Three Ways To Add Cordless To Your Old Nortel Phone System

Nortel Phone Systems were prolific 20 years ago.  Here in Alberta practically all offices used them.  They're still very common and today people want cordless phone options.

Here are three ways to go cordless with your old Nortel phone system.

1) Use the Nortel cordless phone designed for the system.  This is the T7406.  We don't recommend this option as it has bad review.  People that use this phone, don't like it.   Primarily because wireless technology has changed in the last 20 years an this is old technology with bad reception and poor battery life.

2)  Use a Nortel ATA with a current generation Analog cordless phone.  The standard analog cordless phone can be bought at Staples, Bestbuy or any other store.  All cordless phones now use DECT 6.0 technology which is wireless and gives good range and better battery life.

3)  Use a Plantronics or Jabra headset with your Nortel desk phone.  There is a headset jack on the back of your Nortel phone. Simply plug in a commercial headset and handset lifter into your current Nortel desk phone and enjoy hands free working.

Demonstrating the Paxton Access Net2 Video Entry for Building Security

Video Building Security allows employees to enter a building with their FOB by holding it to the door.  Visitors simply dial a unit and have their identity confirmed with a video call before remotely releasing the door.

The Paxton Access Net2 Entry system also controls elevators so floor security can be ensured and only the proper floors related to the authorization are granted.

All access has a audit trail so that entry can be reviewed at a later date.  Entry can be immediated denied by cancelling access to any FOB given to an individual employee or resident.

This integrates with 3CX Phone System or other SIP based phone system to provide the video call or by using video monitors from Paxton.

How To Terminate Idle Remote Desktop RDP Sessions

how-to-terminate-idle-rdp-sessions-in-windows-server-keyframeWhen RDP Sessions are all in use,  additional users cannot connect. In this video I'll show you how to automatically log off idle sessions.

Windows Servers have traditionally come with two Remote Desktop RDP Administrator licenses so that administrators can access the server.   

Additional Remote Desktop (RDP) CALs (Client Access Licenses) can be added to Windows Server installations but  come at a cost.  They are more than $160 CAD for the RDP CAL and additionally a User CAL (+$50 CAD) is required.   

When users leave their sessions open and idle, those licenses cannot be used by other users.  Automatically terminating idle sessions will help you use your licenses more effectively.

HELIA does install configure and support Windows services for business.  To learn more about Windows servers and why they are important for your business, or to find out how how to add licenses to your Windows Server,  contact us at or visit us at
