By Carrie Schmelkin, TMCnet Web Editor
Sagemcom, a world leader in broadband terminals, convergence and energy solutions, recently took a trip to Orlando, Fla., to announce that its XMediusFAX Fax over IP (FoIP) software (releases 6.5 and up) had successfully completed interoperability testing with Cisco (News - Alert) Unified Communication Manager (CUCM) 8.5 and Cisco’s Unity Connection 8.5 voice messaging and UM solution. The announcement was made at the Enterprise Connect (News - Alert) show, held Feb. 28 to March 3.
Through the Cisco Developer Network, Cisco teams with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers, according to a press release. Sagemcom, which is a Registered Developer, offers a complementary product offering and has started to collaborate with Cisco to meet the needs of both company’s customers.
“Sagemcom is a Registered Developer within the Cisco Developer Network. We have a long-standing certification relationship with Cisco since XMediusFAX was launched in 2002. With the Cisco Unity Connection certification, Sagemcom is better poised to address opportunities resulting from Cisco’s recent end-of-life announcement for the Cisco Fax Server. Sagemcom is committed to continually offering Cisco customers and partners diverse alternatives for robust and cost-effective enterprise IP fax server solutions targeting key elements of Cisco networking infrastructure gear such as CUCM and Cisco Unity Connection.” said Jean Champagne (News - Alert), General Manager, Sagemcom Canada Inc.
XMediusFAX FoIP software, the most mature T.38 FoIP software on the market, allows customers to more adeptly introduce a variety of Cisco Compatible business applications, devices or services that can be used to boost up the capabilities, performance and management of their Cisco network. XMediusFAX relies on IP telephony and Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) systems to bolster productivity, collaboration and ROI by integrating fax on the desktop. Since 2002, enterprises and service providers have been turning to XMediusFAX to deliver scalable, secure and survivable FoIP solutions.
Sagemcom officials said in January – when the newest version of XMediusFax was introduced – that the new versions will help organizations improve business processes and better adhere to regulations such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI (News - Alert)) Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act, as well as the European e-inclusion policy.
