Xcomm is a leading provider of high end, bespoke unified communications solutions to many household names. Solutions include business-grade hosted telephony with seamless integration of desk phones and mobile phones and SIP Trunking.
Xcomm’s business-grade hosted telephone service (using VoIP) revolutionises business communications. Xcomm’s Hosted Telephony converts voice into data, allowing business calls to be sent and received via an internet connection rather than traditional telephone and ISDN lines.
Xcomm’s Hosted Telephony offers many advantages for all public sector organisations, including:-
SIP trunks are virtual phone lines delivered through the internet to an IP PBX or hosted telephony IP handsets. They’re a more flexible, lower cost alternative to ISDN for outbound and inbound voice calls connecting a PBX to the PSTN. As well as offering significant savings it is also quicker to install and provision and offers the flexibility and reliability today’s businesses have come to expect.
Xcomm provides a number of SIP trunk solutions, either via its SIP Trunk Plus platform, or directly via the Xcomm Hosted Telephony service.
Xcomm has a range of network options, from dedicated, uncontended leased lines up to 10Gbps to secure encrypted remote access with IPSec and SSL VPNs plus cost effective multi site-to-site routing via MPLS or SD-WAN technologies. And, a dedicated CWDM or DWDM connection is the solution if you want to build a network that is versatile and efficient.

Make the change now
In the next couple of years the UK’s telecoms networks will change massively, with BT shutting down its traditional phone lines in favour of internet-based systems.
BT will not provide ISDN and PSTN services in the UK past December 2025, pushing for all its business customers to make the move to VoIP and SIP solutions. After the switch off, all PSTN and ISDN services will cease to operate and there will be no maintenance available. BT has already stopped selling ISDN services and is doing the same for PSTN lines, meaning you can't upgrade any existing services using traditional phone lines.
As part of this transition from legacy systems to an Internet service, upgrading your current legacy hardware, including PBX’s, may also be something to consider. Many older phone systems in businesses today will need to be either replaced, upgraded or have additional components added to them to allow them to continue working over new IP Telephony lines (SIP Trunks).
