I have the pleasure of installing a Nortelplus Phone system. Someone boxed it up and so far so good. In the pile of stuff is a Norstar FastRAD, it's about 5"x7" has a low voltage plug, a reg. phonejack plug and a 9-pin computer cable jack. I have no idea where it goes or what it does? Thanks, newline4you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not familiar with FastRad but in tagging your question, I found this description and guide:
<i>
“The Fast Remote Access Device (FastRAD) is an integral part of local and remote administration and maintenance capabilities of Nortel Norstar telephone systems. The interface hardware which is located on the customers premises. PC applications such as Norstar Remote Utilities Software use a modem to call and connect to the FastRAD at the Nortel Norstar system. Modem will support baud rates from 4800 – 14,400 for external connections and 300 – 19,200 for local or direct connections. Connects to the Nortel Norstar system using a TCM port, and answers a call on the Norstar system trunk line using its built-in modem. Has a separate power supply.”</i>
