Toshiba Strata CIX Family of Telephone Systems:
|Toshiba Home||Toshiba Systems|
Good Fit Indicators: Best fit are for sites with older cabling or those with existing digital Toshiba phones. Digital Phones are the most bulletproof type. You can expand new areas with VoIP models but service older areas with digital phones. You can have digital phones on site while offer VoIP models to remote sites and teleworkers. Tradional Analog POTs and PRI phone service can offer the most resilient phone service. Toshiba CIX core systems are bulletproof and offer some of the longest life available. With no operating system in the core the system can not be hacked to gain access to to the customer network. With VoIP "insulation" (hacking VoIP operation systems can't get to customer network).
CIX Family: Toshiba offers five Strata CIX systems which share the same software feature set but differ only in their maximum configuration size. Toshiba has a non-blocking architecture design that means every telephone can be used at once without power, CPU, or path limitations. Base cost is determined by maximum size permitted. The family members overlap in sizing and most use a license strategy where capacity is unlocked as you need it. This allows you to grow without having to pay for growth until you need it.
100% VoIP OR 100% Digital OR any percentage inbetween: Toshiba CIX is a modular system that can be expanded in either direction or both at any time. Giving migration to older Toshiba systems.
App Server gives most modern features Adding a Toshiba App Server (Stripped down IPedge without phones) gives the most modern of features to the traditional Toshiba CIX platform.
Factory updates are Free Toshiba offers free firmware updates. The dealer only charges for the labor to install them which is often an hour or less.
Strata DK Migration 1991-2000 Toshiba DK Systems can be converted into CIX by changing Cabinets and CPU card. Keeping most existing Digital Phones, CO Cards, Station Cards, Voice Mail, etc. Give new life and features to your old Toshiba system.
Class Migration The CIX 100, 670 can migrate to a larger system by changing CPU (keeping licensing) or changing/adding cabinets. Please contact us for other combinations.
Licensing: CIX licensing is tied to the CPU card. If the card fails or you expand to a larger CPU the licenses can be transfered. Toshiba CIX licensing does not expire.
