Advanced fax solutions for IP networks provider Sagem-Interstar (Sagemcom Group) has announced that its XMediusFAX software only T.38 FoIP server solutions are now compliant with key IP telephony solutions from Avaya, a global business applications, systems and services provider.
The XMediusFAX FoIP solutions deliver cost-effective and efficient processes for mission-critical enterprise faxing at the office, at home or on the road. XMediusFAX FoIP server software solutions have been compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura Communication Manager 5.2.1 and Avaya Aura SIP Enablement Services 5.2.1 using SIP and ISDN-PRI trunking, along with Avaya Media Gateways.

'Our green-optimized XMediusFAX IP fax server solutions are the perfect fit for Avaya's open, standards-based platform,' said Jean Champagne, general manager of Sagemcom Group, in a statement.
'XMediusFAX FoIP benefits businesses with Avaya Unified Communications (News - Alert) infrastructures by enhancing productivity, streamlining operations, and lowering total cost of ownership. All this is important in the context of today's stringent regulatory compliances, evolving UC and ECM infrastructure strategies, and diverse requirements for integration with MFP, ERP/CRM, virtualization and SIP trunking networking applications,' Champagne continued.
The American Chartered Bank is one company benefitting from the interoperability of XMediusFAX FoIP and Avaya solutions. This premier bank with 14 locations in the northwest Illinois suburban corridor relies heavily on faxing to send thousands of pages of sensitive information and other banking documents every month.

The installation process was very quick and did not require much work within Avaya Communication Manager,' said Gary Peters, second vice president, information systems, American Chartered Bank.
'Everyone likes the way they can now receive faxes directly into their email boxes and only print those items that they absolutely need to print. The product does everything that was promised and is very easy to administer.'
