Installer Resources: ‘All IP’ Switchover Stop Sell Dates

Installer resources PSTN Switchover


As BT OpenReach ploughs ahead with its PSTN switchover to ‘All IP’, future proofing alarm signalling systems is becoming more and more urgent for businesses to ensure their security systems remain operational. This is keeping security systems installers extremely busy and we wanted to update you on the 217  ‘stop sell’ dates that BT OpenReach have outlined as ‘All IP’ rolls out. These are below, broken down by exchange locations across the country.

After these dates any new alarm signalling systems requiring connection to PSTN/ ISDN services from these exchanges will be rejected in the move to ‘All IP’ services. As a leading Alarm Receiving Centre ARC), we work with BT Redcare, CSL and Ajax who provide a comprehensive range of alarm signalling devices to help you stay on top of future proofing your alarm systems.  Now is a good time to consider what changes need to be made to your systems so that we can continue to monitor them and keep your security optimised.
