The move to all-IP

With the move to all-ip, alarm signalling is changing

With the move to all-IP, alarm signalling is changing. The move to all-IP has started and we want to help you prepare for it.

BT Group will be shutting down its public switched telephone network (PSTN) by the end of 2025. And because some alarm signals are sent over PSTN, they’ll be affected.


Salisbury and Mildenhall were the first areas to start moving to all-IP. Openreach have announced a number of exchanges where they will stop selling phone lines and a national stop sell date of September 2023. Communication providers are migrating customers to all-IP now.


But don’t panic. The new digital technology that will replace the PSTN is faster, more reliable and much easier to maintain. It’s called the IP network. It carries telephone calls and alarms signals over a broadband connection, in the same way as data.


Act now. It’s vital that homes and business move their alarm signalling over to the new IP network so that they aren’t left unprotected. Every device that dials up using the PSTN will be affected.


That’s where we come in. Redcare can help you to prepare and protect your customers, using our Next Generation portfolio of alarm signalling solutions. They’re competitively priced. And they’ll unlock new opportunities for your business.
