Faximum Announces Client/Server 3.0 with Internet
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - March 3, 1998 - At CT
Expo, FaximumŽ Software Inc. today announced Faximum Client/Server
3.0, its next generation fax server software package. This package
adds substantial cost-saving features to reduce or eliminate long
distance phone charges and to automate the routing of received
faxes without manual routing's costs and loss of privacy.
Faximum Software is proud to be SCO's
fax software partner in their booth (#700) at CT Expo'98 where
this software is being demonstrated for the first time.
Faximum Client/Server has been recognised since its first release
as one of the most technically sophisticated and feature-rich
network fax server packages. The server component runs on UNIX
while clients are available for both UNIX and Microsoft Windows
as well as for Network Computers and web browsers in general.
It is the only fax server package to have been OEMed by any major
UNIX vendor and an earlier version has been licensed and resold
by both Hewlett-Packard and Sun Microsystems.
Faximum Client/Server 3.0 incorporates many features not found
on other comparable packages. Some of the new features include:
- Internet faxing with least-cost routing
fax board support
- ISDN inbound fax routing
- Advanced fax compression algorithms
Faximum Client/Server will ship within 60 days with servers
for SCO OpenServer 5 and SCO UnixWare 7 and clients for Microsoft
Windows 95 and Windows NT. Ports to other server operating systems
will be announced in the second quarter of 1998. The software
starts at $1,695 for a single fax line server and two floating-user
client licences. Introductory upgrade pricing for existing customers
will start at $395.
1. Internet Faxing with Least-Cost Routing
Internet fax is the ability to bypass the long distance phone
network thus avoiding long distance phone charges.
Unlike products that use proprietary protocols, Faximum Client/Server
adheres to the recently approved standards for Internet Fax. This
means that customers can be assured that Faximum Client/Server
will be compatible with the widest range of Internet Fax machines
and Internet Fax servers now and in the future.
Faximum Client/Server can deliver faxes directly to Internet
fax machines such as the Panasonic
UF-770i over the Internet as well as to legacy fax machines
connected to the phone system.
2. Dialogic GammaFax Support
Dialogic GammaFax boards are considered to be among the most
reliable and compatible fax boards available.
When compared with the commodity Class 2 and 2.0 fax modems
used by some other products, Dialogic/GammaFax products deliver
higher throughput, fewer compatibility failures, and lower phone
by Dialogic show that even with modest usage the savings in
phone costs can amount to $2,000 per year.
"We are pleased to welcome Faximum Software to the growing ranks
of ISVs that support our telephony products," said John Taylor,
General Manager, Dialogic Corporation. "Support for SCO operating
systems is important to Dialogic and with this announcement from
Faximum, Dialogic can provide the intelligent fax solution for
Faximum's winning UNIX-based fax products."
3. ISDN Inbound Fax Routing
Faximum Software has added the capability to automatically route
incoming faxes to the desktop using ISDN technology instead of
the more costly DID mechanism used by other products. The details
of this important new significant feature are the subject of another
4. Advanced Compression Algorithms
Faximum Client/Server now supports T.4, T.4 2-D, and T.6 image
compression algorithms, permitting the widest compatibility with
fax image files. These advanced algorithms also minimise the disk
space needed for storing received faxes since Faximum Client/Server
3.0 can be configured to recompress received faxes using T.6 compression
even when the received fax is in T.4 format. This will further
reduce the costs of fax server operations.
