If you looked inside that panel, you will probably find both cable and phone wiring. That sounds like the structured wiring panel for your condo. The question is, is there enough space for a phone modem and is there a plug to provide power to the modem. That is something that the tech will have to determine. In a worst case scenario, the phone modem itself can go anywhere that has a cable port on a wallplate and a nearby power source.
If there is space and power, I imagine that the tech will park the modem inside the panel. That is where my Home Phone modem has been for the last 10 years or so. And .... you plug your phone into the phone jack, no hassle, no mess. But, it all depends on what the tech determines when he or she opens the panel. No guarantees on that one.
I may need to buy a new phone. Will any phone (wireless or landline) have access to the Rogers answering service?
Thank you. That’s what I’m looking for. To get a model that flashes a signal when there is a message waiting, do I have to purchase one with an answering machine built in?

If you're going to be using Rogers voicemail, you don't need an answering machine. I also use Panasonic Cordless phones and recommend them. Make sure it has the features you want and it should flash the "message waiting" light when there is a message on Rogers Voicemail. On mine I also get an indication on the LCD display regarding a missed call and/or voicemail
