Reliable connectivity for analog POTS devices.

T-Mobile is a leading provider of POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) replacement solutions for all types of organizations that manage landline based analog devices, from small business to enterprise corporations to government organizations.

What is POTS and what it means to your business?

POTS is telephone service that employs analog signal transmission over copper loops, that exists in many buildings. A standard technology over most of the 20th century, POTS is being replaced by newer technologies such as integrated services digital networks (ISDN), voice over IP (VoIP), and cellular networks from carriers such as T-Mobile.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) tightly regulated POTS through the 1990’s. Now, in the 2019 FCC 19-72 order effective August 2022, they have lifted its oversight and no longer see any reason to require Carriers to continue POTS service.

How the end of POTS regulations affects you?

Due to the FCC mandate, for buildings that already have POTS installed, retrofitting is a key solution as traditional telephone carriers have begun plans to sunset their POTS network, leading to three interconnected issues:

  1. Lower investment into POTS which leads to network degradation.
  2. Carriers maintaining POTS lines will pass-through costs, creating skyrocketing business line bills and accelerating customer exodus.
  3. Eventual end-of-life (EOL) resulting in loss of service due to poor network ROI.
For new buildings, Wireless POTS is a great solution because vital systems can seamlessly interconnect and harness T-Mobile’s award-winning network nationwide. And with T-Mobile’s rapid service deployment offerings, your life-safety compliant solutions will work more efficiently and at a significantly lower cost than traditional POTS.
