POTS lines still serve millions of businesses, supporting traditional phones, faxes, alarms and more. Although new technologies offer greater flexibility and efficiency, POTS continues to play an important role. But for many, POTS prices are rising. And in some regions, getting service on traditional copper is increasingly hard.
As one of the largest providers of both POTS lines and POTS alternatives for businesses in the US, Granite offers the most comprehensive set of options—whether you want to continue using POTS for now or are looking to replace your copper lines.
Some are falsely claiming POTS lines must be replaced in August. That’s not true. Get the facts before you rush into a decision.
Neither federal nor state regulators have authorized discontinuation of basic analog phone service. It’s technical, but you can read the FCC Order.
Technology has evolved, so unlike POTS, this transition is not a one-fits-all decision. Granite offers a range of innovative solutions for those looking to move current TDM applications to IP-centric or 4G/5G infrastructure. See which option works best for you.
Choosing the best POTS alternative depends on matching the technology to the application and business priorities. The option that’s perfect for integrated voice and video isn’t the same as the solution for Fire or Life Safety lines, and vice versa.
When it comes to POTS replacements, the decision goes well beyond just cost savings. From HIPAA compliance in healthcare to ease of moves and maintenance across hundreds or thousands of sites for large retailers, finding the POTS solution that fits the situation is key to long-term cost efficiency and business performance.
