Why are ISDN services ending?

ISDN services in Australia are at their end of life. Carriers will be disconnecting service of ISDN customers from September 2019 with no further support as of 2022.

As the NBN continues to rollout, the copper network supporting ISDN will also be phased out. With up to 92% of Australian premises expected to be connected to the NBN, it is critical to make the jump to SIP.

What you need to do

Customers currently using ISDN will need to migrate their service onto a Sessions Initiated Protocol (SIP) Trunk connection.

Doing this sooner rather than later will ensure you have no loss of service or business productivity. Avoid being caught in the bottleneck of last-minute mass migrations to SIP by migrating today.

What is SIP?

Sessions Initiated Protocol (SIP) is a more modern telephony solution that uses the internet to deliver voice and data through a single connection. ISDN on the other hand, used the traditional copper telephone network to deliver voice and data.

Important things to consider

With these changes to carrier services, there are several points to consider in selecting the right phone system for your business.

You may wish to retain autonomy for your business of which service providers you use, both now and in the future. Alternatively, you may be after a one-size-fits-all approach in service provider, solution and call rates.

Whether you have an entry level or sophisticated communications system, NEC has the right solution for you.

Why do I need to be ready for SIP and VoIP?

With the imminent cessation of ISDN, switching to SIP technology should be a business priority.

A SIP Trunk is the digital equivalent of a traditional phone line, it connects to a PBX, a device that provides the brains behind the phone system enabling multiple users to share lines. SIP offers a number of key advantages over ISDN including carrying voice and data across a single connection.

NEC has technology ready for this migration, including the SL2100 and UNIVERGE SV9100

Why do I need to be ready for NBN?

The NBN roll out has long been underway and will be replacing traditional phone lines. Meaning your existing hardware will most likely be incompatible. To ensure you business avoids down time, loss or productivity and income; upgrade now.

Some older NEC systems and the current SL2100 and SV9100 systems support phone services enabled by the NBN network. Regardless if you are going to use SIP trunks directly or your carrier is providing you with a conversion appliance; your NEC system is ready either way.

These NEC systems support both old and new technologies, providing you the choice to cater for these events now or later.
