Phone of the Day: Nortel 1140E IP Telephone

Quite possibly the worlds best looking IP phone, the Nortel 1140E. The buttons are playfully color coded like Lego buttons and the styling is futuristic and solid. Since its such a great set, Avaya still continues to manufacture this phones and market them for use on CS1000 and Aura. Others such as Genband and E-MetroTel support these phones on their respective systems as well. In fact with the early SIP load firmware versions 1 and 2 you can set this phone up license free on any SIP call server, even from directly from a SIP provider.

Today’s phone was installed today at my friend Chris’s place in Chicago where he will use this remote phone which is bounced off my E-MetroTel UCx.
