A commercial real estate agency with several apartment complexes in the Boston area had already migrated to voice over IP (VoIP) for the company’s PBX and voice lines. However, over a dozen plain old telephone service (POTS) lines were still in use for pool phones, building entry phones, elevators, and boiler room alarms. With POTS line prices increasing and support quality declining, the agency desperately wanted to find a way to replace those old lines.

They turned to one of our trusted partners, a leading business phone system supplier, for eight “POTS replacement in a box” devices with 13 lines. As a result, the agency has maintained phone service in locations where implementing VoIP isn’t possible but no longer has to worry about rising prices and declining support levels.

If you’re also looking for an easy, cost-effective POTS replacement solution for systems that currently necessitate traditional phone service, you should consider working with the same supplier.

Our technology advisors reviewed the provider’s POTS line placement offering and its advantages for businesses looking to move away from traditional phone lines. Here’s some vital information about the supplier’s background and what they can do for your organization.
