techUK is running a briefing session aimed at helping the transport sector better understand what the digital phone switchover means for the industry.
The current analogue network (the PSTN – public switched telephone network) is fast approaching its end of life and communication providers are moving their customer base onto more future proof telephone services.
Phone lines will be upgraded to broadband lines and voice services using different protocols. This will impact a diverse range of services including traffic management, security and CCTV, and other special services which currently rely on PSTN.
At this session, we will hear from communication service providers and network operators on how best to prepare and understand potential impacts. The powering capabilities of the phone network will also see changes, with the phone line no longer offering a continued powering source - even during power outages.
Join us on February 22 from 11-12 to hear more and understand what this telephone upgrade programme will mean for you.
