Do you need your POTS scrubbed? (...POTS as in Plain Old Telephone Service)
Why Are Many Organizations Paying for Scores of Unused Analog Phone Lines?
A decade or more ago, analog services were used for many applications - voice hunt groups, modem banks, remote access services, credit card authorization, ATMs, elevator lines, and a variety of other purposes. As systems have converted to digital and then IP access, most of those old applications for analog services have been replaced, but many organizations have been left with bills that contain scores of no-longer-used analog services … and related costs that can run into six figures on an annual basis.
It's Not a Simple Problem to Solve Internally
There can be a temptation to cancel all analog service just to be done with the billing mess, but some critical applications may still rely on those analog lines. Few IT departments have the staff or time to sort out those old analog services. There are too many other pressing projects and priorities.
