Toshiba’s Trade Up Offer Enables Compliance with Kari’s Law Pending in Congress

This promotion enables legacy customers of Strata DK and Strata CTX systems to affordably trade up to Toshiba’s cloud-based VIPedge, or IPedge and Strata CIX onsite business telephone solutions.

Moving to Toshiba’s VIPedge and IPedge solutions help businesses comply with the pending Kari’s Law (S. 2553), which will mandate that 911 calls be made without first pressing ‘1’ or ‘9’.

This promotion runs through March 29, 2017.

Kari’s Law is named for Kari Hunt, who was killed by her estranged husband at a motel in Texas in 2013. Her 9-year-old child tried repeatedly to dial ‘911’ from the motel room’s phone but was not able to get through as the motel required dialing ‘9’ to get an outside line.

Toshiba is offering three “Trade Up” programs:

  • Trade Up to VIPedge Cloud Telephone Solution, Get Free Telephones – Trade up to VIPedge cloud-based business telephone solution and get a free IP5531-SDL telephone for each trade-in of Toshiba or select competitors’ telephones.
  • Upgrade to IPedge Onsite System, Get Free UC Licenses – Upgrade to any model of IPedge on-site business telephone system or Strata CIX with IPedge App Server and get 10 to 30 free UCedge licenses, depending on the system model. UCedge is an award-winning UC application.
  • Buy Five IP Telephones, Get Half Off – New and existing Toshiba customers can get half off MSRP when they purchase five IP5000-series telephones. Or, get 30% off MSRP when purchasing less than five telephones.
