I'm sure that someone will recognize this, but I don't think it's a 
from a telco CO.  This looks more like a triple-redundant setup for 
some sort of mission-critical application (nuclear reactor control?). 
The indicator lamps labeled "SURVIVOR" and "BACKUP" as well as 
"EXCHANGE FILL" would seem to bear this out as well as the alarm 

Incandescent lamps instead of LEDs would probably put this in the 
1960s-early 70s, maybe?
