End of ISDN. 3 things to be business ready.

ISDN service disconnection has begun. Now is the time for businesses to make the switch and avoid costly operational impacts.

“Businesses should start considering their options, don’t leave it to the last minute as this will place undue pressure on your business. The move to cloud telephony services brings lots of advantages to business in terms of choice of service, resiliency and cost of ownership,” says David Tynan, Solution Sales Specialist, XCentral.

“Take the time now to explore the options, work with a reputable service provider to save time and money as the migration process can be time-consuming, full of industry jargon, and unknown pitfalls.”

“Now could be a good time to consider your PABX replacement strategy in line with Cloud adoption. MS Teams calling provides a significant integrated UC capability that is cost-effective and simple.

David recommends the following actions to take to be business ready.

  • IT infrastructure review – consider whether the current hardware needs upgrading? Understand how staff access data; explore the benefits of cloud-based solutions
  • Hosting options – decide whether you want to be in the cloud or on-premises
  • Migration plan – work with a provider like XCentral to map out a migration plan that includes decommissioning your current system, identifying new hardware requirements, negotiating contracts and costs, setting timeframes, and managing the deployment
