Sagem-Interstar Inc. (Sagem Communications), the global leader in advanced IP fax server solutions (www.sagem-interstar.com), has launched XMediusFAX Release 6.0 - the industry's first patented T.38 FoIP solution to offer comprehensive enterprise and remote branch office fax survivability capabilities. Sagem-Interstar's XMediusFAX 6.0 solution is being launched this week at VoiceCon Orlando (Booth #1417), March 30 to April 1 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.

Survivability of an increasingly business critical application like fax must be integrated within an overall corporate business continuity plan (BCP) that includes an assessment of the total cost of application downtime. With XMediusFAX 6.0, the IP fax server survivability solution can be cost-efficiently tailored to address a wide range of system availability and disaster recovery objectives consistent with the specific fax service downtime impact. Whatever survivability solution is selected, XMediusFAX's fundamental scalability and security features are not compromised.

XMediusFAX software solutions are optimized to efficiently address the accelerating global TDM to IP migration trend, deliver enhanced productivity, streamlined operations, and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). These solutions address diverse fax deployment drivers ranging from increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, evolving infrastructure strategies (i.e., UC, ECM, 'branch' optimization), flexible application integration (ERP / CRM) to adoption of more economical, eco-friendly core technologies (i.e., FoIP, virtualization,SIP trunking) and versatile multifunction devices (MFDs).

"XMediusFAX software solutions provide users the flexibility to rapidly send and receive faxes from a wide spectrum of interfaces (e.g., desktop email clients, MFPs, cell phones, etc.) and with guaranteed performance", says John Nikolopoulos, Director of Marketing, Sagem-Interstar. "The innovative survivability and robust virtualization capabilities of Sagem-Interstar's XMediusFAX FoIP solutions ensure corporate governance and green-related IT priorities are cost-efficiently addressed. Such solutions minimize potential fax application downtime that could adversely impact productivity, revenue, customer service, compliance processes, and even corporate reputation."

Customer Quote:

Van Meter Industrial, one of North America's largest electrical and automation wholesale distributors and a long-time XMediusFAX SP customer, is the first to deploy the new XMediusFAX 6.0 branch survivability FoIP solution within a Cisco AXP/ISR 2800 environment. This deployment was driven by the fundamental need to minimize the impact of the loss of fax service at a remote branch due to WAN link problems.

Ron Rathjens, Senior Network Engineer, Van Meter Industrial

"We have been using the XMediusFAX solution for over 3 years. 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."
