Migration for Your Nortel BCM Phone System
BCM has a strong product history with Nortel that was first launched in 2000 with the BCM 2.0 and it has had several revisions over the years. The brand was divided into groups with the BCM50, suitable for smaller companies with 3-30 extensions up to BCM 450, which can handle 300 extensions. Given that Avaya acquired Nortel, Avaya has planned for BCM migration and integration with the Avaya IP Office platform.
Why Migrate Your BCM?
The big question becomes, if your existing Nortel BCM phone system is doing the job, why change? The BCM Telephone System is being discontinued in March 2012 and support will be ending 2017 so it is imperative that you have a solid migration strategy. Avaya understands that phone system owners want to protect their phone system investment. For a full list of the ways your migration is protected please view our Protect Your Investment.
The next step is to determine a migration plan that is right for your organization (use our Migration Check List). However, looking closely at the communication and collaboration advantages provided through an upgrade to IP Office will, in many cases, pay for itself.
