Sagem-Interstar (Sagemcom Group), the global leader in advanced IP fax server solutions, will be spotlighted at an ITEXPO East 2010 panel discussion comprised of four enterprise fax experts. The panel speakers will share their views on how FoIP addresses both business and technology issues in a UC system, whether it involves SIP, virtualization or T.38. Sebastien Lalonde, a core member of the senior R&D leadership team at Sagem-Interstar, will speak during the panel session titled Integrating Fax into Your Enterprise UC Experience at 3 p.m. on January 21, 2010 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Florida.

Sagem-Interstar will also be exhibiting at ITEXPO booth # 526 from January 20-22. The booth will showcase the recently launched XMediusFAX (TM) Release 6.5 FoIP server software suite, which includes:

- "Auto-healing" capabilities in high availability and disaster recovery scenarios, when paired with the Cisco ISR and AXP.

  - XMediusFAX is the world's first and only application-certified fax
    solution to run inside a Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR) and
    Application eXtension Platform (AXP). It provides for rapid ROI and
    cost-effective branch office survivability.

- Microsoft application-certified integration with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Unified Messaging (UM), Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2

Other new anchor elements in XMediusFAX Release 6.5 include:

- A comprehensive and rich multilingual user interface (supporting English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Portuguese)

- FoIP-optimized operations enhancements facilitating rapid deployment and troubleshooting

- A state-of the art, versatile report-generation engine for improved control and business process effiiciency

- Advanced number modification enabling flexible UC application deployment

- Powerful web phonebook for seamless integration with emerging web 2.0 technologies and infrastructures

- Full SIP-based interoperability with major UC platforms, including Cisco CUCM/AXP, Avaya Aura CM, and Alcatel-Lucent OXE, as well as other leading gateway and infrastructure solutions (including Microsoft)

Sagem-Interstar will also showcase its Open Line PR 10.0 platform (IP fax server appliance with smart document management and advanced archiving and routing capabilities) launched globally in Q2/2009. A robust T.38 FoIP engine alongside XMediusFAX core software are integrated as standardized offerings within the platform. This latest version supports some key advanced capabilities, including high availability, which were previously offered only in the high-end XMediusFAX standalone software suite.


Jean Champagne, General Manager, Sagem-Interstar (Sagemcom Group):

"In 2010, we anticipate that the deployment of T.38 based FoIP solutions will continue to accelerate. SIP trunking will become an increasingly important driver and networking consideration for IP fax server installations. From a competitive perspective, continued consolidation will rule in 2010. Timely and focused investments in this space will prove key regarding market share gains. Sagem-Interstar, with strong financial backing from its corporate parent Sagemcom, as well as tight relationships with key players like Microsoft, Cisco, Avaya, and Alcatel-Lucent, is well-positioned to take advantage of emerging competitive and industry dynamics."
