Nortel Investment Protection
Maximizing Your Nortel Investments
Nortel customers have made significant investments in their CS1000 voice infrastructure. But now Nortel CallPilot customers face numerous challenges, from security and compliance to transitioning to new communications technologies, cloud or premise-based.
Windows Server 2003 End of Support
Upgrading a Nortel CallPilot is no longer a matter of communications budgets, it’s a matter of security and compliance. With the 2015 End of Life announcement for Microsoft Server 2003, the backbone of Nortel CallPilot systems, support and security updates ended.
This End of Support has made maintaining compliance with a Nortel CallPilot a virtually impossibility – invalidating everything from running a Visa card (PCI), to HIPAA Privacy standards for the healthcare industry. There have been a chorus of “rip and replace” from telecom vendors, typically accompanied by the offer of a one-size-fits-all, mega bundle of communications technology.
XM Connect (formerly known as CX-E) provides the ability to implement a transformational strategy that extends, enhances, and evolves your Nortel communications platform to the latest advanced Unified Communications features and capabilities.

The End of Compliance
Replacing your Nortel CallPilot is now a matter of security and compliance. Hosted exclusively on the Microsoft Server 2003, CallPilot will NOT pass a compliance audit. Without security updates from Microsoft, both physical and virtual instances of CallPilot on Microsoft Server 2003 have become extremely vulnerable.
XM Connect runs on the latest version of Windows Server. It replaces the Nortel CallPilot, integrating smoothly with the Nortel CS1000 platform, allowing you to maximize your current telephony investment to extend the life of your existing infrastructure.
