Toshiba provides a clear and affordable migration path to help customers retain their investment while moving to a new, feature-rich telecommunication solution. And it just became easier. Toshiba recently added IPedgeApplication Servers & cards to the Strata CIX business telephone systems, bringing the full suite of IPedge (VoIP) Phone System offerings, including unified messaging, mobility, unified communications, and meeting collaboration applications to Strata CIX users.
Q & A:
What Toshiba VoIP features are available if I upgrade my voicemail?
- Unified Messaging- Voicemail & Fax to your E-mail, delivers voice mail and unified messaging to the user’s email inbox.
- IPMobility Smartphone App, which provides single-number reach to Apple® and Android™ smartphone devices, enabling them to act as an extension of the IPedge and/or Strata CIX IP business telephone systems for both incoming and outgoing calls. Users need only to provide their office telephone numbers to receive incoming calls and display their office Caller ID for outgoing calls. In addition, IPMobility provides visual voicemail to remotely manage and control Strata CIX Messaging voice mailboxes.
- Call Manager w/ Softphone + Chat, which empowers the user’s PC with call control on the Strata CIX so the user can make calls from an existing Contacts list, see phone presence information, text chat with colleagues, and make or receive calls via the integrated softphone.
- Web & Video Meetings, making conference calls more effective by providing an audio conference bridge with Outlook® Calendar invite support and allowing users to share their desktops and video, all within a standards-based Web browser.
Who is eligible for this migration strategy?
What happens if we want to move to a full VoIP phone system in the future?
Strata CIX users that upgrade their Voicemail server or card are one step closer to moving to a full IP solution (ex- Toshiba’s IPedge or VIPedge Hosted/Cloud System) in the future. This budget-friendly migration strategy allows users to slowly move to full IP at their own pace. Users with Toshiba digital telephones will need to purchase Toshiba IP telephones when moving to a full IP system.
