Commetrex Announces BladeWare IP-Fax Interop Test Suite

Roswell, GA January 28, 2009 – Commetrex Corporation announced today the launch of BladeWare™ IP-Fax Interop Test Suite. Tom Ray, Commetrex EVP of Sales and Marketing stated, “Since January 2002, Commetrex has led the industry effort for T.38 interoperability when the company launched the T.38 Interoperability Test Lab. Now, Commetrex has introduced the BladeWare Fax Interop Test Suite (FITS), which supports the 16 tests we previously featured in our T.38 Interoperability Test Lab, to allow the OEM to perform the same testing internally”. Ray also stated, “BladeWare FITS is a ready-to-test system comprised of a client application based on the BladeWare stand-alone IP-based media server that provides the developer with a T.38 fax and G.711 pass-through interoperability testing facility. “


Ray also added, “FITS uses BladeWare to place and accept SIP calls and to send-receive faxes for testing purposes. BladeWare’s fax capability is based on Commetrex’ TerminatingT38, which is the same technology that became the industry’s T.38 reference standard through its use in Commetrex’ T.38 Interop Lab. Commetrex invented TerminatingT38 in 2000 and then opened its T.38 Interop Lab in January 2002. We found that scheduling a mutually convenient time for our test engineers and that of our testing partners was a major obstacle. But with BladeWare™ FITS, a developer can perform the same tests with the same reference platform to his own schedule. The FITS product was developed as a means for customers to reduce their time-to-market while increasing their customer’s satisfaction and providing a great return on development cost and is licensed for 50- or 100-port test environments.”
