POTS Replacement

Introducing POTS Transformation

Digitally transform all your POTS lines.

POTS line providers continue to retire copper/POTS (plain old telephone service) voice infrastructure and support, drastically increasing pricing and fees year-over-year. As companies find a path toward digital transformation, it’s clear they must make plans for POTS line replacement and weigh their POTS replacement options. Moving voice and data services that traditionally require analog devices and dial tones, such as POTS phone lines, alarms, elevators, fax, etc., is an especially daunting task. Now there’s an alternative. MetTel’s POTS Transformation simplifies the complexity and provides a cost-effective and seamless transition that transforms all POTS devices, POTS phone lines, and anything with a POTS connection, such as security alarms and elevator phones, to digital voice service.

  • Versatility

    MetTel’s POTS Transformation supports voice and data services that traditionally rely on the POTS network and require analog dial tones such as fax, alarms, elevators, POS terminals, vending machines, ATMs, E-911, and voice lines—so you can safely digitally transform POTS landline functionality to cloud voice and data services.

  • Always-Up Connection

    MetTel is a managed facilities voice network (MFVN) operator and provides the best POTS line replacement options. The POTS in a Box adapter connects to the internet via broadband, Wi-Fi and/or 4G LTE SIM. Wireless backup provides business continuity during primary network outages. Dual SIMs provide added fail-over protection, perfect for 911 call completion assurance.

  • Ongoing Management

    From deployment to final POTS replacement, MetTel oversees the entirety of your POTS Transformation process, including professional installation, 24/7/365 NOC monitoring and support, over-the-air firmware updates, and break/fix support with emergency replacement.

  • Best Coverage

    With our network equipment strategically placed throughout the country, MetTel provides access to all three major cellular providers with prequalification of LTE/5G coverage in your area. Cellular can be the primary connectivity if Wi-Fi or broadband are not available, or act as a backup in the event of primary circuit failure.

  • Turn-Key Deployment

    MetTel makes deployment and ongoing management easy. MetTel’s POTS Transformation includes nationwide, professional installation and managed equipment to transition all POTS lines, POTS devices, and POTS communication to digital service.

  • Cost Savings

    As carriers are retiring their existing POTS lines/analog voice infrastructure and support, costs are increasing year-over-year. Save money with POTS line replacement and stabilize fees by taking advantage of a fixed cost and an all-inclusive package.

  • Flexibility

    Using our cloud-based platform, MetTel’s POTS Transformation provides flexible and seamless digital transformation that can be customized to fit any business need. We seamlessly migrate businesses from their current POTS network infrastructure to cloud voice and data services—reducing costs and complexity.

    Our POTS Transformation solutions scale with the growth of your business. Our services are elastic, which allows businesses to add or remove features in response to changing conditions. By scaling up and down as needed, businesses can ensure that their communications requirements are always met.
