Toshiba America Information Systems Inc.’s Telecommunication Systems Division Tuesday launched its new Strata CIX1200 VoIP business communication system for medium-to-large companies. Supporting up to 1,152 ports, the Strata CIX1200 is designed for 200 to 1,000 users and delivers networked applications for as many as 128 sites.
“The new Strata CIX1200 expands Toshiba’s reach in the medium-to-large market segment, giving enterprises a robust Toshiba solution at nearly double the port capacity of our Strata CIX670,” said Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager for TAIS, TSD. “The CIX1200 can be customized using Toshiba’s FeatureFlex adaptability tool, and provides a smooth migration path from smaller Toshiba systems.”
FeatureFlex, Toshiba’s feature adaptability and customization tool, allows users to create user-definable features companywide, by department or for individual users. Existing features can be modified, and new ones can be created, including features in CIX call processing, as well as blended features that work among all system applications and resources.
In addition, the Strata CIX1200 can be networked with other Toshiba Strata CIX systems, from other CIX1200s, all the way down to the small 40-port Strata CIX40. It can be networked for up to a total of 128 sites to accommodate larger capacity or distributed configurations, such as retail or restaurant locations.
Users of other Toshiba Strata systems can migrate to the new Strata CIX1200. Telephones and most system interface cards may be reused, as can the voice mail systems and the Strata Media Application Server with resident applications. Strata MAS integrates applications, such as voice mail/unified messaging, IVR, ACD, video conferencing and collaboration, as well as Web-based administration and FeatureFlex customization tools all on one platform.
Strata CIX1200 and all Strata CIX systems are compatible with Toshiba’s IP and digital telephones, including Toshiba’s new IP5000 IP telephones, attendant consoles, soft phone and third-party SIP telephones (as tested by Toshiba).
Strata CIX1200 also can be TDM-enabled, giving users a choice of running a pure IP system or a mix of IP and digital TDM.
Retail prices of Strata CIX systems are set by Authorized Toshiba Dealers who sell to end users. Dealer pricing may vary, but the estimated average retail price per station starts from $400 depending upon configuration, applications, telephone models selected, and size.
