Ooma AirDial™ POTS Replacement Solution Wins Best Endpoint Product Award from UC Today

Sunnyvale, CA - Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022

Ooma, Inc. (NYSE: OOMA), a smart communications platform for businesses and consumers, today announced that its Ooma AirDial solution for replacing obsolescent copper-wire phone lines has been named Best Endpoint Product for 2022 in the prestigious UC Awards from the publication UC Today (https://www.uctoday.com/unified-communications/uc-awards-2022-winners/).

Ooma was chosen by a panel of eight leading unified communications industry analysts (https://awards.uctoday.com/judges/) from a field of five finalists that included Alcatel-Lucent, Jabra, Mitel and Poly.

Analog copper-wire phone lines, also known as plain old telephone service or POTS, are being rapidly phased out by telecommunications providers. This creates a significant challenge for safety devices and business-critical systems that require a POTS line – ranging from fire alarm panels to elevator phones, fax machines, public safety phones, building access systems and more – that often can’t be migrated to voice over internet, or VoIP, service. Meanwhile, the monthly cost of business POTS lines is escalating rapidly and reliability is declining.

Ooma AirDial (https://www.ooma.com/airdial/) provides turnkey replacement for POTS lines by combining the AirDial base station with virtual analog phone service and a data connection through a nationwide wireless network. With low up-front cost for the base station and for monthly service, AirDial delivers both immediate savings and long-term protection from the “copper sunset” of POTS through a solution that is easy to install and manage.

“POTS replacement is an urgent need for all types of businesses and Ooma shows true innovation in bringing together its experience in hardware, software and communications services to deliver a drop-in substitute for POTS lines,” said Rob Scott, publisher of UC Today.

“We are honored and grateful for this recognition, especially because Ooma AirDial was selected by distinguished industry analysts who are intimately familiar with the entire range of UC product offerings,” said Jim Gustke, vice president of marketing at Ooma. “The UC Award for 2022 validates the excitement we’re seeing for AirDial from both our customers and our channel partners.”
