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.

Interested can avail EarthLink Complete Voice SIP Trunking services from Authorized Toshiba Dealers nationwide. Since 2013, EarthLink has been supporting SIP trunk configurations utilizing the Toshiba IPedge IP business telephone system.

“Authorized Toshiba Dealers can now offer their Toshiba IPedge customers EarthLink's cost-effective, simple-to–deploy, and easily managed SIP trunking service as part of their enterprise telephony systems," said Mark Carpenter, Vice President of Technology and Product Management for Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division.
