Phone of the Day: Cisco 7960 SIP Telephone on an Asterisk Digium Platform at Milwaukee Ale House Milwaukee, WI
My fiancé and I visited Milwaukee last Saturday night and I spotted this Cisco 7960 IP phone at the host stand of the Milwaukee Brewing Company’s Alehouse.  The early SIP firmware for the early 7900 sets was fairly easy to program, even just by toggling through the telephone itself to change the parameters.  It’s obvious ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M7310 Digital Telephone at A Senior Citizens Center in the Seattle Area
Justin, my friend and counterpart on this blog, sent me this photo of a M7310 with a T series platinum handset mismatched and placed on the phone.  The “10” in M7310 stands for 10 dedicated line feature buttons on the lower right side of the phone under the display.  These were quite the perfect phones ...

Phone of the Day: Avaya 1408/1608 Telephone at Chicago Union Station 
Today’s phone comes to you from the Great Hall in Chicago’s Union Station.  I can’t tell if this is a digital or IP telephone so it could either be the 1408 digital or the 1608 IP set. It appears Amtrak staff members unplug the handset when the kiosk is not staffed.   These phones must ...

This large hospital is run by an Alcaltel Lucent PBX, one of the very few PBXs I’ve seen of this brand in Chicago.  This lobby phone was on the wall and I snapped a photo of if.  Most phones in the hospital are digital or IP based.

Phone of the Day: Cisco 8841 IP Telephone at Whole Foods Market in Wheaton, IL
Whole Foods Market phone system installations were originally a mish-mosh of different phone systems including Panasonic Digital and most recently Toshiba DK Strata/CIX. A few years ago they went all Cisco with 7900 series sets appearing in their stores.  Even though Cisco has long considered the 7900 series sets reliable and sturdy, they finally pulled ...
