How Euroroute Network Solutions supports ISPs and their customers with Digital Voice.
The Great Britain Switch off
BT has begun ‘the Great Britain Switch off’ to end PSTN telephone service throughout the UK, replacing this with more advanced and efficient Digital Voice services. This will deliver telephone services over the Internet and require new hardware to connect to the telephone services. With a planned switch-off of the legacy telephone infrastructure by 2025, this shift presents both challenges and opportunities for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and their customers.
Digital Voice ready
Euroroute Network Solutions is a leading provider of Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) to ISPs and offers the AVM FRITZ!Box range of routers and digital phones to help facilitate a smooth and timely transition to Digital Voice. Every FRITZ!Box is already completely prepared for connection to the digital voice services by simply connecting the existing home phone or pairing FRITZ!Fon cordless dect handsets. In this blog, we’ll explain what Digital Voice is, the challenges ISPs face, and how Euroroute Network Solutions can help them navigate the transition.
Understanding Digital Voice
Digital Voice is a technology that enables voice communication over digital networks, such as the internet or private IP networks, instead of traditional analogue telephone lines. This technology offers numerous benefits, including improved call quality, reduced latency, and increased reliability. The Digital Voice transition, led by BT, marks a significant shift in the telecommunications industry, as it moves from legacy analogue systems to modern, digital infrastructure.
Challenges for ISPs
ISPs face several challenges during the Digital Voice transition. These challenges include updating infrastructure, training staff on new technology, managing the deployment of new devices, and ensuring a seamless experience for customers. ISPs must also ensure that their offerings are future-proof, remaining competitive as the industry evolves.
Impact on Customers
The Digital Voice transition will have a impact on customers with certain legacy routers, as they must replace their existing analogue phones with digital phones compatible with the new infrastructure. For ISPs to ensure a smooth transition, minimising disruption to any customer downtime will be essential. One of the unique features of the FRITZ!Box is that your end users can continue using their current analogue phone without needing additional equipment. It includes an integrated Analogue phone port that converts analogue signals to digital, allowing seamless transition. If desired, users can enhance their experience by adding FRITZ!Fon DECT cordless phones for added convenience. However, no other hardware needs to be installed in the home and after the BT switch off, most customers will simply need to unplug their phone from the wall and plug it into the FRITZ!Box FON1 port.
Euroroute’s AVM FRITZ!Box Routers
Euroroute Network Solutions offers a range of AVM FRITZ!Box routers, specifically designed to support the Digital Voice transition. These routers provide seamless integration with digital telephony standards, ensuring that ISPs can offer their customers a smooth transition to the new technology. The FRITZ!Box adds many convenient features such as a cordless base station to connect other rooms to the service, an answering machine for voice mail, call diversions, call blocking of nuisance or unwanted calls, and many other useful features. The built-in DECT base stations allow any brand of wireless digital phones to connect directly to the router, further simplifying the setup process.
AVM FRITZ! Digital Phones
To complement their range of routers, Euroroute Network Solutions also offers AVM FRITZ! digital phones. These phones are designed to work seamlessly with the AVM FRITZ!Box routers, providing an enhanced calling experience with improved call quality and reduced latency. Additionally, these phones support advanced features, such as call blocking, call forwarding, and voicemail, giving customers access to a comprehensive digital telephony solution.
Remote Device Management and Support
Euroroute Network Solutions understands the importance of efficient device management and support for ISPs. Euroroute Network Solutions partners with market-leading platform AVsystem that provide Cloud ACS based on TR-069 protocol that local telcos and internet service providers can use for remote provisioning and management of their devices. This allows ISPs to simplify the deployment process and reduces the need for on-site technician visits. This not only saves time and resources but also ensures a consistent and high-quality experience for customers. Additionally, Euroroute offers support and guidance to ISPs during the transition, helping them navigate the challenges and minimise disruption for their customers.
