Toshiba's New Call Manager Mobile Empowers Users to Access the VIPedge Cloud-Based Business Telephone Solution on Their Android Mobile Phones
IRVINE, CA, Feb 06, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems
Division (Toshiba -- www.telecom.toshiba.com), today announced Call
Manager Mobile for Android(TM), a new mobile application for
Toshiba's VIPedge(TM) cloud-based business telephone solution. Now
with Call Manager Mobile, users are empowered to take their office
calls and instant messages on their Android mobile phones just as if
they were at their desks.
"Toshiba is devoted to delivering the mobility requested by its
Authorized Toshiba Dealers and end-user customers, including some of
the largest corporations in America. Toshiba's new UC platform
architecture enables Toshiba to rapidly deploy on multiple OS
platforms and integrate Toshiba's other Web-based applications and
utilities within a single interface," said Brian Metherell, vice
president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems
Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division. "Simply put, we empower our
customers to communicate where, when, how and with whom they would
like in the way that is most expedient for them."
Enhanced Presence Features Help Users Quickly Find Each Other
In addition to existing phone-based presence status, Call Manager
Mobile now provides XMPP(TM) compatible server integration for
enhanced presence state information, accessing Microsoft Exchange(R)
Calendar information among other sources. Each VIPedge customer will
get his or her own XMPP server instance for an additional level of
flexibility and security. Coming soon, Call Manager Mobile will
federate with Microsoft Lync(TM) and Google Talk(TM), among others.
Single and Group Instant Messaging Improves Communication
Call Manager Mobile handles single and group instant messaging
sessions. Multiple simultaneous sessions are supported, enabling
users to better communicate with others. Users also have the ability
to send broadcast messages.
Single Number Reach for Incoming and Outgoing Calls
Call Manager Mobile integrates Toshiba's IPMobility solution,
providing single number reach for both incoming and outgoing calls,
meaning users only need to provide their office telephone number to
receive calls on multiple endpoint devices. With IPMobility
integration, the user is also able to access advanced system calling
features, including direct-extension dialing, call transfer, call
record, and more.
Incoming calls utilize Toshiba's VIPedge follow-me feature, which
gives users the option for either sequential or simultaneous ringing
to the desk phone and mobile phone. For outgoing calls, IPMobility
dials through the VIPedge, displaying the office number caller ID.
The user has the ability to either dial directly through the VIPedge
or have the VIPedge call back the user before making the outbound
call in order to avoid mobile network long distance charges, helping
companies control carrier costs.
Call Manager Mobile for Android is now available from Authorized
Toshiba Dealers nationwide. Call Manager Mobile for Apple(R) iOS(TM),
Apple OS X(TM), Microsoft(R) Windows(R), and other platforms will be
