Phone of the Day: Nortel M2616 Aries II Digital Telephone with 22 Button Key Expansion Module @ Chicago Police Headquarters 

I grabbed this photo from a screen grab about an article I was reading about the Chicago Police.  It appears they are using a Meridian 1 system with the heavily reliable M2000.  Chicago government has long used Nortel equipment for many city offices.  Most equipment in and around City Hall is Centrex with M5000 series Delta and Aries styled Centrex “P” Phones, while many of the local fire stations and police stations use their own key systems ranging from everything from Comdial to Avaya to Nortel and many others.   

I was happy to see that our serving and protecting Police are using the reliable and fail safe Nortel M2000 sets at the main headquarters.
