ISDN End of Life
ISDN has been the foundation of communications in Australia for years. However soon the legacy of ISDN will come to an end.
What is ISDN?
As the original high-speed internet service, ISDN (Integrated Service Digital Network) triggered the development of faster internet during the 1990s. It was a big improvement upon dial-up and was the first technology that allowed us to make calls and use the internet simultaneously. The data lines of ISDN were a big advantage as they delivered constant data speeds and provided the flexibility to combine data lines or to use them individually.
Make way for a new network
Now, the ISDN is being disconnected to make way for the NBN network. Consequently, Australian carriers will phase out all ISDN services over the next five years. Disconnections will commence in June 2019. However, from June 2018, existing customers will no longer be able to add to or modify their ISDN services. It no longer makes sense to invest in this outdated technology. Now is the time to start thinking beyond ISDN, and make the switch to future-proof communications.
