BoldNet IP & GPRS/3G Alarm Communications
Alarm signalling over conventional phone lines is becoming increasingly unreliable because of low cost phone routing and New Generation communications networks. At the same time, lines are becoming more expensive, costing money even when not in use, there is no guarantee they will be available when you need them and the PSTN network is approaching end of life.
The IP Network offers a fixed infrastructure cost within which you can transmit as much data as the network is able to support. And it will tell you almost immediately if there is a problem with the connection. BoldNet is used by many UK and overseas organisations for reliable IP alarm signalling protection, and there are a range of options depending on the level of risk.
In the UK, BT have announced they will stop selling new PSTN and ISDN connections by 2020 with those networks becoming end of life by 2025. So, now is the time to plan for the future.
