Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division has been selected by TMC (News - Alert) to win a 2015 Cloud Computing Product of the Year Award, as presented by Cloud Computing magazine, for the VIPedge Application Service. This win is a validation of Toshiba’s (News - Alert) efforts with VIPedge as it honors vendors with the most innovative, useful and beneficial cloud products and services that have been brought to market within the last year.
“We are honored to receive the 2015 Cloud Computing Product of the Year Award for Toshiba’s VIPedge Application Service, which brings advanced VIPedge features to users of Toshiba’s Strata CIX and CTX systems,” said Brian Metherell (News - Alert), vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division.
Toshiba’s VIPedge Application Service makes available the Toshiba I-VoIP SIP Service and advanced cloud-based applications—including unified communications (UC), mobility and unified messaging applications—to users of the Strata CIX and legacy CTX business telephone systems as a subscription service. Additionally, VIPedge Application Service delivers consistent features in a multi-site network for distributed Toshiba business phone systems. This is true if those phone systems are on-site, as with Strata CTX, or with Toshiba’s cloud-based VIPedge solution.
Also included with the VIPedge Application Service is Toshiba’s I-VoIP SIP Service, enabling users to use SIP trunks for their telephone service, or just as a supplement to their existing service. This includes Direct-Inward-Dialing (DID) numbers, supporting as many users as is required while enabling them to take full advantage of UC applications.
Perhaps most importantly, VIPedge Application Service allows organizations to budget communications as a monthly operating expense, rather than an upfront expense. With low per-user pricing, applications are delivered via the cloud, allowing Strata CIX and CTX customers to stay up-to-date with current communications technology, without having to switch to an all-new platform.
“TMC is proud to recognize Toshiba’s VIPedge Application Service as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani (News - Alert), CEO of TMC. “Toshiba is being honored for its achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to the market while leveraging the latest technology trends.”
