Emerging technologies such as SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) are poised to revolutionize digital services, surpassing the outdated PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) networks. By embracing these advancements, customers can expect various advantages, including enhanced capacity, faster speeds, and a versatile range of features.

By the end of 2025, PSTN will be switched off across the United Kingdom, ushering in a new era of telecoms. Digital services will take its place, namely internet protocol (IP) or voice over internet protocol (VoIP) phone systems through which users can make calls via broadband or mobile data.

Despite the promising prospects, a smooth transition requires concerted efforts and preparedness. Recent research by Cavell reveals that over 20% of businesses are at risk of lagging in this transformation. Failing to adapt in time could leave these organizations facing significant challenges. If left unprepared, they may be compelled to undergo an emergency migration, grappling with the uncertainties and repercussions of such unplanned shifts. Consequently, the importance of proactive measures to stay on the cutting edge of technology cannot be overstated.
