Toshiba America Information Systems’ Telecommunication Systems Division has announced the availability of its new built-in softphone as part of an update to its UCedge client software available for Mac OS X.
Toshiba’s UCedge softphone gives Mac users the ability to use their devices as extensions on their VIPedge, IPedge or Hybrid Cloud business communications solution. Using the softphone enhances the UC benefits, including presence and instant messaging with both internal and external organizations, said Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager of Toshiba’sTelecommunication Systems Division.
UCedge is compatible with Toshiba’s VIPedge cloud-based business telephone solution, IPedge on-site Unified Communications system, and Strata CIX systems with an IPedge Application Server, as well as Toshiba’s Hybrid Cloud solution.
UCedge client software, including softphone, runs on OS X, Windows, iOS, and Android systems. UCedge, including the new softphone for OS X users, requires a licensing fee for IPedge and Strata CIX users. Toshiba’s VIPedge includes UCedge at no extra cost in the per-user monthly fee. Toshiba also offers UCedge Essentials, a free version with core features. To find out more, contact an Authorized Toshiba Dealer at www.Telecom.Toshiba.com.
