Toshiba Expands its Alliance with Jabra

November 14, 2012

Toshiba (News - Alert) America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division, is one of the three business units of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. and a provider of business communication solutions. Jabra (News - Alert), a company specializing in headset solutions, has been working with the department since 2007.

Both are further expanding their relationship to increase their commitment to developing integrated unified communications solutions.

The current announcement includes certification of interoperability of the Jabra GO 6470 hands-free headset with Toshiba's SoftIPT softphone and desk phones, which work with Toshiba's IPedge and Strata CIX IP business telephone systems.

Additionally, the Jabra GO 9470 is compatible with Toshiba's VIPedge cloud-based business telephone solutions.

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with JABRA. The new certification of Jabra GO 6470 headset ensures our customers that it is compatible and well integrated with Toshiba's IPedge, VIPedge and Strata CIX business telephone systems as well as Toshiba's desk telephones and softphone products," Brian Metherell (News - Alert), vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems Inc., Telecommunication Systems Division, said in a statement.

The Jabra GO 6470 can connect to three devices at the same time – desk, mobile and softphones – enabling the use of one headset for all calls. A professional headset designed with mobile workers in mind, the GO 6470's Bluetooth wireless technology allows users to easily take the headset on the road and connect it to a mobile phone when traveling for business.

The Jabra GO 6470 is part of the Jabra GO 6400 Series and features high-quality sound, Noise Blackout technology and three wearing styles for greater comfort.

"This certification further exemplifies our commitment to ensuring that our products are interoperable with Toshiba's SoftIPT softphone, desk phones and unified communications offerings," said Pete Fox, president of Jabra North America.

"As more and more workers migrate toward multiple forms of UC voice communication, the GO 6470 meets those demands and comes fully equipped with multiuse technology and an easy-to-use touch screen experience," Fox added.

Toshiba America Information Systems recently bagged TMC's 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for its IPedge IP business telephone system. The company has won this prestigious award for its successes achieved by IPedge EP at LifeLong Medical Care.
