No Need for Expensive 'NBN Compliant" Phone Systems
Don’t get fooled into thinking that your business will need an entirely new phone system when the copper network is switched off. It won’t!
We are hearing about smaller business’ being told they need entirely new phone systems in order to be NBN compliant but this is just not the case. The copper network is only being cut off for PSTN services and ISDN is continuing as per normal.
Scott Hampton, General Manager of Powertec Telecommunications said, “We are making our Channel Partners aware that there are alternatives to any business unnecessarily overspending in this area.”
“It could cost you as little as $600 for the purchase of a compliant NBN Gateway product to ensure your business is up and running, ready for NBN. There are no ongoing costs and so this becomes a much more cost effective option than the quoted amounts of $10,000 for a new phone system that we have been hearing about. And this doesn’t even factor in the disruption to your business that a new phone system can cause. The good news is that this small investment should fall under the instant write-off for small business assets under $20,000, introduced in the 2015 budget*.”
Different PBX systems will require different solutions when the NBN arrives. Because the NBN utilises fibre/Wi-Fi, traditional PBX systems are over copper, so an upgrade to the SIP module will be required - this is where a Matrix gateway will come in. Using your Matrix VGFX or VFX model gateway you can convert NBN SIP to traditional analogue trunks.
Powertec is a niche Telecommunications distributor and supplies quality Matrix gateways that cover the entire myriad of PBX systems. As different PBX systems require different solutions, it would be worth checking with our professionals to run through your own business requirements.
