Share Article

Now that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has said phone companies can stop providing Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS), or what is thought of as landlines, costs for anyone who hangs onto theirs is going to rise fast. P-VoIP from Crosswind VoIP has just been launched to help businesses jump into digital phone service that gives them more and costs them less.

Crosswind VoIP is offering a new digital phone service to help businesses stay connected in an affordable way.

"We have put together a robust solution for those ready to jump to digital. While P-VoIP replaces the POTS landline phone system, it’s nowhere close to an even exchange. It’s an impressive, robust system that doesn’t require cabling or equipment upgrades and helps tremendously with cost savings."

Now that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has said phone companies can stop providing Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS), or what is thought of as landlines, costs for anyone who hangs onto theirs is going to rise fast. P-VoIP from Crosswind VoIP has just been launched to help businesses jump into digital phone service that gives them more and costs them less.

While the name P-VoIP might not be sexy, what it does for business owners is alluring. It offers businesses of all sizes the opportunity to not only jump from landlines like they’re a burning ship, it lets them swim over with confidence, knowing they’ll soon have better functionality at a lower cost.

The Cost of Inaction
Ask any business owner who still has copper landlines, and they’ll tell you their costs have gone up from what used to be an average of $20 per line, to today’s costs averaging over $100 each. Add in the FCC’s decision, and future costs will skyrocket quickly. That means a business with 100 lines could easily be paying in the neighborhood of $10,000 per month.

Imagine if forecasts are right and today’s rates double, then triple, and then the landlines disappear altogether. If that happens, and a business hasn’t yet gone digital, they face serious consequences. Not only won’t their phones work, their burglar alarms, elevator lines, modems, and fax lines won’t work either.

That means every business will one day face the decision to go digital—whether it’s part of cost-containment efforts or when faced with internal failures of their safety protocols.

Hello Digital, Goodbye Headaches
Kim Warren, CEO of Crosswind, explained, “We have put together a robust solution for those ready to jump to digital. While P-VoIP replaces the POTS landline phone system, it’s nowhere close to an even exchange. It’s an impressive, robust system that doesn’t require cabling or equipment upgrades and helps tremendously with cost savings.”

Even though high-tech often goes hand-in-hand with high costs and miles of cables and wires, P-VoIP is designed to easily convert old copper landlines. Crosswind’s installers add another layer of ease, translating into no downtime. No shuffling of offices. No training needed.

If there was ever a digital phone system that could be called plug and play, P-VoIP is it.

A Look Inside
P-VoIP uses a business’s existing equipment, including telephones, while changing the system to digital and running everything through the existing internet connection. This includes voice, elevator lines, fire alarms, burglar alarms, fax, emergency call box, point of sale, security gate/door access, and modem data. It also provides VPN connectivity for remote workers.

The equipment itself looks like a couple of boxes with rabbit-ear antennae set on top. It is a full, enterprise-grade router and firewall and makes sure your internet service provider is up and operating at maximum efficiency. It provides a 4G LTE cellular connection as either a primary or backup connection to eliminate any chance of downtime.

Warren added, “One of the things that sets Crosswind apart from others offering similar products is our tech department. It’s like providing each customer with their own, offsite IT department that monitors the system 24/7 to quickly handle any problems that may arise. Due to efficiencies that we have built-in, most times, the customer is unaware that a problem ever existed.”
