Phone of the Day: Nortel T7208 at Shoppers Drug Mart Eaton Centre Toronto
As I was visiting my favorite Canadian city Toronto this past week, I also visited my favorite drug store Shoppers Drug Mart at the Eaton Centre.   Shoppers Drig Mart has long been a Nortel client and hopefully Emetrotel can keep them that way.  Their parent company is now Loblaws which is a Panasonic key ...

E-MetroTel UCx 50 Installation at a Transport Business in The Toronto Area
I visited an install for a Nortel CICS upgrade to an E-MetroTel UCx 50 this past week.  The client decided to keep their digital phones and then add one IP client for the CEO to use at home.    The old Norstar CICS next to the new IP based UCx 50E.    Another side by ...

Phone of the Day: Toshiba DP-5022-SDM LCD Digital Telephine at Summerhill LCBO Flagship Toronto Ontario 

Phone of the Day: Toshiba DP-5022-SDM LCD Digital Telephine at Summerhill LCBO Flagship Toronto Ontario 
The last time I visited this lovely LCBO liquor outlet in Ontario they had a really good condition Nortel Norstar system.  I am now sad to see they updated to less exciting Toshiba equipment.  They could have kept their Nortel equipment and Ontario/Canadian roots and updated to a UCx from Emetrotel.  Now a Canadian retailer ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M7310 at Mill Street Brewing Toronto Ontario
My friend installed the BCM telephone system at the Mill Street Brew Pub in the Distillery District in the Corktown Area of Toronto.   His installed M7310 is seen at the host stand.  The beer and food here is definitely worth the visit.  I was there on a Tuesday night, and the bar had four ...

Phone of the Day (2): Nortel M3902 Digital Telephone at Hudsons Bay Downtown Toronto Ontario
Today’s second phone is a Nortel M3902 digital telephone operating on quite possibly the best department store pbx in the world, the Nortel CS1000 at the flagship Bay department store at Yonge and Bloor in downtown Toronto.  I feature a phone pic a year and a half ago from here, but figured I would show ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel 1140E with A Key Expansion Module: Brampton Ontario 

Phone of the Day: Nortel 1140E with A Key Expansion Module: Brampton Ontario 
Here is one of the coolest phones on the market that I observed in the Toronto area, a Nortel 1140E with a KEM for auto dials.   This telephone should not use a POE connection when using a KEM as the KEM requires a power supply.  Using both a power supply and a POE port ...

Phone of the Day: Mitel 5360 IP Telephone Toronto Park Inn

Phone of the Day: Mitel 5360 IP Telephone Toronto Park Inn
I recently observed this Mitel 5360 IP telephone in a hotel room I stayed at in Toronto.  It’s definitely a very sophisticated telephone with some pretty cool features.  I set up a Nortel i2004 next to it from my Emetrotel system and plugged it into my laptop and called the Mitel phone.   It has ...

Spotted on the desk of a realty office in this fine town in Ontario that I am visiting tonight, is this multi buttoned Nortel M7324 which wasoriginally introduced in 1988 with the release of the Norstar System from Nortel.  This is a good choice for an executives desk or a receptionst phone. CAP modules can ...

Today’s post is about 911 and calling as well as some of the terminology associated with it. First off, let’s take the place you’re ...

Phone of the Day: Iwatsu Omega Phone ADIX IX-24KTD Grey Digital Telephone at Illinois State University Bookstore 

Phone of the Day: Iwatsu Omega Phone ADIX IX-24KTD Grey Digital Telephone at Illinois State University Bookstore 
Look at this beast of a telephone.  This system is clearly outdated and old.  It makes a Nortel M series phone from the 1990s look space age.
