Telecom Lead America: Toshiba America Information Systems
has launched a wireless solution for enterprises featuring the Polycom
SpectraLink 8400 series of wireless telephones.
The solution is available through Toshiba’s Authorized
Dealer Network in the U.S. The business solution is compatible with Toshiba’s IPedge and Strata
CIX business telephone systems.
Working with SpectraLink 8400 wireless telephones, the
new solution will give small and medium enterprises an affordable choice for in-building
wireless communications without the need for a base station.
“Now available through Authorized Toshiba Dealers,
Toshiba’s SMB wireless business solution provides an affordable feature-rich wireless
communications solution for smaller enterprises. It provides an overall cost-competitive solution when
used with the customer’s existing VoIP- capable wireless local area network connected to IPedge
or Strata CIX business telephone systems and does not require a base station,” said
Mark Carpenter, vice president of technology and product management for Toshiba America Information
The telephones provide users with a lightweight,
simple-to-use, ergonomic handset that is tied directly into Toshiba’s enterprise telephony system to
provide high-definition voice quality for clear conversations.
“Toshiba’s SMB wireless business solution gives
SMB’s the option of wireless, in-building mobility, which helps improve productivity and
responsiveness for on-site mobile professionals across a wide range of industries, including healthcare,
retail, manufacturing and hospitality,” Carpenter added.
Benefits of the Linux server include survivability within
or across the network to support business continuity and a higher level of security. A
single IP address provides cost-effective deployment. SIP trunks work natively with the IPedge
without requiring additional gateway equipment.
With its IP technology and open standards, IPedge is
designed for the long term as future endpoint devices and applications are built on standards
to help ensure compatibility with the system, thus protecting the user’s investment.
