  1. 1. Integrate Fax into your Cisco IP Environment

  3. 3. According to Gartner, Fax is not about to disappear, but companies that ignore the changes in how fax is used and in the technologies in question will miss a strategic opportunity. Email, voicemail, IM, conferencing, presence, collaboration, video, voice + FAX
  4. 4. <ul><li>Financial institutions use fax to process multimillion-dollar transactions. </li></ul><ul><li>Large global investment companies log significant fax traffic with orders and confirmations from customers. </li></ul><ul><li>U.S. pharmacy chains use fax servers to log prescriptions, renewals, and clarifications from doctors in every state they serve. </li></ul><ul><li>Law firms use fax servers and fax machines to exchange marked-up contract drafts, as well as final signed versions, as legally valid means of communications. </li></ul><ul><li>A manufacturer of cleaning supplies uses fax to respond to requests for U.S. Material Safety Data sheets for emergencies. Requests may come from hospitals and fire departments with no e-mail or Web service. </li></ul>Fax is a critical component of communication
  5. 5. So, what’s the problem with UC and Fax? <ul><li>Even in converged IP organizations, fax still lags behind with: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No integration to Unified Communications – Productivity Miss </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Costly, inefficient fax machines (i.e. toner & paper) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Environmental wastes – Chemical landfill </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Analog / copper phone lines </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Specialized hardware to support legacy technology – Defeats the purpose of convergence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unreliable VoIP ATAs create frequent failures – VoIP vs FoIP / T.38 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No leverage of Network investment – No Storage, control or audit trail </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Overall… Wrong approach from inception </li></ul></ul>AXP Fax solution solves the “FAX PROBLEM”
  6. 6. Fax, Presence & Productivity
  7. 7. Œ Worker sends a document to be printed  Worker leaves desk to go to the printer Ž Worker waits for job to spool and print  Worker walks to fax, waits, scans in document  Worker returns to desk, has missed 3 messages @#*! Inefficiencies of Traditional Faxing
  8. 8. ‘ Worker must leave desk to check fax status ’ Worker returns to desk, as fax is still dialing Inefficiencies of Traditional Faxing
  9. 9. “ Fax transmission failed – must send again @#*! Inefficiencies of Traditional Faxing
  10. 10. Fax sent directly from desktop via email or client. XMediusFAX provides high-reliability transmission with fewer errors and provides automatic confirmation directly to the sender. Worker never leaves desk, or prints anything on paper. Efficiency by presence with fax server
  11. 11. Network Architecture Considerations
  12. 12. Typical Fax Server Deployment Remote board servers required in each branch office PC users PBX Remote users Fax Server Email Server Fax Fax Server Fax VPN WAN PBX PC users Email Server Fax Corporate office Branch office
  13. 13. To Fax enable a network… Leverage Existing Network Equipment Single-Purpose Hardware (3x more expensive, 2x the hassle) or Which would you rather install... +

There is strong business, economic, demographic and technical drivers shaping this trend” Inbar Lasser-Raab Senior Director of Marketing for Enterprise Routing and Switching at Cisco

  30. 30. Positive Environmental Impact Reduces paper use: In a large company*, network faxing can eliminate up to one ton of paper use per day – or up to 200 tons a year. Saves water: 7.57 million litres of fresh water are required to produce that year's worth of paper – enough to fill a city reservoir. Preserves forests: In only two years, our large company's fax paper use would have consumed a forest equal in size to New York Central Park, according to EPA statistics.
  31. 31. Saves energy: Making just one day's worth of paper for fax uses enough electricity to power the average home for six months. Cleaner planet: The average used toner cartridge weighs 3 lbs. It is composed of 40% plastic. The plastic is made of engineering-grade polymers which take over 1,000 years to decompose. Millions of empty toner and inkjet cartridges are thrown into the trash, ending up in our planet’s landfills or incinerators. Millions of tax dollars needed to pay for additional landfill management.
