Today, NetGen Communications, Inc., a spin-off of Commetrex (News - Alert) Corporation, has introduced version 2.0 of its Smart ATA product, complete with Commetrex’s patent-pending Smart FoIP.
Smart ATA is truly defining the next-generation standards-based voice fax gateway. It is the industry's first analog telephone adapter to include T.38 version three with V.34. Also, it is the only ATA that offers reliable FoIP when making calls to carrier networks.
Listed at a price of $130, Smart ATA 2.0 has two stations, two offices, and two Ethernet ports. Smaller configurations, quantity discounts, and distributor pricing are also available.
Smart FoIP is a software product that solves two big problems with FoIP that have been vexing ITSPs ever since they have been making fax calls in IP carrier networks such as eliminating lateT.38 reinvite problems and ridding fax solutions of PCM clock sync problems.
Further, ITSPs can now rely on T.38 and G.711 pass-through FoIP in SIP networks and achieve the same fax completion rates as with PSTN fax. And Smart FoIP also takes care of the very intricate set up required to support T.38 V3 with V.34 in IP-PSTN gateways and ATAs.
In a statement, David Greenwald, the product’s team leader said, “Since carrier-based FoIP calls begin as a voice call, the two endpoint fax terminals can ‘hear’ each other early in the call as soon as the connection is established. At that time, they begin executing the T.30 fax protocol. But if the carrier is late in attempting to switch to T.38, it will unwittingly kill the fax if the calling gateway does not have Smart FoIP. And multi-page failures in G.711 FoIP are all too common. Smart FoIP eliminates them by making all multi-page faxes appear to be multiple single-page faxes. Problem solved!”
