Hi umair,

first of all "Nortel" times are over since 2009 and I guess you'll have to deal with "AVAYA" instead.  ;)

Anyway I guess you have to buy an support contract to get your software from AVAYA.

You'll find all stuff here:

Ethernet Routing Switch 3500 series v5.3.3

Ethernet Routing Switch 5000 series v6.3.6

ERS 5000 Series Diagnostic Image:

ERS 5000 Series Secure Runtime Image Software

Good luck

And, I would suggest you get the support contract soon! Avaya recently announced in the future, even with a support contract, older versions of code will no longer be available on their website.  A 5520 on 4.2.X code has a ton of steps to go to get to the latest version of code, and force-feeding the latest version will not work on that chassis.  You have to have access to ALL the below versions of code to get the unit upgraded!

5500 4.X --> -->50004 Diags/no reboot --> -->> 60008 Diags without Reboot --> --> 60013 diags without reboot --> 6.2.X --> 6.3.X

Good luck!
