Toshiba Unveils Cloud-based VIPedge Application Service
Unified communications systems have traditionally been the communication playgrounds for large corporations. Because of the cost involved, many small and medium sized businesses do not venture into testing the benefits of unified communications for their organization.
But all that may be changing with the introduction of new, affordable technologies. One such company, Toshiba (News - Alert) America Information Systems, Inc., has announced its new VIPedge® Application Service. This service enables the users of Toshiba's Strata® CIX and CTX business telephone systems to get advanced Unified Communications (News - Alert), Mobility and Unified Messaging applications at an affordable rate.
An attractive aspect of this service is that it involves very minimal or capital expenditure. It is available on subscription basis from Authorized Toshiba Dealers. Toshiba's Strata CIX and CTX customers will find this application more affordable, as Toshiba is delivering the application through the cloud. This also means they can use the application on their current technology, without the hassles associated with moving to a new technology.
“Toshiba's VIPedge Application Service delivers today's most in-demand communications solutions to users of Toshiba's Strata CIX and CTX systems via the cloud, with minimal or no capital costs," said Brian Metherell (News - Alert), vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division. “Toshiba's VIPedge Application Service delivers consistent features in a multi-site network for distributed Toshiba business phone systems, regardless if they are on-premises systems, such as Toshiba's Strata CIX/CTX, or Toshiba's cloud-based VIPedge solution”
Toshiba’s telephony systems have won numerous awards. Recently, TMC (News - Alert) named the company's IPedge® business telephone system a winner of the 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
