Toshiba Addresses Mobility with Stratagy View and New DECT Telephone

By Sandra M. Gustavsen, Analyst, Business VoIP


Takeaway: Toshiba (News - Alert) is rolling out a number of new solutions for mobile workers, introducing a Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) solution from Varaha Systems last month (see the TelecomTactics Insider May 2009 issue), and now, two additional options: Stratagy View Web-based messaging and a DECT (News - Alert) cordless phone. Stratagy View Web-based unified messaging targets employees on-the-go and makes it easy to access and manage voice and fax messages with or without accessing an e-mail inbox first. Stratagy View is a “no charge option” with the purchase of Toshiba’s Stratagy ES Unified Messaging seats. Toshiba also announces its first DECT cordless telephone, the DKT2404, an OEM phone branded by Toshiba. The mobility options are compatible with Toshiba’s complete line of Strata CIX VoIP systems designed for small, mid-size or larger businesses with multiple sites.

Toshiba (News - Alert) America Information Systems Inc.’s Telecommunication Systems Division recently unveiled Stratagy View, a new Web-based unified messaging solution for the Toshiba Strata CIX IP communication systems.


With Stratagy View, Toshiba customers use an Internet browser to access voice and fax messages stored in a voice mailbox – a benefit to employees who are away from the office and need to stay in touch.
 
The Strategy View Web server communicates with a Toshiba Stratagy ES voicemail system and the user’s e-mail service. Stratagy View sends the user an e-mail when a new voice or fax message arrives in the user’s voice mailbox. This e-mail alert message contains a link to a Web page where users can view a Message List that contains all voice and fax messages (with sender information and duration).

Alternatively, without accessing the e-mail inbox, the user can simply type in the URL address of the Stratagy View Web server and enter their voice mailbox log on credentials to reach the Message List screen. Voice and fax messages can be sorted, viewed (fax) or listened to (voice), forwarded, deleted or saved. The user can also access and manage an Address Book (system and personal) and record new voice messages.

Available now, Stratagy View is compatible with all Strata CIX systems, including CIX40, CIX100, CIX200, CIX670 and CIX1200 and Stratagy ES messaging servers (ES48, ES96, Strata MAS or iES16 card option), as well as Microsoft (News - Alert) Internet Explorer V6 or higher, Macintosh Safari and Mozilla Firefox for Windows and Macintosh. Stratagy View is a “no charge option” with the purchase of Stratagy ES Unified Messaging seats.

Also new is the company’s first DECT cordless phone (an OEM phone branded by Toshiba). DECT technology (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) is an ETSI (News - Alert) standard (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) and a mature technology that is specifically designed to handle large number of users and which guarantees a high quality of voice transmission. The Toshiba DKT2404-DECT (News - Alert) operates up to 1,000 feet in open areas (using six repeaters per base station) and supports 16 hours of battery talk time and seven days standby time. Toshiba users can use the DECT handset to access telephony features on the associated Strata CIX VoIP system, while away from their desk telephone.

These new mobility options add to several other options already available from Toshiba, including the company’s SoftIPT softphone that runs on a wired or wireless laptop or PC or PDA, Polycom SpectraLink wireless phones and the Symbol (Motorola) MC50 Enterprise Digital Assistant. A Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) solution from Varaha Systems (News - Alert) is also an option and lets mobile employees use a smartphone as their business telephone; calls are automatically handed off between a cellular network and the corporate WiFi (News - Alert) network (single number reach and lower cellular costs).
