IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division (Toshiba -- www.telecom.toshiba.com) today announced Call Manager Mobile for Apple® iPhone® running iOS® R5 or R6, empowering users to access Toshiba's VIPedge™ cloud-based business telephone solution. This is the second platform release of Call Manager Mobile, which was initially released for Android™ in February 2013.
Call Manager Mobile empowers users to take their office calls and instant messages on their mobile phones just as if they were at their desks. It is based on HTML5, allowing rapid deployment to multiple OS platforms while retaining the same look-and-feel and functionality.
"Toshiba is pleased to announce its new Call Manager Mobile solution for iPhones, now joining the Android version with more OS platforms to come. Toshiba will continue to meet the BYOD demands of its customers by delivering solutions that meet the various device requirements of its end customers," said Brian Metherell, vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division. "With Call Manager Mobile, VIPedge delivers a seamless user experience both in the office and on the road."
Enhanced Presence Features Help Users Quickly Find Each Other
Call Manager Mobile provides telephone and XMPP™-based enhanced presence state information. Each VIPedge customer will get his or her own XMPP server instance for an additional level of flexibility and security. Coming soon, Call Manager Mobile will federate with Microsoft Lync™ and Google Talk™, among others.
Single and Group Instant Messaging Improves Communication
Call Manager Mobile handles single and group instant messaging sessions. Multiple simultaneous sessions are supported, enabling users to better communicate with others. Users also have the ability to send broadcast messages.
Single Number Reach for Incoming and Outgoing Calls
Call Manager Mobile integrates Toshiba's IPMobility solution, providing single-number reach for both incoming and outgoing calls, so users only need to provide their office telephone numbers to make and receive calls on multiple endpoint devices.
