Phones of the Day: Nortel and 1A2 Phones at CBS New York

Just like at ABC News, CBS is also a large Nortel (Avaya Blue) customer.  I captured these photos of Dan Rather, Dave Letterman and others, around Nortel phones at CBS in New York.  It appears that CBS was originally using the Delta series M2009 sets during the 1990s as there were always two sets sitting behind Dan Rather on the evening news.  More recently it appears that they have upgraded to the M2616 Aries II sets and very recently, my favorite, the 1100 series IP sets.  I also threw in some older pics of Dan Rather using 1A2 analog telephones. I assume CBS upgraded to the NT Meridian equipment sometime around 1990.
