XMediusFAX SP EditionXMediusFAX® SP Edition

Software based FoIP solutions for organizations requiring cost-effective survivability, scalability, and multi-tenancy


Redefining the IP Fax Server Market

XMediusFAX® is Sagemcom’s innovative and patented IP fax server solution supporting the secure and standardized T.38 Fax-over-IP protocol and G.711 Fax Pass-Through. Redefining the market when it was first introduced in 2002, XMediusFAX® is the global leading software-only IP fax server solution that is offered in three application optimized editions, namely, SP for Service Provider, EE for Enterprise, and X for Express.

Optimizing Global TDM to IP Migration

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) and versatile multifunction devices (MFDs).

Service Provider Highlights

The XMediusFAX® Service Provider edition is field proven to manage large fax volumes and deliver high levels of scalability, survivability, security, and advanced integration capabilities. It is targeted for service providers and large enterprises and contains a number of key features including:

  • Intra-system replication for high availability (floating channel licensing with automatic license redistribution upon failure)
  • Inter-system replication for business continuity and disaster recovery
  • Multi-tenancy for improved management (up to 500 sites)
  • Ability to handle up to 300 fax channels per server
  • Distributed SOA architecture with automatic load balancing for increased system scalability
  • MySQL database scalable to millions of inbound /outbound faxes with easy archiving
  • Enhanced LDAP directory integration (i.e., Active Directory, Lotus Domino) with LDAPS support
  • SSL authentication and encryption between all server modules and clients
  • Virtual machine support using VMware, Microsoft Hypervisor and Citrix
  • Advanced SIP Trunking (T.38 and G.711) optimized integration
  • Rich administration and monitoring tools
  • Comprehensive inbound fax routing methods for telephony (i.e., DID, CSID) and character recognition based (i.e., OCR, barcodes) solutions

Compelling Economics

Providing Substantial ROI

Simple to use and administer, XMediusFAX® Service Provider yields considerable and rapid ROI (typically 1 to 6 months), since expensive fax boards and dedicated analog lines are not required.

Increasing Staff Productivity

XMediusFAX® boosts productivity by typically 90% over traditional manual faxing, since users no longer need to make time-consuming trips to a fax machine.

Reducing Telecom Costs

XMediusFAX® can reduce telecom costs by up to 90% over tra- ditional faxing. In multi-branch organizations, long-distance fax charges are drastically reduced through XMediusFAX®’s built-in Least Cost Routing. XMediusFAX® eliminates costly analog phone lines, hardware, maintenance and supplies.

Organizations can save tens of thousands of dollars a year with XMediusFAX®.

Facilitates Seamless Interoperability and Cost-Optimized Application Integration

XMediusFAX® drives business process costs down by seamlessly interoperating with VoIP gateways, IPBXs, voicemail systems (UM/UC applications including Microsoft Exchange 2013), LDAP directories, ECM/ERP applications including Microsoft SharePoint, and MFDs. Feature rich, open integration tools based on Java CORBA, XML, web services, and Python scripting technologies enable cost-optimized and tailored application.


Flexible Architecture

Improving Security and Compliance

XMediusFAX® advanced user/admin control, management, and encryption features efficiently protect document privacy and facilitate compliance with regulations, such as HIPAA and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Sensitive documents in TIFF or PDF format are routed to only approved recipients and designated secure printers / MFDs.

Enabling Survivability

The XMediusFAX® Service Provider Edition provides high avail- ability (HA) as well as a variety of deployment models ranging from disaster recovery (DR) to remote branch survivability (BS).

Enabling a Future-Proof Investment

As a completely software-based IP fax server solution, XMe- diusFAX ® Service Provider Edition is highly scalable by simply licensing extra channels – no extra hardware or third-par- ty kits required. XMediusFAX® can also interoperate with fax boards to preserve existing investments in network architecture. It is a future-proof fax server investment that provides an easy migration path to VoIP deployment. Standards based SIP and H.323 support also ensure compatibility with today’s and emerging VoIP systems.


Simple Operations

Faxing Anywhere, Anytime, & from Any Device

In today’s increasingly connected and mobile workplace, XMediusFAX® software solutions provide users unique operations simplicity in sending and receiving faxes from a wide spectrum of interfaces (i.e., desktop email clients, MFDs, cell phones, etc.) and leveraging powerful web-optimized reporting tools - with guaranteed performance.
