Dear ABSi Telecom Customer,

We want to inform you that AT&T has announced a New Network Provisioning Freeze effective immediately through 4/16/2020.

In an effort to limit potential impact during the COVID-19 Declaration of National Emergency, AT&T has decided to implement a network restriction for any planned change activity that could impact FirstNet, 911, or E911 network reliability. As such, we are now in a network freeze for new Short Codes until 4/16 (subject to change) where limited activities will be permitted.

Allowed Activities:

  • Migration of Short codes
  • Changes/Updates to existing campaigns on already live short codes
  • Adding MMS to an existing Short Code
  • Adding a new campaign to an existing Short Code

New Short Code Provisioning will only be done on codes that are somehow related to COVID-19.
Examples include, but not limited to:

  • Internal employee communications
  • News/updates on the virus
  • SMS campaigns to assist specific market segments affected including: universities, airlines, travel agencies, and health organizations.
  • Information i.e. testing locations
  • Education assistance

AT&T, being one of our largest suppliers and this change will affect our ability to perform our mission. 
We will continue to provide support to our existing customers and their services. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Support Team in the Mission Control Portal or at

Thank you,

Wicked Electrical Storm Forces Emergency Upgrade of Phone System & Presents Opportunity to Add Special Security Features

When a powerful storm swept through metropolitan Washington, D.C. early last summer, an electrical strike knocked out the entire communications system at Holy Redeemer School in nearby Kensington, MD, leaving the Catholic school without telephone service. About the only good thing about the incident was that the K-8 students were on summer break and not due to return for a couple of months. Still, the school had to make a series of quick decisions about how to restore phone service.

Everyone knew it didn’t make sense to repair the aging phone system, as was evident from replacement planning begun even before disaster struck. The cabling dated back to 1950 when the school was built and was not likely to be reused. It quickly became a question of what kind of phone system to install, and, more importantly, did the school have any special communications needs that could now be addressed?

Panasonic Business Telephone System to the Rescue

Panasonic Business Telephone System made it possible to converge disparate phone systems that had been haphazardly cobbled together over the years into a single state-of-the-art IP telephone system. Robust electrical protection was already built into the Panasonic system to ensure that future thunderstorms would not put the school’s converged data and phone network at risk. Finally, the Panasonic telephone system’s modular architecture would easily accommodate the desired security features with room
to expand.

Don’t wait for a wicked electrical storm to force you to upgrade your old telephone system.  Call ABSi for a free quote to upgrade your system today.  770.457.6144 or see us at

Customer Success Story

Panasonic Business Telephone System helps Discount Plumbing increase daily call volume witch created new sales.


Discount Plumbing needed a phone system that could
handle their growing daily call volumes more efficiently.
Their existing system was outdated, costly and required
several time-consuming manual processes.

After installing Panasonic’s KX-NS700 compact hybrid
communications platform and its KX-NT556 series phones,
communications between Discount Plumbing’s staff and
field service team was more efficient and the system’s
advanced features helped the company resolve service
calls quicker, saving time and money.
Since the installation, Discount Plumbing has experienced
improved customer service and fewer missed calls.
With features like voicemail to email, it’s now easier for
employees to take control of the customer experience and
increase productivity. The upgrade proved to be successful in
cutting costs and bringing the company’s system up to date.

When empty beds equal lost revenue, patient satisfaction is more important than ever to maintaining a
profitable senior care facility. A Panasonic Senior Care Facility Communications Solution is a scalable, cost-effective,
fully-integrated communications and alarm management system that improves patient/resident
satisfaction, caregiver morale, and the company’s bottom line.

The KX-DTU100 can be administered through a centralized
communications server, so the administration is efficient and
convenient. Three one-touch buttons can be centrally programmed
as simple speed dials and can also play back pre-recorded
information of commonly asked questions such as the day’s food and drink menu or general facility announcements, saving staff hours otherwise spent on the phone.
