The history of Toshiba phones began in 1939 with the amalgamation of Shibaura Seisaku-sho (Shibaura Engineering Works) Company and the Hakunetsu-sha & Co., Ltd electric lamp company. These two large equipment companies merged to create the Tokyo Shibaura Denki (Tokyo Shibaura Electric Co., Ltd.). It was not until the Tokyo company branch began to open up American branches in 1965 that Toshiba phones became recognized as household and business-worthy products.

By 1978, Tokyo Shibaura Denki became known as "Toshiba" by foreign markets. In 1989, Toshiba America was considered one of the most diverse and powerful companies to develop new and high-quality communication electronics. To date, there have been thousands of different and varied Toshiba phones designed for either home or business use.

Today, the most popular Toshiba phones are the digital desktop models, especially the ones that come in 10, 14 or 20-button designs. These phones feature top-of-the-line speakerphones that are so well designed that there is practically no quality difference between listening through the speaker and through a headset. Toshiba also makes a number of simple, single-line phones that are perfect for low-traffic endpoints, such as those in break rooms, equipment storage areas and meeting rooms.

A Digital Attendant to Increase the Efficiency of Toshiba Phones

The CTX Attendant console is a great possible addition to any already existing collection of Toshiba telephones. The attendant helps in the process of handling high volumes of calls in a simple yet complete manner by using caller ID and a DNIS (Dialed Number Identification Service) to warn secretaries and receptionists who may be calling the company. These calls can then be quickly routed to the right extension or voice mailbox with a few simple clicks of the mouse.
