As such, the AirDial solution will be sold, written, and billed on T-Mobile for Business paper. AirDial is a POTS line replacement solution that Ooma initially announced and launched in November 2021. What's new here is T-Mobile for Business is now selling AirDial, helping build awareness and access to a POTS line replacement solution for enterprise and vertical market customers, as well as SMB customers. Why? If businesses are using PBX or UC (unified communications) systems, for example - and many are - they likely have requirements for analog device connections (e.g., fire alarm panels, building access systems, fax machines in offices, analog phones for public areas in buildings, elevators). Ooma AirDial can help address the looming issues surrounding the retirement of the PSTN copper-wire infrastructure.</P> IDC Link Fri, 23 Sep 2022 04:00:00 GMT Rich Costello, Jason Blackwell HP Inc.
