POTS stands for - Plain Old Telephone Service. Its more frequently referred to as a "standard" phone line or an analog line.
These are the familiar circuits and lines
used by business and homes primarily for voice communication. This leads to the
classification of "voice grade". These days, it's considered an older technology.
However, data (fax), the internet and other types of communication scenarios are still using this technology today.
Even though the technology is considered somewhat outdated, it continues to be heavily used and is very reliable.
The reliability and reasonable cost of the Plain Old Telephone Service can be seen - to a small degree - as an advantage over newer types of communication systems.
In addition, it’s generally more readily available in most areas, especially in rural locations.
Regardless of the use for this type of communication line, it's vulnerable to transient voltage activity. These lines should be protected as they provide a direct pathway for serious and expensive equipment to be damaged.
The primary culprit for damage comes from lighting strikes.
The best option is to protect the telephone line at the entrance point of the building or home.
This will help prevent the power surge from moving beyond the point of demarcation within your structure. It's the best option for saving your business phone, home phone or other connected equipment from serious damage.
A second level of protection nearest the equipment is a great additional protective option as well.
