Commetrex Owns FoIP Test
If you have used a commercial product that supports FoIP testing, you are likely a user of Commetrex’ T.38 technology, since nearly every OEM in the test-equipment industry bases their FoIP-test products on our Multi-Modal Terminating Fax (MMTF). MMTF is licensed technology that supports T.38 and G.711 pass-through fax send-receive, and it is at the core of their FoIP-test features.
“How did this happen?” you say.
Well, it began with Commetrex’ invention of T.38 termination in 2001…a product we call TerminatingT38. We developed our T.30, the protocol of terminating G3 fax, nearly 20 years ago. Then, we were one of the first two companies in the industry to develop T.38, shipping serial number one in 1999. In 2001 we completed the integration of T.30 and T.38 to create TerminatingT38. Then, we combined TerminatingT38 with our T.30 and fax modems to create MMTF.
In January 2002, we opened the Commetrex T.38 Interop Test Lab, a no-fee open-to-all Internet-based interop-test lab. Within just 18 months nearly every gateway vendor with a fielded product participated. This not only moved T.38 as a standard into much broader interoperability, but it moved our T.38, and, specifically our TerminatingT38 to become the industry benchmark for T.38 interoperability.
As the saying goes: if you build it they will come, and come they did. Our first test-equipment deal came along in 2003. And earlier this year we signed our seventh test-equipment OEM.
