Migrate your Norstar or Meridan Phone System
In 1988, Nortel developed the Meridian Norstar/Nortel PBX system and it quickly became one of the leading telephone systems in the world due to the use of fully digital parts. Installations included major retail chains, educational environments, medical institutions, government facilities, and many places where key telephone systems are required.
The Norstar system blurred the distinction between a key telephone system and PBX telephone system, but this created issues when selecting phones that could work on both systems. As a result, the Business Communication Manager (BCM) was created.
Given that one of the main migration paths for the Norstar/Nortel PBX System is being discontinued (the BCM System) in March 2012 means that the only migration option for Norstar Phone System owners is IP Office.
