IP Fax Feature: Sagem-Interstar, Cisco Webcast Highlights FoIP Survivability, MGCP

By Amy Tierney, TMCnet Web Editor

IP fax systems have become a hot-topic issue of late, particularly as more businesses migrate to the technology. The popularity of IP fax, in part, is driving more attention to the issue of survivability.
That’s one of the top discussion points as part of next week’s final segment of a three-part  webcast hosted by IP Fax solutions provider Sagem-Interstar and Cisco, the world’s largest maker of computer networking gear.  During the event, industry officials will address advanced FoIP networking considerations, such as survivability.
The webcast, called “Advanced FoIP networking considerations: Cisco AXP-SRST, FoIP survivability, MGCP,” is scheduled for at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, Oct. 15.
David Hanes of Cisco’s customer advanced engineering group and Matthew Miller, product manager at Sagem-Interstar (News - Alert), who oversees the company’s XMediusFAX product line lifecycle, will host the webcast. The two will discuss how the Cisco AXP-SRST solution delivers advanced survivability, security, and scalability. Registration is available here for the final webcast.
During the one-hour webinar, attendees can learn the ins and outs of advanced FoIP networking considerations, including FoIP troubleshooting techniques and engineering guidelines involving bandwidth, latency and packet loss; how MGCP voice gateways can be accessed by a fax server through Cisco (News - Alert) Call Manager and how the Cisco AXP-SRST solution offers advanced survivability, security, and scalability.
John Nikolopoulos, director of marketing, Sagem-Interstar, recently told TMC’s (News - Alert) Erik’s Linask during a video interview at ITEXPO (News - Alert) West, event whose annual counterpart ITEXPO East 2010 will take place Jan. 20-22 in Miami, that businesses have learned the importance of having a minimal threshold of survivability at the branch level.
Nikolopoulos said Cisco, for example, embedded a new offering from Sagem-Interstar that address survivability issues into its ISR/AXP extension application platform, which is deployed on the company’s integrated services router. The solution gives companies an automated form of survivability to provide valued added features to the branch, he said.
Sagem-Interstar, a company that offers email-based IP fax systems, desktop faxing solutions and fax outsourcing, catering to businesses and service providers of all sizes, defines survivability as the capability of a solution or system to withstand partial or total failures resulting from hardware, software, or both, or a catastrophic disaster without significantly impairing normal operations.
The webinar  follows two previous sessions. The first, called “FoIP Fundamentals,” covered the history of fax communications to through today’s IP-based systems offering an overview of fax servers, the current fax ecosystem and trends in Fax over IP.
The second session, which took place last month, featured “FoIP Applications – How a Fax Server Integrates into an IP Network,” discussed how fax servers communicate with various devices on an IP network. During the event, attendees learned about the newest  FoIP deployment and integration models and the advantages/disadvantages and challenges of legacy models.
