Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division has announced Strata Messaging, a new low-cost, entry-level Unified Messaging solution for the SMB market. Compatible with Toshiba’s Strata CIX family of IP business communication systems, Strata Messaging is now available through Toshiba’s network of Authorized Dealers nationwide.
“In the past, small to medium businesses had to purchase expensive equipment for Unified Messaging features. Now with Strata Messaging, Toshiba’s SMB customers have an affordable and reliable Unified Messaging solution designed to work with their Toshiba VoIP systems,” said Ron Hunsaker, senior product manager for Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division.
Designed for SMB users, Strata Messaging is compatible with Toshiba’s Strata CIX family of IP business communications systems, including the CIX40, CIX100, CIX200, CIX670 and CIX1200. It is ideally sized and priced to address the Unified Messaging needs of users of the smaller Toshiba VoIP systems, the Strata CIX40 and CIX100.
Strata Messaging supports two to eight ports of voice mail, up to 400 mailboxes, and has 300 hours of storage. The base system package offers two voice mail ports and 10 seats of Unified Messaging. Additional ports and Unified Messaging seats can be purchased and licensed through Authorized Toshiba Dealers.
Strata Messaging resides on an external Linux-based appliance equipped with internal components designed for reliability. Because it is an external device, it does not use a full card slot in the system; rather, it uses only a portion of a GIPU or MIPU IP card leaving the remaining ports free for other applications. Strata Messaging connects to the Strata CIX through IP channels.
