With technological advancements being made daily, fax communications are presumed to be on their way to extinction. However, fax continues to play a crucial role in the business operations for many organizations, especially in the healthcare, legal, financial and government sectors. In the midst of newly deployed VoIP and unified communications (UC) infrastructures, organizations often overlook implementing fax as part of their UC and converged IP strategy,
The Cisco (News
) Integrated Services Router plus the Cisco Application eXtension Platform (AXP)
address the challenges associated with fax by teaming with global innovator in advanced fax server solutions for SIP/IP networking infrastructures, Sagem-Interstar
and its XMediusFAX T.38 Fax over IP (FoIP) fax server technology.

In other Cisco AXP-related news, Cisco recently announced that The Cardiovascular Group, P.C. deployed Sagem (News
)-Interstar's XMediusFAX Fax over IP (FoIP) solution on the Cisco AXP. This solution was deployed by The Cardiovascular Group, P.C. in an effort to help employee productivity and help meet regulatory requirements for a robust, fast and reliable HIPAA-compliant healthcare communication solution.
According to Daryl Schweiger, information systems manager of The Cardiovascular Group, P.C, “Cisco AXP-XMediusFAX FoIP is a green solution, since it integrates directly into our existing ISR, and does not require additional cooling, power consumption and rack space. In all, The Cardiovascular Group anticipates monthly savings of $3,000 in telecom and document handling costs.”
The full case study for The Cardiovascular Group will be published to the Sagem-Interstar Web site in the coming weeks.
