ALARM SIGNALLING IS CHANGING

The move to all IP service has started and System 9 are here to help all our customers with monitored Intruder Alarms Systems prepare for it.

Bt will be closing down its public switched telephone networks (PSTN) by 2025 and because some alarm signals are sent over PSTN they will be affected.

Openreach has already announced 170 exchanges throughout the UK where they will stop selling phone lines and communication providers will start to migrate customers to all IP.

The new technology that will replace the PSTN is faster more reliable and much easier to maintain.

It carries telephone calls and alarm signalling over a broadband connection in the same way as data.

Its vital that home and business move their alarm signalling over to the new IP network so that they are not left unprotected.

Every device that dials up using PSTN will be affected.

System 9 will help customers to prepare and continue to protect their premises using the next generation portfolio of Alarm Signalling solutions.

The BT Redcare modules we install make the transition from PSTN to IP systems easy.

It connects customers broadband over Ethernet or Wi-Fi for a speedy install.

It Exceeds SP2 performance levels reporting faults within 60 minutes. Much faster than the old Digital Communicators. 

When will the move to all-IP begin?

When will the move to all-IP begin?

The digital switchover has already started. Forward-thinking homes and businesses are also running their alarm signalling over the IP network with Next Generation portfolio. Customers can start moving over immediately to make sure they’re ready for the PSTN shutting down everywhere by 2025.

How will the PSTN shutting down affect alarm signalling systems?

Despite what its name suggests, the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) doesn’t just handle calls. It also carries alarm signals from customers’ premises to their ARCs. Therefore when the PSTN is turned off, all the alarm systems that dial out using PSTN will stop working.

What is the benefit of the digital switchover to customers?

The all-IP network will send voice calls and alarm signals the same way as data traffic, so it’ll be more reliable and much easier to maintain. This means that customers get a better service and it also means they will no longer need to pay call charges for signalling. That being said, the sooner they switch, the sooner they can save.

The switchover is all part of BT’s wider investment in the country. Along with a full-fibre broadband and 5G networks, it’ll help unlock the UK’s digital potential, benefitting all of us.

Why choose a Redcare alarm signalling system?

Redcare has more than 30 years’ experience in the security industry. They have developed all their alarm signalling systems in partnership with ARCs, installers, homeowners and businesses and designed them to be future-ready, working over 4G, IP or a combination of the two.

Are there any wireless signalling alternatives that can be used for the switchover?

All the Next Generation alarm signalling systems with a fixed connection use IP, but that’s not the only option. Some communication modules are completely wireless, connecting to the ARC over superfast 4G.

While the 3G network is also expected to shut down in the near future, 4G alarm signalling systems will be unaffected. Keeping our customers protected for years to come.
