What are elevator communications?

Traditional phone systems consist of dated communications technology and relies on hard-wired phone lines that can be more expensive than necessary and are prone to failures. These dedicated lines are unreliable and can only be tested with an onsite mechanic. This makes owning and operating traditional phone systems a hassle and financial burden to upkeep. It’s even a potential safety hazard.

What phone service does consolidated provide?
