IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division (Toshiba -- www.telecom.toshiba.com) today announced today that its IPedge® Application Server has been named a winner of a 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award by TMC, a global, integrated media company. The winners of the 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award are featured in the January/February 2014 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and online at www.itmag.com.
"We are honored to receive the 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award for our IPedge Application Server," said Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division. "Toshiba's IPedge Application Server gives users of Toshiba's legacy Strata® CIX and Strata CTX business telephone systems affordable access to the latest IP unified communications and mobility solutions without needing to move to a new system."
"It gives me great pleasure to recognize Toshiba with a 2014 Product of the Year Award for its commitment to excellence and innovation," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "In the opinion of our distinguished judges, Toshiba's IPedge Application Server has proven to be among the best communications and technology solutions on the market in 2014."
Toshiba's IPedge Application Server gives users of Strata CIX and Strata CTX systems the application benefits of the IPedge without entirely moving to IP. IPedge Application Server brings the full suite of IPedge applications to Strata CIX and Strata CTX users, including 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.
Using IPedge as an application server, users can take advantage of the following 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, which makes 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.
- Find Me, Follow Me Call Routing, which forwards incoming calls to any telephone number the user chooses, including mobile phones. Easy to turn on and off, "Find-me Follow-me" enables users to set up automatic forwarding of incoming calls on their office extensions directly to their smartphones (or any other telephone number). The incoming caller's Caller ID is visible on the smartphone. Also standard with all Toshiba telephone systems is Twinning, which enables the simultaneous ringing of both the user's office phone and smart phone.
Toshiba's IPedge Application Server is 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 1,000 users).
IPedge Application Server enables users to have a smooth migration path from their existing Strata CTX or Strata CIX systems.
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.
