XMediusFAX® Is Cisco VoIP Compatible

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

Consequently, some new VoIP deployments remain non-optimized – with costly POTS lines or unreliable ATAs still utilized for connecting traditional fax machines and multifunction printers (MFPs) – while the rest of the organization’s telecommunications are enjoying the features and reaping the benefits of VoIP.

This “fax problem” significantly impedes ROI payback on VoIP investments, since organizations continue to incur 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 a Cisco Developer Network Partner, Sagemcom offers XMediusFAXTM, 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 Cisco SIP and H.323 voice gateways, XMediusFAX enables faxes to share a common inbox, along with email and voicemail.

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

XMediusFAX is the first and only FoIP solution that talks to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CallManager) VoIP platform in Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) mode without the added expense of fax boards, additional routers or software kits. This saves money and leverages ROI on a Cisco VoIP deployment.

Cisco users with XMediusFAX T.38 FoIP 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.

Who Is XMediusFAX for?

Sagemcom’s award-winning, future-ready XMediusFAX boardless T.38 FoIP solution targets organizations (of any size) that have deployed or plan to deploy a Cisco VoIP infrastructure.

Reliable, easy-to-use & secure FoIP. For organizations of all sizes.

Integration with Cisco VoIP

Field-proven to manage large fax volumes and deliver high levels of reliability and availability, XMediusFAX connects to Cisco voice gateways via SIP or H.323.

Deployments that utilize the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CallManager), version 4.2(3) and subsequent patches, connect to XMediusFAX in MGCP mode.

Integration with Email and MFPs

XMediusFAX runs on Microsoft Windows and Exchange 2003 and 2000 platforms.

Users can send and receive faxes directly from their desktop email client (Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes), SMTP mail client (Microsoft Outlook Express, Eudora and Mozilla Thunderbird) or networked MFPs (SAGEM, OKI Printing Solutions, HP, Xerox, Lexmark, eCopy) via the VoIP network.
