Jabra stated that its USB audio devices have been certified to be interoperable with Toshiba’s SoftIPT softphone and IP5000 and DP5000 desk telephones.

Along with Toshiba’s IPedge and Strata CIX IP business telephone systems and VIPedge cloud-based business telephone solution, these hands-free audio devices from Jabra are slated to deliver a fully featured unified communications solution for contact centers, mobile and stationary users.

Pete Fox, president of Jabra North America, stated, “With this certified integration of Jabra's new audio devices and Toshiba’s business telephone systems, Jabra continues its commitment to Toshiba and its Authorized Dealer network. As Jabra expands its portfolio of audio end-point solutions, we are committed to meet the needs of the contact center and office headset markets by providing audio devices that deliver quality and functionality at cost-effective prices.”

The JABRA PRO 900 Series, JABRA PRO 9400 Series, JABRA UC VOICE Series and the JABRA LINK 850 audio processor are some of the devices that were certified to be interoperable with Toshiba’s softphone and deskphones.

Optimized for desk phone systems or Unified Communication platforms, the Jabra PRO 900 series devices are stated to be easy to deploy and they feature simple and intuitive call-control buttons which make it easy to control calls from the headset. The series includes two versions: one for desk phones (Jabra PRO 920) and one for Unified Communications and PC-based telephony (Jabra PRO 930).

The Jabra Pro 9400 is termed as a wireless headset made for highly connected offices and featuring the functionalities of telephony systems, these devices can enable employees to take calls from their mobile, softphone and desk phone all through one headset.

The Jabra UC Voice series is ideal for employees on the move and is designed specifically for Unified Communications deployments while the Jabra LINK 850 audio processor supposedly extends the value of the headset investment with features that improve productivity, lower costs and drive performance throughout the business.

Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division, added, “Jabra’s innovative and high-quality hands-free audio solutions for telephony users give headset solutions to users of Toshiba’s business telephone systems, whether they are contact center agents, mobile workers, or stationary users. With this strategic alliance, Authorized Toshiba Dealers can deliver a wide range of Jabra headsets to their end-user customers.”
