Switzerland is going All IP. How about you?
Internet Protocol (IP) is the most established technology for data transmission worldwide. In addition to data, IP can also be used for image, film, music and voice transmission. Swisscom is planning to switch its conventional fixed network telephony services over to IP by the end of 2017. Beginning 2018, the full transition of customer lines to IP in larger regions across Switzerland will go ahead to drive dismantling of the old network infrastructure in those areas. Customers who have not yet switched to an IP product by then will be helped to do so by Swisscom. Currently, over 60,000 lines are switched to IP technology every month and around 1.6 million Swisscom customers already benefit from the advantages of IP products.
The switch to All IP is taking place around the world and means that fixed networks, TV, mobile telephony and the Internet, as well as all the services linked to them, will communicate universally, in a common language, via Internet Protocol (IP). The sooner you switch, the more key benefits you will enjoy.
With All IP you can communicate and work without restrictions on any device, anywhere, any time.
All IP simplifies communication and collaboration and reduces the complexity of voice and data services.
All IP enables new service models that optimise investment and operating costs while improving transparency.
We can give residential customers one-to-one advice about how to switch their fixed network telephones to IP. It is usually just a case of connecting the telephone cable with the new router that we provide. We recommend that small and medium sized enterprises use the switch to check their communications infrastructure and exploit the potential for All IP as effectively as possible. Our All IP experts are available to provide further information to any business customers.
As well as your conventional fixed-line telephone, the switch to IP affects many other applications that communicate via the traditional fixed network connection. You can find out more about switching specialist applications to IP here.
Arriving soon mid 2017: Swisscom is launching “Swisscom ready”, the ever-ready Swisscom access to Internet, TV and telephony. When you move you enjoy uninterrupted access to all services with “Swisscom ready”. Simply take your router with you and everything works as usual.
