Continuing operation of legacy telephone systems and hardware

Nortel legacy telephone systems are still a reliable choice for large-scale organisations.

As business communications providers move towards cloud-based solutions, there has been a decline in the uptake of traditional telephony such as PBX hardware. However, moving to cloud-based solutions – Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Unified Communications (UC) – is easier for small to medium sized businesses than it is for larger enterprises. Taking into account scalability and an internal IT infrastructure, plus a large number of voice channels, the move to cloud-based solutions can be more complicated when on a larger scale.

Any organisation still operating a legacy telephone system should not feel they have to change or upgrade to something new. Many companies continue to operate PBX telecoms hardware, long after the discontinuation of their equipment by the manufacturer. MF Communications recognises this and as such has been supplying remanufactured legacy telecoms equipment for over 15 years, specialising in business phones, PBX systems and hardware made by major manufacturers, including Siemens Unify, Ericsson, Aastra, Avaya, Mitel, Alcatel-Lucent and Nortel.

Fully remanufacturing and restoring the hardware to as-new condition, MF Communications provides high quality, manufacturer guaranteed telephones, PBX systems and all associated hardware to companies still operating legacy telephone systems.

Cloud hosting is a long-term solution.

Companies like Avaya Nortel are making it possible for large enterprises to continue operating existing telephony hardware, whilst working with them to implement solutions for cloud-based technology. Traditional PBX systems have been around for a long time and have proven a reliable and effective form of communication for medium to large enterprises. Many companies choose to continue maintaining their PBX rather than venturing into the unknown by changing or upgrading to a cloud-based solution.

Avaya Nortel recognises larger enterprises still find the benefit of hardware over software. Its legacy equipment includes the Nortel brand, which was a firm favourite amongst PBX users due to its reliability.

The demand for Nortel equipment still exists and as an example of this popularity, MF Communications recently supplied Nortel legacy hardware to the value of $160,000 to a vendor in the Middle East, where demand for manufacturer-discontinued legacy telecoms equipment continues.
