Enterprise-quality IP communications for your business without the need to buy, install or maintain PBX equipment
Is your organization planning to upgrade an analog or digital business telephone system to gain the capabilities and advantages only IP communications can offer?
Is your business a new or expanding venture with big potential but limited capital, needing to compete with much larger companies and project an enterprise-class image?
Would it benefit your organization to manage communications costs as a predictable monthly operating expense instead of an upfront purchase with annual maintenance contracts?
If any of these scenarios sound familiar, your organization could be an ideal candidate for cloud-based voice over IP (VoIP) service, which delivers the benefits of modern IP business communications without the need to buy, install or maintain an on-site IP PBX.
Whether you want to conserve capital or simply free your IT talent for better things than running the office phone system, hosted communications services can be very liberating—and surprisingly affordable.
Toshiba offers its award-winning IPedge® business communications system as its cloud-based VIPedge™ service. With VIPedge, you get the benefits of an on-premises IPedge system, but instead of buying or leasing the system, you simply pay a monthly service fee based on size and usage.
The award-winning benefits of an on-premises Toshiba IPedge business telephone system but without the need to buy, install or maintain your own core servers.
Simplify the communications infrastructure
With VIPedge, Toshiba provides the data center infrastructure, IPedge servers and managed IP network that delivers the central intelligence of the communications system. All you need on-site are endpoint user devices and the local area network (LAN) to connect those devices to the secure VIPedge managed IP network. There’s no need to worry about powering, maintaining or updating the IPedge server. Toshiba takes care of all that in the cloud, and you always benefit from the latest firmware, software and features.
VIPedge uses the same high-quality Toshiba endpoint devices as the IPedge, including IP5000-series desk telephones, soft phones and mobility devices, such as the IP4100.
VIPedge provides a flexible way to control capital expenses, expand calling features and empower users for greater efficiency and productivity.
Project a big-business image with an SMB-friendly package.
VIPedge delivers a comprehensive feature suite based upon the IPedge—all the communication tools a business needs to communicate effectively, including:
- Complete business telephone features, such as the ability to see who’s calling, transfer to voice mail or another line without picking up, put a call on hold and pick it up from another phone, speed-dial extensions, make conference calls and automatically redial busy lines;
- Voice mail with unified messaging, with email and voice mail in one inbox, easy message retrieval and management, user-configurable mailbox options and more;
- Unified communications for efficient call control from a PC or laptop; click-to-dial, presence and instant messaging; and integration with leading customer relationship management (CRM) programs, such as Salesforce.com®, Act!® and Microsoft Outlook®; and
- Mobility solutions including in-building wireless communications, Find-me Follow-me call routing, and simultaneous ringing of your desk and mobile telephones.
Users can personalize their own phones, call handling, outgoing messages and more, just as they would if the IPedge server were in the office.
VIPedge eliminates the need to purchase or lease on-site PBX equipment to gain advanced calling features such as conference calls, Find-me Follow-me, simultaneous ringing, unified messaging, unified communications and mobility solutions.
Count on premium system availability
With VIPedge, Toshiba maintains IPedge servers in secure data centers that meet SAS 70 Type II audit standards set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). These data centers enforce rigorous controls that protect the security, availability and performance of your IP telephone system. Your organization benefits from data center survivability, security and controls that far surpass what a small business can provide on-site. For example, if the IPedge server that provides your business phone services becomes unavailable for any reason, the system automatically re-registers to a backup system, without users even noticing. If a primary network path becomes unavailable, calls can find their way to users’ cell phones or other devices via an alternate path using the IPedge Find-me Follow-me feature.
Become a more agile organization
With a cloud service, you’re not locked into a long-term system purchase commitment. Pay only for what you need today, and expand on demand as your business grows. It’s easy to open a new location or add seats to meet short-term or unexpected requirements. New applications are quickly deployed and managed in the cloud rather than on individual devices. With this adaptability, the business can respond rapidly to new opportunities and changing market conditions.
Count on Toshiba and your Authorized Toshiba Dealer

Migrate to an on-site IPedge system at any time
If your needs change or your business expands to the point that it makes economic sense to have your own IP phone system, you can easily migrate to an on-premises IPedge system. You will reuse the same Toshiba endpoints, and users will not have to re-learn how to use the phone system. Cloud or on-site, the choice is yours.
