The problem with POTS.

POTS has been the backbone of communications for decades. But today, prices are rising. Maintenance response is slowing. And new lines are unavailable in some places.

Smart telecom managers know it’s time to have a plan for POTS transition. When applications require more than just voice, and demand full TDM compatibility, 24/7 remote out-of-band monitoring and enterprise-scale deployment support, Granite EPIK is the best choice.

Why choose Granite EPIK.

When it comes to POTS replacements, the decision goes well beyond just cost savings. More than a simple POTS replacement, Granite EPIK is qualified as an MFVN (Managed Facilities-based Voice Network) device and provides a POTS alternative that is fully compatible with fire, safety and virtually all other analog devices. What’s more, Granite EPIK provides 4G LTE connectivity and cellular backup if primary internet access is unavailable.
