“RELICS OF A BY-GONE ERA” - AKA: THE IMMINENT DEATH OF THE DACT

Presentation Overview
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced plans to discontinue the use of land line telephone systems. This change will have a significant impact on the many fire alarm systems across the United States that utilize landline telephone technology and DACTs (digital alarm communicator transmitters) to monitor their fire alarm system activity. 

In 2012, the FCC gave permission to AT&T to begin the process of dismantling the landline telephone network.  The due date for “unplugging” the network is almost here, and yet there are fire alarm systems installed every day still utilizing DACT technology.  

Since many fire alarm systems throughout the country utilize the DACTs, it is advantageous for business owners and fire officials to start considering alternatives. It is recommended that all stakeholders plan appropriately to prepare for this change and transition to another technology.

A panel of experts will discuss this issue, including representatives from the telephone industry, the alarm industry, the AHJ community, and the code-making community.  The “Death of the DACT” is a reality – be prepared when AT&T pulls the plug!
