Sagem Communications launches the SAGEM FAX ATA 101S, bridging PSTN and VoIP

Paris, France, February 18, 2008 – Sagem Communications and Sagem-Interstar Inc. (, the global leader of Fax over IP (FoIP) solutions, announced today the worldwide launch of its new SAGEM FAX ATA 101S at the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Forum, on February 20–21 at the Palais des Congrès, Paris, France, and at ITEX 2008 (Information Technology Education / Expo), Booth 268, on February 21–22 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

The SAGEM FAX ATA 101S is an economical and compact device that connects to fax machines such as multifunction peripherals (MFPs), enabling secure and reliable fax communications over an IP network. The SAGEM FAX ATA 101S allows customers to continue using their traditional fax equipment and reduce the cost of analog lines, as they transition to a converged IP network environment. By simply connecting the SAGEM FAX ATA 101S to an MFP, users can reap the advantages of seamless and real-time T.38 Fax over IP (FoIP) communications.

The SAGEM FAX ATA 101S also offers additional benefits such as:

  • Seamless, plug & play integration: Integrates perfectly with any enterprise-class IP network and is compliant with most iPBX gateways and Unified Communications platforms, supporting such standards as SIP, T.38, and G.711.

  • High performance: As the most rapid and reliable ATA fax device on the market, it offers real-time faxing that guarantees the integrity of incoming and outgoing fax transmissions.

  • Compact design: A sleek fit (only 6x4x1 inches and 0.37 lbs) for any environment. Easy installation and automatic remote upgrades, facilitating deployment and maintenance.

  • Robust and reliable faxing: Unlike most other ATAs, the SAGEM FAX ATA 101S is specifically designed by Sagem Communications to handle heavy fax traffic.

“The new SAGEM FAX ATA 101S is our innovative response to the needs of enterprises migrating to IP networks. It is the perfect complement to our award-winning XMediusFAX T.38 FoIP server solution. Together with Sagem Communications’ suite of MFPs, these products provide our customers with cost-effective solutions, while paving the way to full-featured IP communication environments,” said Jean Champagne, General Manager of Sagem-Interstar.

The SAGEM FAX ATA 101S delivers huge benefits and cost savings to companies with significant investments in traditional fax devices. It enables organizations to easily migrate to an infrastructure that involves integrating MFPs with centralized IP fax server solutions such as XMediusFAX T.38 FoIP server software.
