Sagem-Interstar announces new Cisco UCM 6.1 support using SIP trunking

Montreal, Canada, March 17, 2008 – Sagem-Interstar Inc. (Sagem Communications), the global leader in advanced fax solutions for IP networks, announced today that its new XMediusFAX 5.5.2 fax server will support Cisco Unified Communication Manager, version 6.1, using SIP trunking. This will enable SIP deployments to be standardized across the network, thereby ensuring higher interoperability with SIP providers.



Sagem-Interstar’s (www.faxserver.com) XMediusFAX Release 5.5.2 will be showcased at this week’s VoiceCon Orlando 2008 event (Booth 1212), which highlights how to build and leverage unified enterprise communications. VoiceCon is being held March 17–20 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, Orlando, FL.


XMediusFAX Release 5.5.2 is the latest evolution of Sagem-Interstar’s market-leading, boardless (software-only) T.38 FoIP server software. It also features a unique, built-in Python scripting capability for easy and customizable integration with a wide range of critical business applications to enhance document processing and workflow. XMediusFAX offers increased flexibility in fax routing, and a new Split Fax function that allows users to manipulate individual fax pages online. XMediusFAX FoIP enables organizations to boost productivity, save money, achieve regulatory compliance, and streamline administration.



“Consistent with this year’s VoiceCon theme, our XMediusFAX FoIP solution enables customers to profitably leverage their IP Telephony and Unified Communications implementations and bring all their fax traffic online,” said Jean Champagne, General Manager of Sagem-Interstar. “XMediusFAX excels at drastically reducing fax infrastructure by routing fax transmissions over IP networks and onto the desktop. And our support for Cisco Unified Communication Manager 6.1 using SIP trunking demonstrates our continued R&D leadership and further strengthens our position as the #1 FoIP solution in the Cisco VoIP marketplace.”
