Thinking about moving to the Cloud? Here’s why you should:
Ford® is working on it. Along with CitiGroup®, Target®, Google™ and Microsoft® as well.
The “it,” of course, is the cloud.
As technology advances, service providers like Verizon are requiring their enterprise customers to make the move from plain old telephone lines (POTS) to the cloud.
But “if it ain’t broke, why fix it?”
It ain’t broke yet.
In August 2019, the FCC issued order 19-72A1 requiring that all U.S. POTS lines get replaced with an alternative service by August 2, 2022.
The order states that “given the sweeping changes in the communications marketplace…we find that the public interest is no longer served by maintaining these legacy regulatory obligations and their associated costs.”
Additionally, POTS lines are:
- Aging and expensive to repair
- Increasingly difficult to find replacement parts for
- Losing technicians as they retire from the field
What this means for your business.
Service providers are cracking down on their enterprise customers to ensure they migrate to the cloud.
According to a December 2021 NoJitter.com article, Verizon Business sent a notice to all of its customers that they must completely migrate to a new product no later than April 30, 2022 or risk total disconnection.
And with the FCC migration deadline of August 2022, it is only a matter of time before other major service providers follow suit.
