There is no one left that can technically sustain and support Nortel
products. Also all the Designers are laid off and outsourced to
inexperienced people in Turkey and India.
Go Cisco, Avaya or whatever.
Not to mention Chapter 7 is coming soon.

The company I work for has a state contract. MANY  Nortel systems being
installed. Had a very strange problem with a BCM50. I  went through the
India Turkey route, my boss made one call,  then the head of tech support
in Ottawa. They came up with the answer and now Verizon gets the shit.

I doubt that Canada will let one of their largest, if not the largest,
company fail.

Re: Do Not Use Nortel Equipment
Plainly you have been misinformed or you have no idea what you are talking
about.

Or you are too much of a cheapskate to pay for support.

1)  On the phone with Nortel support yesterday.  Plenty of people good
people to address CS 1000,  VoIP, and Contact Center issues.
2)  Local vendor is also continuing ahead with Nortel customer support
3)  New versions of Nortel software and hardware are coming out.
4) Nortel is ensuring support by obtaining even more components for support
stock in the future.
5) Chapter 11 does not equate to Chapter 7 soon.


Have a nice day sourpuss

Re: Do Not Use Nortel Equipment
I had to speak to Nortel support this morning (Canada time), had no
problems getting an engineer who helped fix my fault.  And I'm in
Australia.
The chap was quite personable, so I thought I would be a little bold
and ask him his thoughts on the whole Nortel & creditor protection
thing.
He tells me there has been no issues with pay packets in his office,
and in general morale has not dropped.  There are a few nervouse upper
level management types, but mostly people either couldn't care less,
or they are welcoming the restructure.

So maybe keep your misinformed opinions & shit-scared conspiracy
theories to yourself.

P.S. Don't ever mention Cisco and Nortel in the same sentence unles
you are talking about Cisco Data Networks.

What do you mean "soon"?   In fact, they filed days before your first
post about "bankruptcy was coming"

He specifically said "Chapter 7," or company liquidation, was coming soon.

Apparantly, this "GaryRock" is not the only one who is trying to worry
Nortel users. At least one of Nortel's competitors is offering generous
trade-in credits to get companies to switch.

I would suspect that if Nortel does go into liquidation, someone will pick
up the pieces and support the existing equipment.

Re: Impact of Nortel Bankruptcy on product support (was Re: Do Not Use Nortel Equipment)
I'm sure that someone will try to "pick up the pieces". However 100% of
Nortel equipment is manufactuered by other suppliers. If Nortel Banckrupts,
they are under no obligation to provide equipment.
You will see in the coming months how many Big Customers are bailing on
NOrtel.
I assure you I have nothing to gain here.

OK.  Fortunately, your posts, complete with 3th grade grammar and
spelling, are eternally etched on the Internet.  Maybe we'll all look
back and say you were right.  Or maybe we'll all look back and say
"Well we had to take into consideration his mental state at the time"

Actually they filed for Bankruptcy protection. Bankruptcy is next and then
all bets are off.
Thanks

Re: Do Not Use Nortel Equipment

You're trolling for pain Rock.

But all you have managed to get is laughter coming right at you.

Ha!  Ha!    Ha!  I only wish comedians were as entertaining.

Thanks for the laugh.

The only ones trying to get customers to drink the kool-aid is Crisco.
Besides, if Nortel goes belly up, Crisco won't be far behind. With
Nortel out of the way better and less expensive companies like Juniper
will be able to capitalize on the space. Cisco can't keep up with
either Nortel or Juniper technologies so they have to spread lies to
get you to believe they are the only player in the market. Personally,
I would choose Adtran over Cisco just to keep them from getting my
business.

Why would anyone stop using Nortel equipment due to the chapter 11
issues, there is a huge network of Nortel support right across the
range of products. We at Lynx UK carry approx 30,000 refurbished and
new parts for central office wirleline, optical and data products, we
have also have some of the best engineering support for DMS, sucession
and Optera outside of the Nortel organisation.

Given the current financial climate, the network operators and
business end users would need to divert much needed cash resources to
replace existing systems unnecessarily.

Should the worst happen and Nortel do not come out of this process
well then the network of Nortel resellers and Grey market equipment
stockist can pick up the end user needs for years to come.

I guess I missed it. Did you ever offer a fact or is this all about you're
personal problems?
