Analog copper wire phone lines, also known as plain telephone service or POTS, are rapidly being phased out by legacy telecommunications providers. This “copper sunset” creates a significant challenge in maintaining security devices and business-critical systems that require a POTS line, ranging from fire alarm panels to elevator phones, fax machines, public safety phones , building access systems and more, which often can’t be migrated to Voice over Internet or VoIP service. Meanwhile, the monthly cost of commercial POTS lines is rising rapidly and reliability is declining.
Ooma AirDial (https://www.ooma.com/airdial) offers turnkey replacement for POTS lines by combining the AirDial base station with virtual analog phone service and a data connection through T-Mobile’s national network. AirDial deployments can be managed remotely through an online portal with automated alerts, reducing costly “trucks” and reducing incident response time.
Ooma and T-Mobile have established a direct connection for AirDial between T-Mobile’s network and Ooma’s cloud-based phone service, improving the reliability and quality of calls. This direct connection also means that calls do not cross the public Internet, a regulatory requirement for some security systems such as fire alarm panels.
“We’re excited to have a telecommunications leader like T-Mobile for Business raise awareness about the sunset of copper and share our Ooma AirDial solution with its broad customer base,” said Chris Burgy, vice president of corporate development at Ooma.With AirDial, any organization, regardless of size, now has access to POTS replacement that is simple to implement and in many cases will immediately reduce your monthly telecommunications costs.
