Strata CIX


Whether your business is small or large, a single location, or a branch location of a larger organization, you need a communication system that enables you to connect with your customers and promote collaboration within your organization; a system that lets you work exactly as you need to today, while giving you the ability to cost-effectively add capabilities as you grow; a system that utilizes the latest technologies to save you money, boost productivity, improve customer service, and deliver a superior return on your investment.

Strata CIX™ communication systems provide the ultimate in modular, scalable, and networkable telephone solutions for today's businesses.


The Strata CIX is an IP communication system that integrates your voice and data applications over your existing IP network. It combines the advantages of network based telephony and the features of traditional PBX systems and extends full telephone functionality to both local and remote users via IP telephones connected to your private intranet or the Internet, providing the same productivity features to all users no matter where they are located. All while reducing your infrastructure cost, lowering capital expenditures and operational costs, and increasing productivity.

But Strata CIX is not just an IP system – it does much more. It also provides the configuration flexibility you want to build the communications system you need.

The Strata CIX supports all types of terminal devices. This includes a complete line of Toshiba IP telephones, IP add-on modules, DSS consoles, and an IP Attendant Console for high-volume call environments, as well as third party SIP telephones, analog telephones, and Toshiba digital telephones.

The Strata CIX supports all types of network connections including IP network interfaces, analog and digital Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) interfaces.

This flexibility enables the Strata CIX to be configured with all IP telephones, all digital telephones, public or private network connections, or combinations in between. Toshiba IP solutions allow you to decide when and where it makes sense for you to deploy IP telephony or digital telephone equipment. This provides you flexibility, and maximizes your return on investment.


True customization comes when you can adapt a solution completely to your needs. Using Toshiba's FeatureFlex™ adaptability tool, the Strata CIX with integrated Media Application Server, provides you a revolutionary way of personalizing your telephone system with just the right capabilities. Tailor your system well beyond the standard system and administrative options and basic programmable features to modify virtually any existing features or create new ones. And not just CIX call processing, but blended features that work between all system applications and resources. This includes voice mail, CTI applications, and more. An easy to use script editor works with the Strata CIX and Media Application Server to interpret code, process functions, follow custom routing, and more.

Rather than waiting months or years for the next software release, FeatureFlex makes it possible to add the features you need today. So in just a short time, you can have a telephone system customized to your needs.


Toshiba provides a family of Strata CIX communication systems for every business— regardless of size:

  • CIX100-S supports combinations of CO lines and station users totaling 16 ports in its base configuration, and is expandable to CIX100 capacity.
  • CIX100 supports up to 64 CO lines or 72 station users and combinations up to 112 ports.
  • CIX200 supports up to 96 CO lines or160 station users and combinations up to 192 ports.
  • CIX670 supports up to 264 CO lines or 560 station users and combinations up to 672 ports.

Toshiba's Strata Net technology enables multiple Strata CIX systems to be networked together to provide additional capacity and accommodate multiple locations. Multiple networked systems work together as one integrated system and provide centralized attendant services, share a single centralized voice mail system, provide unified call center operations, and internal extension dialing. Other benefits include saving money by avoiding costly long-distance charges on calls between locations, and turning a long-distance call into a local call by "hopping off" the network as needed.


"No customer gets left behind" is a proven promise that Toshiba fulfills with every new product, and the Strata CIX product family proves it once again. When migrating to newer or larger systems in the future, you'll enjoy an exceptional return on your investment by being able to reuse telephones and key components that are common between all Strata CIX systems.

Easily move from older Strata DK and Strata CTX® systems to Strata CIX without additional training—and take much of your existing equipment with you, including Toshiba 2000-series and 3000-series digital telephones, trunk and station interface cards, option cards, and Stratagy® voice mail. You have the configuration flexibility to build the communication system you need today, while protecting your technology investment into the future.
