Patton, 3CX and FaxBack Join Forces to Unveil Mutually-Certified VoIP, iPBX and FAX Solutions at ITEXPO
October 07, 2010
FaxBack announces mutual certification with Patton and 3CX, forming a three-way partnership to launch complete, certified-interoperable IP communications solutions for new-generation enterprise networks.
GAITHERSBURG, MD: Patton—the leader in business and carrier-class network access, connectivity, VoIP and mobile video-surveillance equipment—announced today a three-way alliance with FaxBack and 3CX that delivers complete, fully-tested and certified-interoperable communications solutions for the new generation of IP-centric enterprise networks.
The alliance offers a set of joint solutions featuring Patton’s SmartNode™ VoIP gateway routers and 3CX’s software-based IP-PBX interoperating with FaxBack’s NET SatisFAXtion T.38 VoIP fax software or free Microsoft-certified fax-server plug-in for MS-Windows.
The three companies unveiled their joint solutions at ITEXPO in Los Angeles during 4-6 October.
With such productivity-enhancing conveniences as print-to-fax, integration with MS-Outlook, and inbound fax delivery as email attachment, the three-party solutions offer quick and easy setup, allowing organizations to maximize their VoIP investment, reduce costs and increase fax workflow efficiency.
“FaxBack clears a final hurdle,” said Mark Bradford, Director of Business Development at FaxBack,” for organizations adopting voice-over-IP: reliable fax. The demand has been incredible in the enterprise market, especially small businesses. I noticed many customers downloading our software referenced Patton and 3CX. Going to market as a team provides a certified solution, so our mutual customers can benefit from their investments sooner.”
“We’re addressing the heartache of the people out there,” said Sean Gerrity, Patton’s regional director for North America and Japan. “As a team we bring total solutions with proven interoperability to the marketplace. Stability is key. SmartNode™ customers say once they set it up, it just keeps working. They never have to touch it again. We chose FaxBack and 3CX as partners because their products offer similar levels of high reliability.”
“Patton delivers high-quality T.38 support,” Bradford explains. “Lots of gateways talk about the standard, but not everyone does it well or offers easy configuration. Patton is one of few companies that truly understand it, offering quality T.38 support for termination and origination. We are excited about this certification because, like FaxBack, Patton and 3CX offer tremendous value. We’re not the highest-cost offerings on the market. Our solutions are right-priced with powerful features and easy to implement.”
Recently, Patton’s SmartNode™ Session Border Controller scored the brand’s ninth VoIP award, sustaining Patton’s five-year winning streak.
