PortaOne Helps Telecom With Longtime Family Ownership Remain Competitive In Pennsylvania Market

Ironton Telephone Company, in Business Since 1909, Powers New Portfolio of Cloud-Based Communications Services Via High-Value PortaSwitch B/OSS & Switching Platform

When William “Butch” George, owner of the local butcher shop in a small eastern Pennsylvania town, got into the telephone business with six customers back in 1909, he couldn’t possibly have foreseen an industry built on satellites, fiber optics, and cloud-based communications.

Nearly 110 years later, however, his company — now one of the most progressive family-owned telecoms in the United States — has found the formula for not only competing, but also thriving, in this hotly competitive field.

So what’s all the buzz about with remote employees, why are companies making the switch?

One thing that most people hate doing is commuting to their jobs. Not only having to wake up earlier to beat the traffic but also dealing with the overall stress of the commute, gas expense, parking, uncertainty of traffic, etc.. When your employees start the day out happier with less stress, they are going to perform better.

Digital VS IP Phone Systems

Digital Systems have been around for decades. Many of these systems have proven to last 10 to 20 years in some cases, showing strong reliability in the work place. In the past few years, these legacy systems have added expandability and functionality such as T1, PRI, Automatic Call Distribution and much more and some models can scale to thousands of end points (phones) with great reliability.

IP Systems originated over a decade ago, and today, some of these systems can scale to tens of thousands of units in dozens if not hundreds of locations.

So what is the advantage of an IP Phone system over a traditional systems?

Why is your number port taking so long?

On first thought, moving your phone numbers from provider to provider seems like a simple idea. But in reality, it’s a process with a lot of complication behind the scenes. In order for your number to port in a timely manner, the entire process has to go right.

It starts way back in history.

To understand how porting works, and what the process entails, you first need to understand the system porting was invented to work with – the POTS network of yore.

Phone numbers are maps.

The business of VoIP

Selling telephone equipment can be difficult. For starters, you have to commit to a brand, often there are quotas, products to stock on the shelf, replacement parts, and then you have the issue with turnaround of technicians, after you have spent the money to train them. Installation can be complex and scale may not be easy; often involving a change in hardware, or add-ons, and/or licensing add-ons, disruption to the client, disruption to services at times. Costs can easily mount or scale can be impossible at times without forklifting the equipment.
