The Future of Telecommunications Northern Ireland
The telecommunications network in Northern Ireland is changing. The technology currently used to provide traditional landline voice calls (known as PSTN – Public Switched Telephone Network) is no longer fit for the future. Therefore, over the next few years, all landline phones will be replaced with a digital network, known as IP (Internet Protocol) network, also known as VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol).
While the traditional telephony system uses the circuit-switching method, VoIP uses the ‘packet switching’ method. This technology has been brought to the forefront of communications by the freedom and flexibility of the internet. The traditional ‘“copper wire” telephone network is to be made completely obsolete by 2025.
Telecommunications Northern Ireland – Out with the Old, in with the New
Improvements in broadband services throughout Belfast has made VoIP solutions more accessible to our businesses. In fact, Northern Ireland has one of the largest full-fibre availability in the UK. This further bolsters the advantages that VoIP can bring to your business. So, whether you’re a business that is looking to expand or you want more flexibility for your workers to operate from a remote location, a VoIP phone system can improve how your employees communicate between themselves, your suppliers and most importantly, your customers. If you are currently in a rolling contract with a provider, make sure that you know all of your options before you roll into another year.
Benefits of VoIP
Businesses could save up to 70% compared to using a traditional phone system. VoIP is cost-efficient for not only domestic calls but also international calls.
Whether you want to downsize or grow your business, VoIP gives you the flexibility to do both.
Keep your employees connected via video and voice calls, conferencing and instant messaging from anywhere. VoIP will allow you to take and place calls on any device as long as you have a good internet connection.
