Documentation for Nortel is readily available from sources on the Web. Search Nortel. $50-$75 for the docs, mailed, not downloaded.

Be aware, though, that the number scheme may not make sense at first. If time is valuable, you might need to hire a tech to install it.

The good news is that Nortel is hard to damage by miswiring.

on a compact ics the co lines feature as follows
line 1 W/Bl and Bl/W
line 2 WO/ and O/W

line 3 W/sl and SL/W
line 4 R/Bl and Bl/R       So it goes 2 and skips 2 for a total of 8 lines.

The station side feastures out on the 4.0
port 101
port 102
port 103- thru port 116 for a standard config.

I am trying to install the same system and am wondering what you terminate to for the stations? Example: sta 1 = wblue/blue pins 4,5.
Any help would be much appreciated!

... Nortel uses the simplest possible termination: the single pair per station is terminated on the primary pair position of the jack you are using.

For an 8-pin jack, the primary pair position is, as you say, pins 4&5. For USOC jacks (4 or 6 pin), the primary position is the center pair of pins.

Likewise, the CAP module lays down on the secondary pair positions.
