Network transformation reduces cost, provides enhanced functionality, and eliminates dependence on archaic copper networks.


Effective communication systems play a pivotal role in fire and burglar alarm applications, serving as the lifeline during emergencies. Reliable and fast communication are critical in emergency situations.


Many organizations are faced with the retirement of traditional copper POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) lines. As telecom carriers have been in a years-long process of phasing out this older technology, costs have been rising, sometimes to as high as $1,400 per month for a single phone line. In addition, telecom carriers are decreasing the service of copper infrastructure, and have been discontinuing certain products as they retire their copper networks.


DataRemote’s POTS IN A BOX is an IP and cellular appliance designed to seamlessly substitute traditional PSTN POTS lines complying with the standards of NFPA 72. The CDS Series of equipment is recognized by UL (Underwriters Laboratory) as an M.F.V.N (Managed Facilities Voice Network) and is a physical, facilities-based network that interacts on the network side of the DEMARC.
