The convergence of data and communications networks via the Internet Protocol (IP) is occurring at an ever-increasing pace. With many government mandates in place to replace analog phone lines with IP telephony, organizations are looking to consolidate equipment and streamline management and administration overhead. The objectives behind this consolidation are simple: reduce IT infrastructure costs and manage all data and communication applications more efficiently.
As communication technology is quickly standardizing on IP, there is a natural overlap between those applications that rely on a traditional circuit-switched communications backbone and the evolving IP-based environments. The challenge for organizations is to fully understand how network applications distributed over an enterprise, such as RightFax, can take advantage of newer IP-based approaches to data communications.
OpenText™ RightFax Certified by Swisscom using VoIP Gate
Swisscom, along with technology partner Inter-Ibex, have eliminated the guesswork of interoperability between OpenText RightFax and Swisscom VoIP Gate by certifying the two solutions together. The powerful combination of Swisscom IP communications and RightFax provides a seamless solution for Fax over IP (FoIP). It ensures that the telephony features operate smoothly during the migration from TDM to SIP technology.
Certifications are a crucial aspect of technology and perform a necessary gatekeeping function to ensure that disparate technologies are able to interact with crucial software and applications.

About RightFax: When it comes to implementing FoIP, market leading RightFax fax server is the proven choice for providing flexible, scalable, and cost-effective FoIP solutions. Known for integrations, reliability, and manageability, OpenText RightFax provides built-in FoIP options, making it easy to deploy, set up, and manage FoIP implementations. Organizations leveraging Swisscom to consolidate resources, reduce costs and reap the other benefits of using their IP infrastructure for faxing will benefit from scalability and flexibility of RightFax as their document delivery engine.
About Swisscom: VoIP Gate connects an IP-based communication system (like an IP-PBX or UC server) to the public telephone network. For the connection signaling, VoIP Gate (Voice over IP) uses the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Thanks to SIP, VoIP Gate can set up and remove dedicated links in Swisscom’s IP network. Due to the consolidated communication network for voice and data, the planning, implementation and subsequent operation become simpler and less expensive. This solution corresponds to state of-the art technology and satisfies the highest standards concerning security and reliability.
About Inter-Ibex: a Swiss based IT consulting firm, active on Fax solutions for more than 15 years. The integration of RightFax solution into the customers’ VOIP infrastructure for a better cost handling and seamless integration of the FOIP solutions in the existing infrastructure is one of our main activities.
