Phone of the Day: Mitel 5312 IP Telephone at Four Points Sheraton West Lafayette, IN

Phone of the Day: Mitel 5312 IP Telephone at Four Points Sheraton West Lafayette, IN
I spotted this sleek IP telephone at a not so sleek tired hotel in West Lafayette, IN. Originally a circa 1974 Holiday Inn with a Holidome, I am sure this hotel has seen its share of telephone systems.  I am wondering if this hotel had a Nortel PBX before the Mitel due to the fact ...

Phone of the Day: Aastra Nortel M5316 Centrex Telephone in Fredericton, New Brunswick

Phone of the Day: Aastra Nortel M5316 Centrex Telephone in Fredericton, New Brunswick
A friend of mine in New Brunswick sent me a picture of this Aastra Nortel M5316 Centrex telephone at his office.  This set is a copy cat of the M2616 PBX telephone, but it’s an analog/digital hybrid P telephone which means it only works on Meridian Digital Centrex either a Nortel DMS 100, SL-100 or ...

Phones of the Day: Aastra 390 Analog Telephones at A. Papanos Pizza in Thompsonville MI  
My friend Todd asked me to install some more modern telephones in his pizza business.  I installed these Aastra 390 sets, one for each of his phone lines.  These are analog sets that simply plug into the existing analog line, but clean up the user experience with clear caller ID and simple labeled buttons.

Phone of the Day: Disgraceful Analog Phone JW Marriott Indianapolis
While I was thoroughly impressed with my stay at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids Michigan with their full IP based NorAvaya CS1000 phone system, the JW Marriott Mitel telephone system in Indianapolis run by White Lodging, is less high tech and less desirable than that of the Grand Rapids hotel.  I found this piddly ...
