EarthLink Holding Corp. has recently announced that it has successfully completed the interoperability certification test of its Complete Voice SIP Trunking services with Toshiba's IPedge business telephone systems.

The certification of Toshiba's IPedge with EarthLink's SIP Trunking services offers enterprises the interoperability of Toshiba's feature-rich IPedge IP business telephone system with a superior, enhanced SIP trunking solution. 

EarthLink’s SIP Trunking has been an ideal solution for many enterprises to simplify their network by using data lines to pass voice and data traffic while still using their existing Cisco, Avaya, NEC or Mitel equipment. All traffic from multiple locations tap into a central site with a SIP trunk and this facility cuts the need for dedicated voice connections at each business location, giving significant costs savings. Plus, calls between locations are free with converged minutes on a new nationwide voice product.

The Toshiba IPedge holds the capacity to integrate multiple communication applications on one optimized server platform. Standard applications include call processing, voicemail, and centralized system administration. Optional applications include unified messaging, meet-me audio and video conferencing with web collaboration, and a Call Manager unified communications client application.

This new certification allows users of Toshiba's IPedge business telephone systems to utilize EarthLink's Complete Voice SIP Trunking as their SIP service provider.

"By earning the latest Toshiba certifications, EarthLink continues to keep pace with noteworthy releases that benefit customers by providing maximum flexibility in their choice of voice solutions," said Thomas Hobika, Senior Vice President of IT Services.
