BNR and Nortel

I worked at Bell-Northern Research (BNR) and Nortel from 1987 to 2002 in roles of increasing responsibility, spanning a wide range of technologies including: international communications standards (T1, IEEE, Bellcore, CCITT, ISO), ISDN, cellular networks (AMPS/TDMA/GSM), optical networking (SONET), multi-service data networking (FR/ATM/IP), IP/MPLS networking and more.

Memorabilia from the BNR/Nortel days is collected below.   Feel free to send any other good memorabilia items you might have to me at – brianrhurley at!

  1. Used to do a ton of biz with Nortel DMS10 and 100. Last time I was there in early 2001-2002, it was a ghost town.
