Got POTS? You need EPIK
Today, copper telephone lines that support POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) are an aging infrastructure that is deteriorating rapidly. The FCC and major telephone providers like AT&T have already started phasing out their support of analog POTS lines, pushing customers to fiber or wireless connections. Over the next few years, POTS will only get more expensive and offer fewer options. So what should companies do? What about applications that run natively better on analog lines, like security alarms, gate systems, and FAX lines? What do you do when POTS goes away? You need Epik!
Bridging the Digital Gap
Meet the EPIK™ Central Office in a Box™
Our patent-pending EPIK™ BOX is delivered over 4G LTE using PoLTE, instead of over copper telephone lines. It replaces your current analog lines, without all the headaches and high costs of dealing with end-of-life POTS issues.
Cost-effective POTS replacement – Businesses are gradually moving to unified communication (UC) solutions but these services do not work well with thousands of ‘analog era’ devices. As POTS lines are phased out, the EPIK™ BOX is a cost-effective POTS replacement solution to keep your business moving forward.
Greater redundancy – The EPIK™ BOX runs on an internet connection or 4G LTE so you also have greater redundancy and failover.
Enhanced performance – Unlike degrading copper lines, the EPIK™ BOX is much more reliable. And, if something does go wrong, 90% of the time it can be fixed remotely, so repairs are much faster.
Connect with Confidence
EPIK is the only device of its kind to qualify as a Managed Facility Voice Network (MFVN) basically ensuring that you have service quality and reliability from your location to the PSTN or other MFVN peer network. This allows all fire and security providers to partner with EPIK with confidence other solutions can not offer.
NO COPPER LINES? NO PROBLEM.
Solving POTS for the Digital Era
The EPIK™ BOX is a simple solution to a very complex problem. It works by relying on 4G LTE or an internet connection and a built-in lithium battery that is being constantly recharged by a standard 110V power outlet. On top of providing everyday connectivity, in the event of a power outage, the EPIK™ BOX delivers unmatched failover connectivity.
