When looking at the phone from the top or while using the phone it is hard to tell if it is a VoIP model or a Digital Model!
VoIP Phones (IPT, IP Series)(click for more info): Toshiba’s flagship business telephone sets have been VoIP since 2003. The flagship is shared with the Digital models in the next section. Each VoIP phone can be powered with a POE switch, a power injector at a non-POE switch, or locally with a power cube. Also see SIP below (another type of VoIP). Click above for more info!
Digital Phones (DKT, DP Series) (click for more info): Toshiba’s flagship business telephone sets have been digital since 1992. The flagship is now shared with the VoIP models in the previous section. Each digital phone has a non-shared powered connection with the Toshiba PBX. Click above for more info!
UCEdge Softphone on Cell App, PC/MAC, Tablet Toshiba keeps improving its UCEdge client. It runs on iPhone, Android, PC, MACs, and Tablets. Recently ACD functions have been added including Chat and presense.
|Soft IPT: Toshiba’s "Soft IPT" is a computer program for a traveling laptop, home computer, offsite desktop, or PDA that thinks it is a 10(20 with shift) button Toshiba phone. Requires both a Soft-IPT License and a VoIP endpoint License.|
|Door Phones: Toshiba’s door phone has been around for years. It is a speakerphone with a single button. Pressing the button sounds a “ding– dong” on selected Toshiba phones in the office. A controller is required and allows up to 3 doors or 2 doors and an “open door relay” (caution: only 1 door may be rung at a time—consider getting a controller for each door). Toshiba phone users can speak to the speakerphone and "open" the door (must be equipped with an electric door latch).|
Conference Room Phones: Two features determine a good conference room phone. The first is full duplex speakerphone (like all Toshiba VoIP models). This means that both parties can shout and yell at the same time and all can hear each other clearly. This assumes both ends have full duplex capability. With half duplex, parties must be courteous and let each other talk in turn. The problem with full duplex is preventing electronic feedback (amplifying the same sound over and over again that produces the squeal whenever a microphone and speaker are too close together). VoIP & SIP inherently prevent this problem since the sound transmitted is delayed through the data network before it is re-played. The second important feature is accepting sound input from all directions and from far away distances.
|Polycom’s conference room phones were the first to perfect this technology in the mid 90’s. They have been the market leaders since and have seen other large companies try and fail.|
Analog Polycom: This unit originally cost $3,500 in the 90’s. The improved models start at less than $500 now. These connect to an available Toshiba analog port (best since you can transfer to or from other Toshiba phones in your system before or after the conference). They may also be connected to a phone company analog telephone line. The choices start with : 1) basic non-display model, 2) display model, 3) display model that can someday handle extra microphones for a long conference room, 4) display models with extra microphones.
VoIP Polycom: These units usually cost 2-3 times as much as analog models. However, they often fit the need of the customer in select situations. Ask.
|Cordless Phones: Toshiba gives you the ability to take full digital desk phone functionality with you, whether it’s down the hall, into the conference room, or across campus. These cordless telephones allow you to access some of today’s most advanced desk phone features, such as desk phone extension numbers, call forwarding, Caller ID and multi-line access. You can even switch between your cordless and digital desk telephones during a call. Toshiba provides spread-spectrum and narrow band and DECT technology options to safeguard your phone’s frequency range and deliver maximum security.|
|Attendant Console: With Toshiba, any and all telephones can serve as an attendant answering position. You can add extra panels to a phone (up to 500 buttons) to create a fast and efficient answering station with light status of each user and one-touch call or transfer. Having one or more Attendant Consoles can help with answering busy phones. Toshiba’s solution is a computer program that handles your attendant functions with easy “drag N drop” answering.

Electronic Phones (EKT Series):Toshiba used electronic telephone sets from 1982 to 1992. These models start with EKT (eg. EKT-6020-SD). They generally do not have a RED HOLD key. They have not been discontinued for years, however, Parker has kept some from the recycler to help out our customers with older Toshiba systems models."
