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.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
