XMediusFAX® Is Avaya Devconnect-Tested


Avaya VoIP network infrastructures are proliferating today. For organizations transitioning to an Avaya IP Telephony 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 still being utilized for connecting traditional fax machines and multifunction printers (MFPs).

This non-optimal setup significantly impedes ROI payback on VoIP investments, since organizations still must 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 Avaya Technology Partner, Sagemcom offers XMediusFAX, a unique T.38 FoIP server application that addresses the “fax problem” in non-optimized VoIP environments.

About the XMediusFAX Boardless FoIP Technology

XMediusFAX differentiates itself as the world’s first IP fax server software with a boardless approach to fax-enabling VoIP networks. Interoperating seamlessly with the Avaya Aura Communication Manager VoIP platform, XMediusFAX enables faxes to share a common inbox with email and voicemail.

Compliant-Tested by Avaya, XMediusFAX offers end-users the most robust, cost-effective, and easy-to-deploy IP fax solution adapted for Avaya VoIP environments.

XMediusFAX was the first FoIP solution to talk to the Avaya Aura Communication Manager VoIP platform without the added expense of fax boards or additional software kits. This saves money and leverages ROI on an Avaya VoIP deployment.

Avaya users with XMediusFAX T.38 FoIP or G.711 Pass-through technology reap numerous benefits, including a future-ready investment for both planned or installed VoIP networks, significantly lower costs, improved productivity, single-network manageability, seamless integration, and improved workflow.

Outbound Faxes to the PSTN:

XMediusFAX can send calls over an H.323 IP trunk to Avaya Aura Communication Manager.
Avaya Aura Communication Manager routes the fax calls to one or more PSTN trunks. When using SIP trunks, fax calls are first sent to the Avaya Aura Session Manager. Then they are sent from the Session Manager. The Communication Manager will then route the call to the inter-site trunks (ISDN-PRI or SIP) to reach the remote site.

Inbound Faxes from the PSTN:

Avaya Communication Manager routes the incoming fax calls over the SIP / H.323 IP trunk to XMediusFAX.

XMediusFAX seamless integration with Avaya IP Office Platform

Avaya IP Office routes incoming/outgoing fax calls over the SIP trunk to XMediusFAX.
