I'm surprised that there are no recognisable manufacturer names on any of it
though if it were from one of the bigger companies. Of course the number of
remembered systems from the 60s and 70s is probably a very small fraction of
the total machines produced...
The panels do hint at something reasonably complex, though - so possibly power

Certainly in the UK telcos were pretty "backward"  (in computing terms)
around that time - I get the impression that things in the US were similar. In
other words, telco seems unlikely (possibly someone just saw the word
"exchange" and made assumptions? :)

nothing wrong with *not* using a computer for something :-)
