Farewell POTS and Hello Wireless

Today, copper telephone lines that support POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) have become an aging infrastructure. If your fire and/or security monitoring services currently rely on this antiquated technology, the time has come to consider a change. Phone carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, and others are no longer required to install or maintain existing POTS lines. According to AT&T, landlines across America could become obsolete in the very near future.

Using the cellular network, your fire alarm system reports emergencies and gets you the first response and help you need quickly. Because of recent phone company network changeovers, bandwidth harvesting, and 3G and CDMA sunsets, many of today’s systems need upgrading. To ensure it keeps on working reliably and performing its critical job such as safeguarding life, employees, clients and property in any emergency.

What does it mean to sunset something?

Sunsetting, in a business context, is intentionally phasing something out or terminating it. The term is often used in reference to brands, partnerships, agreements, business policies and hardware and software products, among other possibilities.
