IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division (Toshiba -- www.telecom.toshiba.com), today announced that it has increased the capacity of the EP model of its IPedge® Application Server to 24 ports, up from 8 ports. Adding IPedge Application Server to the Strata® CIX™ IP business telephone systems brings the full suite of IPedge offerings, including unified messaging, mobility, unified communications, and meeting collaboration applications, to Strata CIX users.
"In response to user and dealer demand, we have expanded the capacity of our IPedge EP Application Server to help Strata CIX and Strata CTX users take advantage of the many IPedge applications now available to them on the current platforms," said Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division. "By making IPedge available as an application server to Strata CIX and Strata CTX users, we at Toshiba are bringing the latest IP unified communications and mobility solutions to our legacy users at a very affordable price. It also focuses and streamlines the same application server portfolio across our Strata CIX, IPedge, and VIPedge™ product lines for our Authorized Toshiba Dealers."
Using IPedge as an application server gives users of Strata CIX and Strata CTX systems all the application benefits of the IPedge without entirely moving to IP, an affordable solution that lets them mix-and-match digital and IP endpoints as necessary for their businesses.
Applications include IPedge Unified Messaging, IPMobility for mobility and single-number reach, IPedge Call Manager™ for unified communications, and IPedge Meeting for audio, Web, and video collaboration. Users of Toshiba's legacy Strata CTX digital business telephone systems can also upgrade to Strata CIX and add IPedge as an application server to enable these advanced solutions.
Using IPedge as an application server, users can take advantage of the following optional Toshiba applications:
- IPedge Unified Messaging, which delivers voice mail and unified messaging to the user's email inbox.
- IPMobility, which provides single-number reach to Apple® and Android™ smartphone devices, enabling them to act as an extension of the IPedge and/or Strata CIX IP business telephone systems for both incoming and outgoing calls. Users need only to provide their office telephone numbers to receive incoming calls and display their office Caller ID for outgoing calls. In addition, IPMobility provides visual voice mail to remotely manage and control Strata CIX Messaging voice mailboxes.
- IPedge Call Manager, which empowers the user's PC with call control on the Strata CIX so the user can make calls from an existing Contacts list, see phone presence information, text chat with colleagues, and make or receive calls via the integrated soft phone.
- IPedge Meeting, making conference calls more effective by providing an audio conference bridge with Outlook® Calendar invite support and allowing users to share their desktops and video, all within a standards-based Web browser.
IPedge Application Server is compatible with all the Strata CIX models: Strata CIX 40 (4-11 trunks or 8-40 telephones); Strata CIX 100 (up to 112 trunks and telephones); Strata CIX 200 (up to 192 trunks and telephones); Strata CIX 670 (up to 672 trunks and telephones); and Strata CIX 1200 (up to 1,152 trunks and telephones) models. It is also compatible with Toshiba's legacy Strata CTX systems when the processor and software are upgraded to Strata CIX.
Now available in three system sizes: the IPedge EP Application Server (up to 40 users), IPedge EC Application Server (up to 200 users), and IPedge EM Application Server (up to 800 users). Please see Toshiba documentation for the specific application capacities on each server.
