Everything seems to be going over to IP these days and now even your old fashioned telephone as you know it has its days numbered, and that all important number seems to be 2025!
You may have heard rumours before that the BT network is going to be fully digital and now BT have confirmed this fact and given the industry a date for when all ‘dial tones’ will be switched off on copper phone lines as being by the end of the year 2025.
This may seem a long way off right now but like everything else in this fast moving times it will be upon us before we know it!
BT intend on starting with publicising the changeover with national newspaper, TV and radio campaigns from early 2019 and just like the changeover from analogue to digital TV’s a few years ago this change will be supported by OFCOM as well as telephone equipment providers and in the case of monitored alarm systems the intruder alarm installers.
Rest assured that we here at Chevron Alarms are not resting on our laurels, but we instead are already working closely with our alarm receiving centre, communications manufacturers and of course intruder alarm panel manufacturers to help ensure that this change over is as seamless as possible and that it will be done in plenty of time and with the least amount of cost (if indeed any!) and of course with minimal disruption.
With this on the horizon for some time now some of our existing customers from the last 3 or 4 years will in fact already have communications devices fitted that are future proofed and as such they will require little or no work when the changeover happens on their own telephone exchange.
Going forward all future alarm systems installed by Chevron Alarms will have the 2025 changeover in mind and be geared towards a fully digital solution which is going to be both cost effective and reliable.
For our loyal existing client base we will start to contact our customers on a case by case basis from next year and discussing exactly how the changeover specifically will effect them.
The CTSP Register has been formed as a means of registering Technical Security Professionals who are qualified to at least level 3 B-TEC in each discipline to work within the industry of the installation and maintenance of security and fire systems and it allows end consumers and main or sub-contractors to search the register to validate a professional persons competence.
Chevron Alarms are proud to announce our ISO 9001 standard certification recertification from ISO 9001:2008 to the latest revised standard, ISO 9001:2015.
ISO 9001 is the world’s most widely recognized quality management standard and helps organisations to meet the expectations and needs of their customers. As part of the ISO 9001:2015 certification process, Chevron Alarms engaged in a rigorous audit of our business processes and procedures as well as our product quality environments.
As a previously ISO 9001:2008 certified organisation, we have successfully completed the transition to the 2015 revision nearly one full year before the deadline to do so.
By achieving this level of certification, we continue to demonstrate our commitment, ability and desire to effectively and efficiently provide a quality management system whilst continuously improving our products and services to provide a high-quality and consistent service for our customers as well as our internal processes and procedures.
Chevron Alarms would like to thank Victoria Brennan of Fletcher Consultancy (www.fletcher-consultancy.co.uk) for her involvement in our certification. This achievement would not have been possible without her support and help in seamlessly implementing ISO 9001:2015.
