Event attendees will also learn how to reduce their environmental footprint, and total cost of ownership.

The Cisco Integrated Services Router plus the Cisco Application eXtension Platform
(AXP) address the challenges associated with fax by teaming with global innovator in advanced fax server solutions for SIP/IP networking infrastructures, Sagem-Interstar and its XMediusFAX T.38 Fax over IP (FoIP) fax server technology.
During the Webcast, see how Cisco routers support retail, government, financial services and healthcare communications with the Cisco AXP-XMediusFAX solution. Learn more about this integrated approach and how it addresses faxing as part of a complete UC strategy.

The event will be led by Marlowe Fenne, solutions marketing manager, Cisco and Christian Larocque, vice president of business development, Sagem-Interstar (News - Alert).
With over 12 years of product management and marketing experience in the industry, Fenne is currently leading strategic marketing initiatives for advanced technology integration on the Cisco Integrated Services Router.
Larocque has more than 15 years of international sales and business development experience in the fields of enterprise content management, business process automation and telecommunication solutions. He has been working with Sagem-Interstar for the past five years.
Many companies have already taken advantage of the Cisco AXP-XMediusFAX FoIP provides, and are reaping the benefits.
The Cardiovascular Group, P.C. recently deployed the solution in an effort to increase employee productivity and help meet regulatory requirements for a robust, fast and reliable HIPAA-compliant healthcare communication solution.
According to Daryl Schweiger, information systems manager of The Cardiovascular Group, P.C, “Cisco AXP-XMediusFAX FoIP is a green solution, since it integrates directly into our existing ISR, and does not require additional cooling, power consumption and rack space. In all, The Cardiovascular Group anticipates monthly savings of $3,000 in telecom and document handling costs.”
H.I.G Capital, a leading global private investment firm, also deployed the Cisco AXP-XMediusFAX solution to integrate fax services into UC to speed up business processes and deal flow. See how Cisco AXP–XMediusFAX reduces TCO and simplify fax services within a UC environment by tuning into the Lippis Report podcast.
Van Meter Industrial, an electrical distribution company, has been using the XMediusFAX solution for over three years.
According to the company’s Senior Network Engineer, Ron Rathjens, “During the past year we have experienced some WAN issues (i.e. over-subscribed bandwidth) and needed a 'quick fix' so we could continue receiving faxes while our WAN was being upgraded. We selected the XMediusFAX AXP solution because it gave us that 'quick fix' we were looking for. It also provided us with a robust, redundant system that easily integrated into our existing infrastructure. The AXP integration was easy to install by simply plugging the NME module into our existing Cisco ISR router and configuring the software."
