Alcatel Certified Application

XMediusFAX® Is Alcatel-Lucent Certified-Tested


Alcatel-Lucent VoIP network infrastructures are proliferating today. For organizations transitioning to an Alcatel-Lucent VoIP and multimedia deployment, a vital component often overlooked in unified messaging is Fax over IP (FoIP).

Consequently, new VoIP deployments sometimes lag behind with costly POTS lines or unreliable ATAS still being utilized for connecting traditional fax machines and multifunction printers (MFPs) while the rest of the organization's telecommunications reap the benefits of VoIP features.

This non-optimal setup significantly impedes ROI payback on VoIP investments, since organizations continue to face long-distance fax charges, fax board maintenance and upgrades, paper, toner, as well as other fax-related costs. Without FoIP, organizations are hindered in productivity, business workflow, and ultimately even regulatory compliance in sectors such as government, healthcare, and finance.

As an Alcatel-Lucent Application Partner, Sagemcom offers XMediusFAX, a unique T.38 FoIP server application that addresses the “fax problem” in non-optimized VoIP environments.
