Visual & Audible Alerting Interface for Nortel IP Phones 2002 and 2004 with CS 1000

By: Algo Communication Products  09-12-2011

The 8001 IP Alerter is an add-on device that allows external visual or audible alerters (purchased separately) to be used with Nortel’s IP 2002 and 2004 telephones with a Communication Server 1000 (CS 1000).

Typical applications include ring notification in noisy or noise-sensitive environments such as factories, warehouses, hospital nurseries and recording studios. Other applications include use in emergency service environments where telephone answering and quick response are critical (e.g. fire, ambulance, and police).

Key Features

  • Monitors IP telephone for Ring and In-Use at the telephone location
  • May be connected downstream of one or more Key Expansion Modules
  • Powered by telephone

Requirements and Compatibility

  • Requires Nortel Communication Server 1000 (CS 1000) Release 4.0 and later
  • IP 2002 or 2004 telephone

Example Setup

Step 1

Connect the IP Alerter into the back of the telephone.

Step 2

Plug one or two alerter devices (i.e. lights or loud ringer) into the IP Alerter’s Ring or In-Use ports.

Step 3

Within CS 1000, configure the IP Alerter (which appears to the system just as a Key Expansion Module would) by setting Key 0 of the Alerter (the “KEM”) in System Programming as an appearance of the line to be monitored.
Once set, telephone alerting is activated.
