The 2025 PSTN and ISDN Transition

Posted on 06th October 2023 at 09:50

Preparing Businesses for the Future of Communications

The year 2025 marks a significant turning point in the world of business communications with the impending Big Switch Off of the PSTN and ISDN networks. Openreach, a division of BT, is diligently modernising the outdated Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) by transitioning it into a high-speed, full-fibre digital network. This transformation necessitates a swift adaptation by businesses to embrace technologies like VoIP phone systems and virtual landlines, positioning their communication infrastructure for the future.

By the conclusion of December 2025, traditional phone calls routed through PSTN or ISDN will be replaced by Internet Protocol (IP) as part of this monumental transition, aptly named the ‘Big Switch Off.’ This change carries significant implications for any enterprise reliant on broadband, a category that encompasses virtually all businesses in today’s interconnected world.

To successfully navigate this shift, all existing phone systems and older internet connections, including those used by essential hardware like card machines and CCTV, must make the transition to IP mode. Delaying this conversion will only compound the complexity and cost of the process, particularly if insufficient time is allocated to researching the right service provider.

In essence, while the PSTN and ISDN Big Switch Off is slated for 2025, the groundwork for this transition commences immediately. Cellular Solutions possesses a deep understanding of the implications, risks, and opportunities associated with this change, and we are well-prepared to guide your business through this crucial transition.
