Nortel, also known as Nortel Norstar or Meridian Phone Systems, was one of the best in the world of telephony; an industry giant. Unfortunately, after its initial transition from PBX to IP PBX, Nortel Networks and its famous BCM 50 (Business Communications Manager 5.0) did not keep up with the evolving industry and trends like Cloud or VoIP.
It was ultimately broken apart and sold in pieces to different companies. The carrier aspect went to Genband, wireless to Ericsson, metro Ethernet to Ciena, and telephony to Avaya who will only support Nortel customers for so long.
With the Nortel brand and BCM 50 essentially gone, their customers are facing a crossroads and must begin making decisions about their future. The world of telephony is overwhelming and many are unsure which direction to move.
So how do we move on from Nortel? Read about your options in our next post How to Move On From Nortel.
