As we move closer to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) Switchover in 2025, security alarm installers are now facing the challenges that this will present to the alarm systems and equipment that are in place in their customer’s premises. As a leading Alarm Monitoring Centre (ARC) Farsight has recently written a series of articles to outline the ‘What is PSTN switchover’ and how this will impact alarm signalling, which includes exploring two of the leading signalling solutions from both CSL DualCom Pro and BTRedace.
The PSTN switchover to ‘All IP’ could impact the 800,000 digital communicators and any legacy based technology that is reliant on PSTN that could be as many as 1.2 million devices – potentially meaning that they won’t work on the new all IP platform. In our experience, however, many installers are already proactively facing these challenges and moving towards future proofing their clients’ systems.
Farsight regularly shares resources with our security systems installer partners and found this recent IFSEC Tech Talk session with the team from CSL DualCom Pro to be a valuable resource that we wanted to share with you. In this digital presentation, David McClelland from IFSEC Tech Talk speaks with John Coleman (Head of Sales UK & Ireland) and Ian Hardisty (Technical Sales Manager) who outline what the PSTN is and what it means to the future of alarm signalling in the UK.
Within this session, John Coleman also gives an overview the CSL DualCom range, one of the alarm signalling product ranges that Farsight provides to our customers, as well as how existing CSL equipment will work in the future.
The CSL DualCom PRO can offer installers easier, faster installation of the their professional signalling systems with greater resilience. It also provides access to the CSL Live device management portal as well as the CSL My Base App.
