Touted as a fax provider that simply “makes FoIP work”, Georgia-based Commetrex (News - Alert) has continued to evolve its fax offerings for over fifteen years. The company has gained tons of respect in the industry for its technologies that make it far less complex for users to move away from traditional fax and towards next-generation IP fax solutions.
Recently, the organization revealed it has been hard at work developing its new product coined FaxTap for SIP which will be ready for beta testing right before Thanksgiving Day, in November. With the goal of launching this innovative offering by late Q4, the fax provider will price this hot ticket item for around $4,250 for a single-seat license.
Fax-over-IP also known as FoIP has increased significantly in popularity over recent years due to the many benefits it can offer any company including increased efficiency, the streamlining of company operations overall and continuing to adhere to strict regulations that are ever-changing. A major factor that is causing many organizations to take a closer look at FoIP is that it can cut costs as users can now send faxes directly into carrier networks.
Although advantageous for the most part, this benefit can bring with it some obstacles that subscribers and providers alike must first overcome by leveraging vital tools such as Commetrex's new FaxTap for SIP.
“FaxTap for SIP allows network operators and equipment vendors to analyze FoIP calls and render the image, even if the call uses the high-speed V.34 fax modem, and it does it for both G.711 pass-through and T.38 version 3 calls. We believe that this is the product the industry needs to finally move to reliable carrier-based FoIP. There is also an OEM-developer's version that accepts PCM recordings directly,” company officials revealed.
This offering powers varied levels of call analysis such as the ability to render the fax image which is seen at the most basic level. Looking at the most detailed level, consumers are provided with a ladder diagram that outlines every T.38 frame, T.30 frame, and detailed image-line analysis. Low-level modem analysis can also be generated for all image-transfer modems, including V.34.
