Toshiba CIX40 Business Telephone System
ToshibaCIX40 is the smallest business telephone system in the Toshiba CIX Business Telephone Series and is the primary system for branch offices and consumers with small telecommunication needs. Despite its size, Toshiba claims the CIX40 still retains the major features of the larger systems in the family.

The unit ships with a 'default plug and play configuration' [ [http://www.enova.us/Support/Brochures/CIX40.pdf Toshiba CIX40 General Description] ] that supports the system itself and the main voicemail unit associated with the CIX40. Additionally programming can be done by using the proprietary Toshiba eManager software package. Programming a Toshiba CIX does have a learning curve and it would be difficult for a new user to perform maintenance on their system initially. Tutorials and installation manuals are scarce online and almost all information regarding this system is in print media distributed by Toshiba. Toshiba has be reluctant to supply end users with installation and maintenance material but there are independent sites that provide written and video tutorials of basic administration of the system.
