About SAGEM F@x TM Server Using Interstar TechnologiesÂ’ Solutions

The new SAGEM F@X Server including FoIP is the perfect companion for a Voice Over IP (VoIP) deployment, allowing customers to convert all circuits to IP, including fax. It is easy to install and operate and provides unparalleled ROI by allowing companies to incorporate fax into their existing VoIP infrastructure, seamlessly integrating with IP PBX and voice mail systems. SAGEM F@X Server with FoIP technology offers controlled, centralized faxing from the desktop or MFD, as well as automatic inbound routing to boost productivity by 90%.

As the industry’s first boardless, T.38 FoIP software-based product, SAGEM F@X Server lowers communications and network management costs by at least 40%, since leased lines are no longer required. Faxes are routed to the branch office closest to the destination area code via Least Cost Routing and Intelligent Number Recognition, virtually eliminating long-distance charges. SAGEM F@X Server can also be set up boarded to operate with traditional fax boards to preserve existing investments in telecom architecture, or boardless to take advantage of VoIP gateways.

SAGEM F@X Server routes sensitive documents in TIFF or PDF format via the security of VoIP networks and VPN encryption directly to approved recipients, and designating secure printers for any required hard copies.

The Interstar solution supports Alcatel OmniPCX Enterprise, Cisco and 3Com gateways, and integrates with a variety of email messaging platforms, including Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, SAP and Cisco Unity. Other key features include support for H.323 and SIP for wide compatibility, SMTP and XML gateways, Group 4 (G4) fax, HTML email notification, an API module, SPAM filtering and a fax management client.

The SAGEM F@X Server now comes in three flavors: over ISDN, PSTN and IP.

The advanced ergonomics of SAGEM A4 and A3 MFDs are supported by the SAGEM F@X Server. These MFDs are native LAN products with printing speeds of 18 to 45 ppm. They include a duplex color scanner, duplex digital copier, LDAP client, SNMP management, and direct scan-to-email (SMTP POP3) and scan-to-FTP in PDF, JPEG or TIFF-F formats.
