In a Copper-Wire Rut? T-Mobile Brings in Ooma's AirDial Solution

By Greg Tavarez

Businesses that use aging copper-based landline infrastructure – commonly known as plain old telephone service (POTS) – are challenged when migrating to IP-based communications services. The problem maintaining safety devices and business-critical systems that require a POTS line, such as fire alarm panels, elevator phones, fax machines, public safety phones and building access systems, often can’t be migrated to a VoIP service.

The cost of business POTS adds to that challenge, especially when the quality of the network continues to plummet. There does not seem to be a light at the tunnel for businesses that rely on POTS phone lines – especially as POTS lines continue to move towards a sunset.

At least that’s what everyone thinks. To provide a more cost-effective solution for businesses that are dependent on POTS phone lines, while adding to its range of IoT solutions, T-Mobile for Business is offering Ooma AirDial, an innovative solution POTS replacement solution.

Ooma AirDial provides turnkey replacement for POTS lines by combining the AirDial base station with virtual analog phone service and a data connection through the nationwide T-Mobile network. AirDial runs on a dedicated wireless network and each unit can support up to four life system safety devices. Migration is easy, and AirDial is self-installed or set up by technicians. Existing phone numbers can also be ported.

Probably more importantly for businesses, replacing copper lines with AirDial reduces monthly phone bill up to as much as 60%. Consolidating POTS needs with Ooma means businesses get one bill, with one flat rate and zero surprises. Ooma also offers flexible pricing models to suit every POTS replacement need.

“With AirDial, any organization, regardless of size, now has access to POTS replacement that’s simple to deploy and will in many cases immediately cut their monthly telecom costs,” said Chris Burgy, vice president of corporate development at Ooma.

AirDial is another solution provided by T-Mobile in its IoT portfolio to drive positive business results for businesses of all sizes.
