Get yourself a USB - Serial adapter.  They are readily available from almost any computer supply shop.

I believe the ERS 3500 and 4800 series switches now use a standard RJ-45 console port identical to the Cisco pinout. So all you need is a standard Cisco rollover cable and your set. Obviously you'll need a serial port on your laptop or a terminal server to facilitate the connection. If you are desperate and without a serial port I believe those new switches come with a default IP address for management in the default (VLAN 1) VLAN.

Good Luck!

according to the documentation the ERS3500 will boot with a default IP of 192.168.1.1/24 for VLan 1

But as recommended above, get yourself a USB to RS232 DB9 adapter and a good old blue cisco cable. It will work fine with ERS3500 and ERS4800 and VSP7000. Avaya will sell you an Avaya RJ47 console cable, but save yourself $15-$30.

For the rest of the Nortel/Avaya kit you will need a Female/Female DB9 straight through cable.
