Our telephony services

In addition to telecommunications asset recovery for infrastructure works, we also provide services in relation to networking, integration, and desktop telephony equipment. These services include:

  • POPs compliance for all plastics – Persistent Organic Pollutants (“POPs”), are highly toxic chemicals that can negatively affect us and the environment which may be contained within redundant assets. We process and dispose of all POPs in compliance with current legislation.
  • Disposal and recycling of all telephony and networking equipment – We have a 100% recycling policy, which means that we try to send nothing to landfill helping your company do its bit for the environment.
  • Data Destruction and GDPR compliance – Any data within data storing devices are destroyed.

The Process

PSTN and ISDN switch off

Both PSTN (public switched telephone network) and ISDN (integrated services digital network) are due to be decommissioned by December 2025. This means that the traditional telephone systems that are currently in use are in the process of being wound down and will no longer operate from December 2025. If you are currently using these systems then you need to act now so that your vital lines of business communication are uninterrupted.

PLEXSTAR are able to assist with the decommissioning of all aspects of your outgoing networking equipment; everything from PBX to desktop handsets. We can also assist in transferring you over to internet-based or VoIP (Voice Over IP) telephone systems. Best of all, we can either provide our services to you directly or on a sub-contractor basis with your existing IT and managed services provider.

POPS Plastics

The Environment Agency has updated its policies on what WEEE must be classified as and how businesses must dispose of it. These changes will help reduce the harmful persistent organic pollutants (also known as POPs) that are being released into the environment and improve the processes that deal with their safe disposal.

POPs are highly likely to be contained in some telephony equipment – especially older equipment – either within the plastics, cables, or their internal components. Our processes mean that we dispose of assets containing POPs in an environmentally responsible way, helping you to reduce the negative impact on the environment, ensuring your compliance with the legal way of secure disposal, and reducing your carbon footprint.
