Mediatrix VoIP Passes Commetrex' T.38 Interoperability Testing

8/1/2003 - Mediatrix Telecom and Commetrex have completed T.38 interoperability testing of the Mediatrix 1000 Series VoIP access devices and gateways in Commetrex' T.38 Interoperability Lab. The results of the 16-point test are posted on Commetrex' T.38 Interoperability Lab Web site. The Mediatrix 1000 Series met the Lab’s interoperability standards.

Alex Suter, Mediatrix' VP PLM and Operations, explains: " Improving the operation of T.38 is considered a strategic product priority given the importance of the T.38 fax relay feature to Mediatrix’ product portfolio. As part of our efforts in this regard, it made perfect sense to validate our product's T.38 capabilities with an independent lab so we turned to Commetrex."

Mediatrix develops VoIP access devices, gateways, and software connecting analog telephones, fax machines, and legacy PBX and key systems to an IP telephony network, as well as providing PSTN access for various VoIP end points such as IP phones, FXS devices, softphones, IP-based PBX and key systems.

"Mediatrix brings to 10 the number of companies that have submitted products for testing in the Lab," says Mike Wells, the Lab's lead engineer. "We opened the Lab in January of 2002 and have offered testing to any and all equipment developers with fielded gateways interested in achieving industry-wide interoperability of T.38-capable network equipment. And every time we test we learn something valuable, as do our testing partners."
