The age of digital voice is approaching

Watch our latest panel discussion exploring how the end of traditional telephony brings new opportunities for organisations

The long-anticipated end of the traditional Public Switched Telephony Network (PSTN) is fast becoming a reality. Organisations are busy migrating their voice services to voice over IP (VoIP) before the switch-off.


Our latest edition of the CIO Watercooler panel discussion brings together John Stenton, Head of IT at Thrive Homes and Adam Miller, Associate Engineering Director at MOO Print Limited, alongside Virgin Media O2's Senior Regulatory Specialist David Christie, to explore the new age of digital voice.


They discussed how the pandemic highlighted PSTN's limitations, the benefits VoIP and the tech needed to make the change.


You'll learn:

  • How to avoid the costly management challenges of end-of-life PSTN technology.
  • How IP powers up hybrid working using collaborative tools such as MS Teams in significant new ways.
  • How taking the IP route brings cost-effective voice flexibility and guaranteed quality of service – plus a wealth of actionable data.
  • What shift in mindset must happen to encourage adoption of dependable, proven tech.

"It is really important that businesses understand what they have today and what they need to do to make sure they have the best capabilities for tomorrow"

Saying goodbye to analogue phones

Digital VoIP technology supports both broadband and fixed telephone services, carrying voice calls over a broadband connection across the UK. But it still allows you to pick up the receiver and make a call.


To prepare for the change and make the most of VOIP, you need to know that you have the right tools and processes. To help you navigate those decisions, we’ve published a list of seven things to consider when upgrading your analogue telephony.


"You can do so much more with VoIP than with PTSN."
