ISDN End of Life

ISDN has been the foundation of communications in Australia for years. However soon the legacy of ISDN will come to an end.

 

What is ISDN?

As the original high-speed internet service, ISDN (Integrated Service Digital Network) triggered the development of faster internet during the 1990s. It was a big improvement upon dial-up and was the first technology that allowed us to make calls and use the internet simultaneously. The data lines of ISDN were a big advantage as they delivered constant data speeds and provided the flexibility to combine data lines or to use them individually.

 

Make way for a new network

Now, the ISDN is being disconnected to make way for the NBN network. Consequently, Australian carriers will phase out all ISDN services over the next five years. Disconnections will commence in June 2019. However, from June 2018, existing customers will no longer be able to add to or modify their ISDN services. It no longer makes sense to invest in this outdated technology. Now is the time to start thinking beyond ISDN, and make the switch to future-proof communications.

Call-Back Scam Hitting Australia

Have you missed call from Tunisia lately? How about Cameroon?

If you have, you’re not alone. There’s been a huge wave of these phone calls hitting Australian mobiles recently. And here’s a hot tip – don’t call them back!

What these missed calls probably are is a call-back scam known as ‘Wangiri’ which translates from Japanese to “one ring and cut”. The scam works by leveraging the good phone etiquette of its victims. Scammers will call mobile numbers at random, and when a number is connected, they will disconnect the call after a few rings. 

 

When someone sees a missed call from an unknown number on their phone, they will return the call without realising the number carries a huge per-minute call rate (think psychic hotline or adult phone chat) as well as the higher than usual charges associated with international calls.

Once the call is connected the scammer will try and keep you on the line as long as possible, often telling you that you’ve won a large sum of money or that a family member has been seriously injured or killed. If you have received one of these calls, it does not mean your private information has been breached. Police believe that the mobile number generation is automated and calling numbers at random.

Keep in mind, it’s never a good idea to return calls from unknown international numbers.
