The fact Nortel phone system owners do not have to throw out their investment and start over is a huge win for our clients.

Telephone Magic Inc. is now providing businesses that own either a legacy Nortel or current Avaya BCM or Communication Serverhope for an IP future with the i2000 IP phone series. Originally released by Nortel and subsequently further produced and supported by Avaya as their 2000 Series IP telephones, these desk phones are now a lifeline to small, medium and enterprise sized businesses that previously invested in a Nortel telephone system. The once venerable telecom giant introduced millions of business users to stable IP telephony and many of them are doing their best to maximize their investment.

Telephone Magic is now utilizing the Nortel Avaya 2000 IP phones series to allow owners of Avaya Nortel BCM 50/450, and the legacy Nortel BCM 200 / BCM 400, that support IP capabilities to add robust IP phones to their telephony network. 2000 IP telephones are also supported by versions of the Nortel / Avaya Communication Server 1000 / 2000 / 2100 and encompass a sleek, cutting-edge, ergonomic design with delivery of innovative capabilities.

Telephone Magic has long been a leading online distributor of Nortel phone system products. It now provides additional and replacement Nortel IP phones, BCM Media Bay Modules, BCM Key Code licenses, and expansion equipment. A massive worldwide base of former Nortel IP customers remains, along with new clients of the Avaya BCM and Avaya Communication Server.

Jeff Jackson, president of Telephone Magic, reflects "Avaya took over the Nortel platforms in 2009, including the BCM and Communications Server systems. For a few years Avaya continued to sell the BCM and Communication Server. The Nortel i2000 Series IP phones were also retained by Avaya. New Avaya 2000 series IP phones are available with the strength of Nortel's substantial networking technology. Re-manufactured Nortel i2000 series IP telephones are a cost-effective alternative to new VoIP phones. The fact Nortel phone system owners do not have to throw out their investment and start over is a huge win for our clients."

The Avaya Nortel 2007 IP phone incorporates a 5.7” color touch-screen, bringing multimedia presentation support to the desktop IP phone. Virtual Network Computing technology optimizes content pushed from external application servers in advanced text or graphical format. The "standard" display output is the usual business telephone functions such as phone directory, auto-dial, message retrieval and more. The "Applications" softkey also allows users to access other functions (if provided by the phone system) for such things as directions and road maps, company news, weather and even see who is at the front door by using the phone as the monitor for a security camera.

It's a very solid IP series that leverages Nortel's history of networking expertise without requiring a business to toss aside their phone system and invest in a whole new platform."
