Reliable Connections with POTS from AireSpring
Plain old telephone service, or “POTS,” is the traditional telephone analog system that has been in use for many decades.
While POTS has been gradually phased out in many cities, it is still in use in some areas, particularly in rural and remote locations where it may be more cost-effective or practical to maintain existing infrastructure.
POTS Use Cases
POTS lines have traditionally been used for critical applications such as elevators, fire alarms, security gates, and other safety systems. These applications often require a reliable and dedicated communication link to ensure their proper functioning in emergency situations. POTS lines are known for their reliability and the ability to maintain a connection even during power outages, which is crucial for emergency services.
Many older elevator systems have relied on POTS lines to establish communication between the elevator car and the building’s control center. This connection allows for emergency communication and enables the control center to respond promptly in case of malfunctions or emergencies.
Fire alarm systems in commercial buildings often use POTS lines as a means of communication between fire alarm control panels and central monitoring stations. POTS lines provide a consistent and dedicated connection to transmit fire alarm signals, ensuring that authorities are quickly notified in case of a fire or other emergencies.
Certain security gates, especially in remote areas or gated communities, may still use POTS lines to communicate with the security office or a central monitoring system. This ensures that gate access control remains functional and dependable.
