Phone of the Day: Nortel M2008 Basic Aries II set @ a hospital in Indiana
Here is a photograph I took of my most favorite PBX telephone, the simple and clean functioning M2008 set from Nortel.  The design was introduced in 1989 and originally badged for the SL-1 but instead took on the Meridian 1 branding in late 1990.

My wonderful girlfriend grabbed this picture of a telephone in Mickeys house at Disneyland in California today.    I see an extension number on the phone, I wonder if it works?

Remote Nortel E-MetroTel Command Center Wayfarer Lodgings Frankfort Michigan Cabin 10 
At my cottage up North!   I switched to this cabin for one night, and it had a kitchen table where I could set up my little lab away from home.  Again, everything is running off of wifi from the main house.  This cabin is the farthest one away from the wireless router on the ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel Aastra M8004 Analog Telephone SW 262 Cary Quad Purdue University West Lafayette, IN
Greetings from my former dorm room while I attended Purdue.  I lived in this room from 1997-1999 and I had quite the Nortel setup in my room at the time.  I had three Nortel M9000 analog telephones tied together with their built in paging feature.  It wasn’t quite a Norstar system, but it was the ...

E-MetroTel and a small Michigan cabin at Wayfarer Lodgings Elberta Michigan 
Here is a photo of my latest remote setup.  I am staying at a cabin deep in the north woods of Michigan and I set up a small mini version of my UCx based on a “hosted” solution off my main UCx in Chicago.  I basically tapped into the wifi of the cabin and shared ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M3903 Digital Telephone Westin Chicago 
I walked past the Westin Chicago Michigan Avenue Hotel on Tuesday night and was quite happy to see they are using Nortel M3900 telephones for the hotel.  You don’t see too many of these platinum sets, charcoal seems to  be the most chosen color, although I prefer the platinum when it’s new out of the ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M7208 and Aiphone Intercom Ace Hardware Seattle area 

Phone of the Day: Nortel M7208 and Aiphone Intercom Ace Hardware Seattle area 
Here is yet another insanely stupid arrangement of a phone system.  Even though the Nortel phone can perform paging and intercom functions, this Ace Hardware has a Norstar system but I assume the Aiphone unit is used for paging and talking internally.  Also I believe this store further yet uses radio headsets so this makes ...
