Toshiba Upgrades IP Telephony for SMBs

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Toshiba has significantly upgraded its IPedge family of IP business telephone systems for small to medium-sized businesses.

Release 1.5 from Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division, includes several features such as voicemail survivability via direct cluster networking, integrated gateway wizards and IPMobility mobile client.

The latest upgrades are designed for Toshiba's IPedge EM, IPedge EC and IPedge EP models.

“Now with IPMobility, IPedge empowers SMBs and multi-site enterprises with the smartphone features they need to communicate more efficiently, cost effectively and reliably,” said Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division.

Businesses want to have a single number to reach Apple and Android smartphone devices for both incoming and outgoing calls, and Toshiba's IPMobility client application for IPedge does just that.

IPMobility provides single number reach to Apple and Android smartphone devices and this means users only have to provide their office telephone numbers to receive incoming calls.

IPMobility dials through the IPedge to provide least cost routing for long distance and international calls for outgoing calls.

Compatible with most Apple and Android platform mobile devices, Toshiba's IPMobility also provides visual voicemail to remotely manage and control IPedge Messaging voice mailboxes.

“Now faster and easier to install, set-up, and use, IPedge Release 1.5 gives companies a robust IP telephone solution that is backed by Toshiba's best-in-class reliability,” added Metherell.

Toshiba was in news earlier this year for launching ultra-low power consumption Photorelay. This high voltage and high current product is meant for use in semiconductor testers and measuring devices.
