Alcatel-Lucent and Sagem Communications join forces to broaden Unified communication offer


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and Sagem Communications (SAFRAN Group) have launched an embedded version of Sagem-Interstar’s Fax over IP server technology XMediusFAX within the Alcatel-Lucent OmniTouch Unified Communication suite(“OmniTouch UC”). The combined solution is aimed at offering customers worldwide a Fax over IP solution fully integrated into their communication environment. Users can easily send/receive faxes directly from their email client. Faxes are easier to track, manage and archive.

For many industries, faxing is and remains a legally binding and essential means of communication in business-to-business exchanges. The XMediusFax technology complements the OmniTouch UC solution with simple, flexible and field-proven capabilities. The T.38 FoIP technology is a globally accepted, secure,and reliable way to quickly transmit faxes over IP networks and the Internet. Customers benefit from the advantages of a packaged “ready to go” solution that features greater optimization between fax, voice, email, calendaring, instant messaging and collaboration.

The joint solution boosts employee productivity by providing rapid fax delivery and an efficient means of fax broadcasting. It streamlines workflow management (storage/archiving/tracking) and creates an audit trail fully in line with security & regulatory requirements. It also reduces hardware and maintenance costs, as its full boardless Fax over IP (FoIP) solution eliminates dedicated analog fax lines, as well as specialized fax equipment, maintenance and supplies. Additionally, both resellers and customers benefit from simplified ordering and improved cost structure of an integrated solution.

“Sagem-Interstar’s FoIP platform is a simple and elegant solution that is easily customizable for OEM integrations on platforms such as Windows and Linux. Our FoIP server, which pioneered the boardless IP fax market, is the most widely-tested and field-proven FoIP solution in the industry,” said Patrick Sevian, CEO Sagem Communications. “Sagem Communications is proud of having Alcatel-Lucent broadening its already leading solution with our technology.”

“At Alcatel-Lucent, we believe building the right relationships and joint solutions to support our customers goals is critical in today’s market. With Sagem, we are bringing our customers the first IP Telephony offer with a fully integrated Fax over IP and multimedia solution as part of our OmniTouch Unified Communication suite.“ said Tom Burns, President of the Alcatel-Lucent’s Enterprise activities. “By integrating simple yet business critical tasks like faxing, which is still an essential means of communication for many industries, we allow our customers to leverage their investment in communications to streamline the business processes.”
