Switch from POTS and ISDN to IP Today Before It’s Too Late!
It’s the end of POTS and ISDN as we know it…
When the FCC 19-72A1 order takes effect from August 2nd, 2022, the shutdown of remaining POTS and ISDN services in the US will commence and become real for many broadcasters.
What does this mean for me as a broadcaster you may ask? Well, you will be affected if you:
- Still use a POTS codec.
- Use a POTS hybrid for studio IFB circuits.
- Have any analog Plain Old Telephone Service circuits in use.
