BORSCHT is an acronym for:

Battery feed
Overvoltage protection

The electronic functions collectively known as BORSCHT are used in Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) telephony signaling, line supervision and telephone terminal operation. BORSCHT circuitry is typically located on a telecommunications network line card and is increasingly integrated into a chipset by several semiconductor companies for low-cost implementation of a standard POTS telephone interface for non-traditional telephony networks such as cable television networks, fiber optic, VoIP and wireless local loop.

Some first generation digital Class 5 telephone switches or end office switches reduced the termination costs by using analog switching (concentrators) to a common Codec.
