Single Order Generic Ethernet Access (SOGEA) Broadband - How does this affect my business?

The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) was the familiar landline telephone system set up for analogue voice communication, which became the most reliable method of making voice calls. Then, as we know it today, it has also become the main carrier for internet activity across the world.

Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) followed, allowing the digital transmission of voice, video and other services simultaneously, using the traditional PSTN network. By 2025, this traditional copper network will no longer support business lines or personal broadband.

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is the current and future platform used to traffic voice hence the term Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which allows users to make voice and video calls on a global scale using computer and mobile devices with an internet connection.

What is SOGEA Broadband

Dial-RedAsset 1
  • A data-only broadband solution that is provisioned on a single order
  • It does not include voice services or a WLR/MPF line
  • Voice becomes what we call an Over The Top (OTT) service like other data services
  • It is based on current FTTC technology, using a combination of copper and fibre technology, without requiring a traditional telephony connection

The arrival of SOGEA Broadband transforms the way businesses work. Offering download speeds of up to 80Mbps, SOGEA provides faster, more reliable connectivity than ADSL, meaning users can do more online, without worrying about buffering.

Newly fitted elevators are likely to be IP enabled, however older lifts are not, and this is where the challenge occurs. It’s best to contact your lift manufacturer to understand what solutions they can provide which will convert it to an all IP enabled solution.

Migration is easy, just ask us to rearrange your PSTN lines as SOGEA and we will rearrange your FTTC feed at the same time.
