Toshiba's IPedge Application Server Wins 2014 Communications Solution Product of the Year Award

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/24/14 -- Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division (Toshiba -- www.telecom.toshiba.com) today announced that its IPedge® Application Server has won a 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award from TMC, a global, integrated media company.

"We are pleased to award Toshiba's IPedge Application Server with a 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award. The IPedge Application Server has demonstrated true innovation and is amongst the best solutions that facilitate voice, data and video communications brought to market in the past twelve months," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.

"We are honored to receive the 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year award for our IPedge Application Server," said Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division. "Toshiba's IPedge Application Server gives users of legacy Strata® CIX™/CTX systems the application benefits of the IPedge without requiring them to entirely move to IP. It delivers an affordable solution that lets users mix-and-match digital and IP endpoints as needed for their businesses."

Using Toshiba's IPedge Application Server, Strata CIX/CTX users can also take advantage of the following optional Toshiba IPedge applications:

  • IPedge Unified Messaging, which delivers voice mail and unified messaging to the user's email inbox.

  • IPMobility, which provides single-number reach to Apple® and Android™ smartphone devices, enabling them to act as extensions 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 voice mail to remotely manage and control Strata CIX Messaging voice mailboxes.

  • IPedge Call Manager, 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 soft phone.

  • IPedge Meeting, 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.

Toshiba's IPedge Application Server is compatible with all the Strata CIX models: Strata CIX 40 (4-11 trunks or 8-40 telephones); Strata CIX 100 (up to 112 trunks and telephones); Strata CIX 200 (up to 192 trunks and telephones); Strata CIX 670 (up to 672 trunks and telephones); and Strata CIX 1200 (up to 1,152 trunks and telephones). It is also compatible with Toshiba's legacy Strata CTX systems when the processor and software are upgraded to Strata CIX.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
