Misconceptions about VoIP CAN hurt you and your subscribers. It is a fallacy that if your customer uses POTS they are not affected by VoIP challenges. Any of your alarm subscribers that use Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) WILL be impacted by VoIP and the result is serious--unreliable signal reporting.
