Toshiba (News - Alert) America Information Systems Inc. reportedly introduced a new upgrade to its IPedge family of IP business telephone systems that are designed for SMBs. Some of the features that are part of the new upgrade are video addition to Toshiba’s Meeting audio conferencing and Web collaboration application, survivability of the Call Manager Unified Communications (News - Alert) applications and the Enterprise Manager System administration application. The IPedge EM, IPedge EC, IPedge EP models are slated to receive the new upgrade.
The IPedge IP Business Telephone System has multiple unified communication applications on a single Linux server which includes call processing, voicemail and unified messaging, meet-met conferencing with Web collaboration, Call Manager unified communications, native SIP line and SIP trunk support, mobility, networking with other IPedge systems and feature-rich telephone endpoints. These features ensure survivability within or across the network to support business continuity with a higher level of security. The additional servers have add-on applications like uMobility Fixed Mobile Convergence (News - Alert) and Contact Center Solutions built into it.
Toshiba Officials commented that now with built-in audio/video conferencing and Web collaboration plus survivability of the UC application, IPedge gives SMBs and multisite companies more ways to communicate efficiently, cost effectively and reliably. Even small offices now have the benefit of the built-in Meeting application on Toshiba’s IPedge EP.
The company explained that the Meeting Application provides dial-in audio/video conferencing and Web collaboration with scheduling, desktop sharing, conference recording and usage reporting. This enables users to set up and participate in conference and collaboration sessions from anywhere there is Internet access. The built-in meeting application in all the Toshiba business telephone system makes it affordable for all business sizes.
The Call manager and Enterprise Manager Database Survivability ensure continuity when there is a failure of the primary server. These applications are automatically connected to a secondary server and then reconnected back to the primary server when it becomes active again.
