Public Switched Telephone Network or PSTN is an aggregate of the world’s circuit-switched telephone networks. These copper-based networks around the world are operated by national, regional, and local carriers.
However, this telephony network is based on outdated infrastructure which is gradually being replaced globally. In fact, Europe will have completely replaced the PSTN by 2025.
And as cloud communications continue to be adopted, modern telecom companies are helping businesses migrate their voice communications from PSTN to the cloud.
When you implement a cloud-based PSTN replacement service, your calls travel through local routes within target countries instead of international ones. This is crucial because local governments and operators are blocking the ability to use international routes to send calls globally.
PSTN replacement, therefore, enables your number to be a true local phone number, guaranteeing that calls to and from these countries will definitely work. In addition to this, your business also gets:
- High-quality inbound and outbound calling
- Local, mobile, toll-free, and national number availability (up to 30 countries for true local calling)
- Localized caller ID and number masking for outbound calls
- Access to in-country toll-free numbers
- Number portability, and
- DTMF signaling.
