CPC Customer Presentation Centre

The Customer Presentation Centre  featured installed Nortel kit.  Basically the “Run Nortel on Nortel” concept.

It was built where the old Cash Office and Employee Shop had been through the 70’s, using the split level to good effect.

Built around 1996, for the first months of operation the sound of the Top Gun movie could be heard during Customer visits. The demonstration was to have the movie running across the network, then disconnect the main fibre optic and see no break in the movie sound as the network automatically discovered the resilient route. Quite the favourite for Leslie Orr who ran the Customer centre.

There were many visits to this centre, maybe you remember some specifically. Or times when you came through the Meeting room doors, saw some unexpected visitors and realised this was the last place you wanted to be.
