Move away from legacy PSTN and ISDN services and opt for a cost-effective and straightforward alternative such as SIP Trunking. If you can still leverage services on your existing PBX, then SIP is the ideal solution.
2025 isn’t that far away, especially when considering such a pivotal change such as how your business communicates with your customers. Voice calls are not the only systems set to be affected by the move. Many businesses will use these analogue lines for other uses, including card machines, emergency alarms, door entry systems, lift lines, and remote monitoring systems, so you will have to consider these systems when planning your migration. Don’t put this off until it becomes a last-minute decision – future-proof your business today.
Let us help...Having provided landline services for more than 20 years, we know how to look after your network, which in turn means we also understand the challenges businesses face when transitioning to SIP.

Benefits of Daisy SIP Trunking
IP connectivity costs less than ISDN. Free internal calls and lower line rental costs for multi-sites. Also, no expensive call-forwarding costs are required should you relocate or need to divert calls in the event of a disaster.
If your office has to be temporarily relocated in an emergency, you can keep your business working – quickly and cost-effectively with SIP Trunk Call Manager.
Enables you to move offices while keeping the same geographic number without any ongoing call-forwarding costs.
Works seamlessly with each of the leading IP PBX brands in the UK market.
Business-grade resilience for your telephony during peak hours or in an emergency.
For businesses with multiple sites, SIP Trunking provides the opportunity for line rationalisation and reduces the number of PBXs you need to maintain – while retaining full control of the numbers associated with your business.
Allows you to directly connect to the platform to make external calls.
Ideal if you are moving and want to keep your existing numbers. Scale up lines during busy periods and back down again afterwards. You can split calls at any time. You are always in control.
UK businesses who are also operating overseas can make calls at a reduced rate, increase resilience and enable greater flexibility.

- If a premise has GEA-FTTP available to order, then only GEA-FTTP is available to that premise and instantly become within the scope of stop-sell.
- If a premise does not have GEA-FTTP available, SOGFAST, SOGEA, GEA-FTTC, SOTAP (where no fibre is available), MPF and WLR (only until September 2023) will be available.
The same stop-sell principles will apply for the fibre exchanges in Salisbury and Mildenhall. Openreach plans to modernise its network to support the delivery of telephone services using Internet protocol (IP) technology, and to upgrade its copper lines
to fibre. As part of this, it will undertake two trials:
The Salisbury trial (Dec 2020) will test the processes for migrating customers to fibre services and, ultimately, withdrawing legacy copper services.
The Mildenhall trial (May 2021) will test the processes for withdrawing Wholesale Line Rental (WLR), and migrating customers from legacy copper services to fibre – which will support the delivery of telephone services over broadband connections. MPF and SOTAP will be available in a fibre area if there is no spare fibre capacity.

You can migrate over to a Single Order broadband product. The voice service will stop working and effectively becomes redundant in this instance. Voice service will become an optional add-on to your broadband service. Download our quick-read, all-you-need-to-know guide about SOGEA >>
Alternative copper and fibre products
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is the fastest and most resilient all-fibre product with broadband speeds of up to 1Gbps download and 220Mbps upload and can be purchased on its own.
Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) is a form of fibre optic communication delivery in which the optical fibre runs all the way from the exchange to the street cabinet and uses the existing copper network to reach the home or office. The remaining part of the access network from the cabinet to the customer is usually copper wire but could use other technologies such as wireless.
Single Order G.Fast (SOGFast) is a cutting-edge technology that delivers ultrafast speeds over existing copper lines of up to 330Mbps through a single order variant which forms part of the Openreach developing product portfolio.
Single Order GEA (SOGEA) Delivering superfast in a single order, speeds of up to 80Mbps will offer similar connectivity to FTTC without the need for an underlying Voice Access product. Download our SOGEA guide >>
Single Order Transitional Access Product (SOTAP) Supporting non-fibre areas with speeds of up to 17Mbps. This is a new product that will deliver a copper path between your premises and the SOTAP communication provider’s (CP) exchange infrastructure, over which the SOTAP CP can provide broadband and IP Voice services. This is different from a Metallic Path Facility (MPF) because it facilitates the use of existing exchange infrastructure which currently supports LLU SMPF and therefore provides a better experience when migrating away from WLR products (with or without SMPF).
Ethernet offers a wide choice of high bandwidth, permanentlyconnected point-to-point services designed to help CPs extend their own networks and deliver a range of high-quality services to their customers. The Ethernet fibre network that underpins them offers unrivalled geographic coverage of the UK, embracing many out-of-town locations where manufacturing takes place and where many data centres of the future will be located.
