Annoucements in the world of telecoms

What we have done on this page is to obtain extracts from around the market with Telecoms to show you what is happening in this market place.

 

BT Openreach have announced they will be switching off their existing PSTN and ISDN network by 2025 and switching to a single IP network. Find out about the alternatives and how to be prepared.

From a slightly different angle,  PSTN migration will be necessary and gaining in urgency within the next five years because vendors are planning to discontinue PSTN-related product lines and support. Also, the aging workforce with knowledge of PSTN infrastructure will add to the urgency. Several service providers have plans for substantially completing PSTN migration by 2025

80% of TDM switches have been in place for over 20 years, and virtually all of them are more than 10 years old. What has exacerbated the situation is the vendor consolidation over the past decade, leading to rationalization of product portfolios and discontinued lines of equipment.

With the loss of PSTN-skilled and experienced workers retiring, It is not just the infrastructure that is aging, but also technicians and engineers with the requisite knowledge of maintenance of such infrastructure. Required skillsets and experience are diminishing as these workers retire or leave the workforce, making maintenance more difficult and costly.

Maturity and trust are additional factors. ISDN TDM services have been used for over 30 years now, whereas SIP trunking has gained major market traction as recently as 2000.
