Sagem-Interstar's market-leading XMediusFAX T.38 Fax over IP (FoIP) fax server will enhance the Unified Communications solutions provided by Nortel and 3Com on the IBM System i business computing platform.
Lotusphere 2008 - Booth 501-504 (Orlando, FL), January 21, 2008 - Sagem-Interstar (www.faxserver.com), the global leader in boardless IP fax solutions for VoIP networks since 2002, announced today that a new Linux version of its award-winning XMediusFAX T.38 Fax over IP (FoIP) server technology will be globally available on April 30, 2008 for integration with the IBM System i (formerly AS/400 and iSeries) platform and Unified Communications environments provided by Nortel and 3Com.
The integration of Sagem-Interstar's XMediusFAX FoIP technology on IBM System i Unified Communications platforms from Nortel and 3Com, will empower users with robust and secure desktop faxing capabilities. SMB or large-enterprise users will be able to easily send and receive faxes directly from their Lotus Notes or Microsoft Exchange email clients. XMediusFAX also integrates with enterprise applications such as SAP, Siebel and Oracle to enable automated faxing. Faxes are easier to track, manage and archive, facilitating productivity boosts, improved collaboration and audit trails for regulatory compliance.
"At IBM, we believe in encouraging the development and support of products for System i that offer critical business systems for our customers, enabling them to better leverage their IBM System i infrastructure," said Mike Rousseaux, UC Offering Manager for IBM System i. "Sagem-Interstar's XMediusFAX brings a very elegant, fully integrated fax solution to System i customers that complements our Unified Communications solution for IBM System i and Lotus Domino systems. Faxing is still a vital, legally binding means of B2B communication, and with XMediusFAX, you will dramatically reduce communications costs and streamline business processes."
"Our XMediusFAX T.38 FoIP technology pioneered the boardless IP fax market in 2002. It is the most widely tested and field-proven FoIP solution in the industry," said Jean Champagne, General Manager of Sagem-Interstar. "Our integration for the IBM System i Unified Communications systems provides a very robust and cost-effective solution for faxing, voice, email, calendaring, instant messaging and collaboration."
