesting alternative solutions such as a range of fixed-line or mobile broadband connectivity options with a VoIP solution designed to meet their needs.

Where it is not practical to replace PSTN lines with fixed-line connectivity, Jola has helped partners to productise mobile data solutions. We offer Robustel routers with an Analogue Telephone Adaptor (ATA) SIP Overlay service and calls over IP with a MultiNet SIM and pooled data across multiple sites.

All our solutions are easy to provision, support and bill. Our award-winning portals give partners complete control over their solutions from ordering through to provisioning and management.
