Explanation:
This remains in English, since it is an English acronym to begin with meaning "plain old telephone service", or in other words traditional analog phone service. I hope you don't mind that I don't dig up a reference on this. I'm quite familiar with this term from translating telecommunications materials.

Explanation:
POTS son las siglas en Inglés para "Plain Old Telephone Service" y quedaría sin lugar a dudas como "Los equipos objeto del presente proyecto, tendrán funciones de Centro Local para servicio telefónico ordinario, Internet..."

Espero que sea de utilidad.
