Cloud5 Communications, a leading provider of communications solutions and managed IT services for more than 5,000 hotels, MDUs, and commercial facilities across the Americas, has today announced the unveiling of its “Flip to SIP” program in response to the FCC mandate requiring the termination of POTs-based telecommunication lines.

The program is specifically designed to provide businesses with a streamlined, cost-effective solution to transition to more modern telephony and become FCC compliant, while sidestepping rate increases that may rise by as much as 75 – 150 percent for POTs lines, as the transition deadline nears.

The FCC order 19-72A1 requires both customers and resellers of POTs line services to transition to an alternative service by August 2, 2022. As carriers work to retire antiquated copper-based POTs lines and entice customers to make the switch, businesses will likely experience rates for a single line increasing from approximately $40 - $60 to a potential high of $185.

To sidestep this issue, Cloud5’ Flip to SIP program helps properties transition to the more secure, scalable SIP technology with several cost-effective options, depending on an organization’s current telecommunications infrastructure. These options cover both current Cloud5 PBX and SIP customers, as well as properties that are not yet customers of Cloud5, and all Flip to SIP options will help properties mitigate against significant cost increases while improving their telephony technology.

“While the FCC’s decision to sunset POTs-based lines makes sense from a technological perspective, we anticipate that the transition will lead to complications and price increases,” said Mark Holzberg, President and CEO at Cloud5 Communications. “With the launch of our Flip to SIP program, Cloud5 continues to serve as the industry’s trusted provider of advanced telecommunications technology and is honored to assist organizations in meeting the mandate and ensuring a smooth flow of operations.”
