IRVINE, USA: Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division released its new UCedge Unified Communications solution.
Redefining Unified Communications, UCedge delivers interoperability between Toshiba phone systems and third-party devices -- including smartphones, tablets and Windows® and Mac® computers.
"UCedge puts your desktop business phone in your pocket by turning your Android or Apple smartphones or tablets into multimedia office productivity tools," said Brian Metherell, VP and GM of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division.
"With the UCedge mobile client, your Android and Apple devices double as extensions of the business phone system, doing the tasks you would expect from your business telephone, including unified communications."
"Toshiba's new UCedge client application enables feature parity across all device types, including smartphones, tablets, mobile and desktop computers. This is an advantage over many communications vendors that offer a full feature set with a Windows desktop client but only a subset of these features with client applications for supported mobile devices," said Sandra Gustavsen, analyst at G Business Systems.
Toshiba's new UCedge client brings unified communications to Android and Apple smartphones and tablets and Windows and Mac computers. UCedge works on Toshiba's VIPedge® and IPedge® business phone solutions as well as Strata® CIX systems with an IPedge Application Server. With client software that is easily downloaded from the Internet, users gain new levels of convenience, productivity and cost savings, no matter how they access their Toshiba phone systems.
