IP Fax Solutions Provider Sagem-Interstar to Demo XMediusFAX Release 6.0

By Patrick Barnard, Group Managing Editor, TMCnet

IP fax solutions provider Sagem (News - Alert)-Interstar ( will be demonstrating XMediusFAX Release 6.0, which it claims is the IP fax industry's first system to offer “survivability,” during VoiceCon Orlando, to be held March 30 through April 1, 2009.

By “survivability” the company means the system is capable of withstanding single or even multiple failures, or even a disaster, without significantly impairing its normal operations. This is particularly attractive to companies that want high-reliability systems and appliances as part of a business continuity plan (BCP), including those operating in segments where regulatory compliance comes into play.
Show attendees who visit booth 1417 will learn how their companies can accelerate the ROI case for UC and virtualization strategies by deploying FoIP “survivability” in their BCP.

Specifically, Sagem-Interstar will demonstrate its XMediusFAX SP Release 6.0 peered with XMediusFAX AXP 6.0 for the Cisco (News - Alert) AXP platform with the Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR).
Sagem-Interstar’s (News - Alert) XMediusFAX fax server is a T.38 Fax over IP (FoIP) solution with a boardless approach to fax-enabling VoIP networks. Running on Windows 2000 and 2003, it provides for convenient desktop faxing and fax broadcasting: Users can compose, send and receive faxes directly from their email clients.

The XMediusFAX server connects directly to leading VoIP gateways from Cisco, Avaya (News - Alert), AudioCodes and Alcatel. Sagem-Interstar claims that with this system, companies can boost productivity by 90 percent over conventional manual faxing, since users no longer need to make time-consuming trips to the fax machine.

What’s more the system helps companies reduce telecom costs by as much as 40 percent or more over traditional faxing. Through XMediusFAX's built-in Least Cost Routing, faxes travel over the IP network for most of their journey, as opposed to the PSTN.

Sagem-Interstar, a division of Sagem Communications (News - Alert), made news on TMCnet last week when it introduced OpenLine and OpenScribe, two new complimentary "plug and play" server appliances for secure routing, cost-effective faxing, document management and archiving. These new rack-mounted appliances leverage existing IT investments through open compatibility with multifunction peripherals (MFPs) and information systems.
