Embracing the switch to IP
BLACKBURN, England -
The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), is an analogue phone network used in the UK by businesses and households as a connection to make phone calls, receive emails, and browse the web. It has served the UK for generations, but the technology is now becoming obsolete, and a new system is required to meet our communication demands. Andrew Collinson Operations Director for Electronic Security at Chubb shares his insights on how the switch will affect those businesses with security systems in place.
As a ‘last century’ technology, the PSTN network is increasingly unable to deal with the demands of modern communications and no longer sustain the amount of data being shared. As more people switch to mobile and internet communications, our use of these technologies broadens, and our world gets faster. Consumers expectations of performance are therefore much greater than the traditional technologies were once designed to deliver. The new IP system will present new digital ways of working and opportunities to change how we communicate.
