PSTN Line or Fixed Wire Phone

PSTN (the Public Switched Telephone Network) is the traditional analogue phone system, commonly used in businesses and residences around Australia. PSTN runs on copper pair cables into your building.

PSTN can be used for phone lines, fax lines, EFTPOS lines and Internet access. If your business requires more than one (1) line, PSTN phone lines can be grouped together via a feature called “line hunt”. This means you have a main advertised telephone number, and when this line is busy it automatically cycles additional calls to the remaining auxillary lines, which feature line hunt. This would then be shown on your phone system as Line 1, Line 2, Line 3, and so on.
