06.7.2011 babyTEL announces interoperability with OpenText
Montreal, Canada – July 6, 2011 – babyTEL Inc., a leading provider of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions,today announced the successful completion of interoperability testing with OpenText RightFax 10 and babyTEL’s open Internet Fax over IP (FoIP) SIP Trunking service. The two companies can now provide reliable fax transmission over the Internet on SIP trunks by supplying enterprises and hosted service providers with end-to-end support for the T.38 FoIP protocol.
Enterprise fax server customers are rapidly moving to FoIP technology to leverage investments in converged voice and data networks as SIP/T.38 trunking is fast being adopted in lieu of legacy PSTN. As a result of this successful interoperability, enterprise can extend the efficiency of FoIP technology beyond the enterprise border to the user end points.
“The interest and demand for SIP-based communication services within the enterprise market continues to grow and with it comes the need to support reliable fax communications,” said Matthew Brine, Vice President, Fax and Document Distribution, OpenText. “At OpenText, we are committed to supporting this need through proven interoperability with industry-leading SIP trunking services, and we are particularly pleased to add babyTEL to our tested FoIP interoperability list.”
babyTEL’s FoIP optimized network, with end-to-end T.38 support, allows customers to deliver faxes over the open Internet and avoid the cost of dedicated data links, regular telephone Trunking and/or related hardware. As a result, users gain significant savings in lower call rates with this scalable solution, requiring only additional bandwidth for expansion, while meeting enterprise’s stringent demands for quality and reliability.
“We are very excited to have our FoIP-optimized network certified for interoperability with OpenText’s RightFax 10,” said Stephen Dorsey, CEO, babyTEL Inc “This collaboration between our companies marks an important chapter in FoIP, as it allows RightFax users to connect to our FoIP network using the readily available open Internet. By bundling babyTEL’s T.38 Trunking,OpenText RightFax 10 is ready to operate with minimal configuration, once connected to the Internet.”
