Aculab adds new features to its ApplianX IP Gateway

Aculab, a provider of enabling technology for the global communications market, has announced the addition of new features for its ApplianX IP Gateway – a resilient, single-purpose, plug-and-play device designed for both enterprise and service providers. As part of this enhancement the ApplianX IP Gateway now supports full T.38 fax interoperability, enabling a total fax solution within an IP environment.

“We are very pleased to offer full T.38 fax support for the ApplianX IP Gateway,” said Andy Dakin, Product Manager for the ApplianX product range. “We are seeing renewed interest in fax communications across many sectors, particularly in areas such as financial services and healthcare. ApplianX IP Gateway’s support of T.38 fax eliminates the need for analogue fax machines and their associated ports on the PBX. Combined with a fax server, it enables you to provide fax service to all employees regardless of locations.”

The ApplianX IP Gateway can be configured for simultaneous fax and voice calls. In addition to T.38 fax support, the gateway also includes a number of other new features, including T1 hookflash transfer and proxy diversion functionality.
Highly regarded for its ease of use and low administrative costs, the ApplianX IP Gateway supports a wide range of international protocols, making the device suitable for worldwide deployment in both enterprise and service provider networks. A number of leading solution providers, including Avaya and Cisco, have certified the ApplianX gateway for integration with legacy TDM-based PBXs.
