The Cisco AXP–XMediusFAX FoIP solution made its debut last April at the Cisco Partner Summit in Hawaii. It is the first IP fax solution to run inside a Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR) over the Cisco Application Extension Platform (AXP). This capability improves network virtualization and reduces hardware footprint in branch offices.
According to Doug Olive, president, Ingenium Software, “IP fax is emerging rapidly and extensively in UC deployments. The fax server market is undergoing a real paradigm shift toward integration of FoIP solutions such as Sagem-Interstar’s XMediusFAX server.”
He added, “As a Platinum member of Sagem-Interstar’s recently launched 4-Tier Channel Partner (News
