Toshiba unveils IPedge EP Pure IP Business Telephone System


Toshiba announced the launch of IPedge EP, an IP business
telephone system designed for small businesses with up to 40 users per server.


The newest addition to Toshiba’s recently introduced IPedge family of pure
IP business telephone system, IPedge
EP gives small businesses with less than 40 users the features, functionality,
quality and reliability for which Toshiba’s telephone systems are known.


“With Toshiba’s IPedge
EP single server solution, small businesses can empower their users to
communicate more effectively, be more cost effective, and have greater access
to their customers, partners and each other,” said Brian Metherell, vice
president and general manager of Toshiba.


EP accommodates multiple unified communication applications on a single Linux
server, including call processing, voicemail and unified messaging, native SIP
line and SIP trunk support, mobility, survivability, networking with other IPedge or Strata CIX
systems, and feature-rich telephone endpoints.


Add-on applications, including meet-me conferencing with
Web collaboration, uMobility Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) and Contact Center
solutions, are available with additional servers.


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


Toshiba’s Call Manager application with Unified
Communications, which enables users to combine the capabilities of their
computers and their Toshiba telephones into powerful communication tools.


Users can click on their laptop or tablet PCs to dial,
answer, transfer calls and much more, without touching their telephones. Call
Manager features include Presence, Chat, Instant Messaging, and CRM integration
with programs including, Act!, and Microsoft Outlook.

Centralized multi-site management through the Enterprise
Manager, allowing the IPedge
EP to be a member node of an enterprise system in which an IPedge EC or EM server is

Personal telephone browser-based administration is
allowing individual users to manage their own telephones, including programming
buttons and personalizing telephone functions. This application liberates
system administrators from such tasks;
