SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ooma, Inc., a smart communications platform for businesses and consumers, today announced that T-Mobile for Business is now offering Ooma AirDial, an innovative solution for replacing traditional voice line service, or POTS, as part of its Internet of Things portfolio.
T-Mobile offers a wide range of IoT products and services for businesses of all sizes with solutions that are ready to deploy, customizable and secure. Customers of T-Mobile for Business can learn about Ooma AirDial at https://www.t-mobile.com/business/solutions/iot/pots-phone-network and place an order through a T-Mobile for Business sales representative.
Analog copper-wire phone lines, also known as plain old telephone service or POTS, are being rapidly phased out by legacy telecommunications providers. This “copper sunset” creates a significant challenge for maintaining safety devices and business-critical systems that require a POTS line – ranging from fire alarm panels to elevator phones, fax machines, public safety phones, building access systems and more – that often can’t be migrated to voice over internet, or VoIP, service. Meanwhile, the monthly cost of business POTS lines is escalating rapidly and reliability is declining.
Ooma AirDial (https://www.ooma.com/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 deployments can be remotely managed through an online portal with automated alerts, reducing expensive “truck rolls” and lowering incident response time.
Ooma and T-Mobile have established a direct connection for AirDial between T-Mobile’s network and Ooma’s cloud-based phone service, enhancing reliability and call quality. This direct connection also means calls do not traverse the public internet – a regulatory requirement for some life safety systems, such as fire alarm panels.
“We are excited to have a telecommunications leader such as T-Mobile for Business raising awareness of copper sunset and sharing our Ooma AirDial solution with their vast customer base,” said Chris Burgy, vice president of corporate development at Ooma. “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.”
