Floreat Introduces FloFax Embedded Fax and FoIP Software Solution

Floreat, Inc. announces the immediate availability of FloFax, a suite of host and embedded software-based Fax and Fax over Internet Protocol (FoIP) solutions, and product engineering services for global markets to meet the growing demand of innovative products such as Green fax, IP enabled gateways, next generation fax machines and specialized applications. In addition to reducing time-to-market requirements, these Fax and FoIP software products and services reduce manufacturers’ costs by 50-75%.

In recent times, as emails quickly became the preferred means of communication, it was assumed that Fax would disappear as the paper communications era came to an end; to everyone’s surprise, its presence has not diminished but instead has steadily grown to meet the requirements of corporations, lawyers, hospitals and even home-users.

With the goal of meeting any Fax communication requirement, Floreat has developed several fax solutions by utilizing their 15 man-years worth of proven legacy fax technology which has been deployed by more than a dozen industry leaders. Over the last few years, as VoIP has become widely-deployed and accepted, Floreat’s engineering team has contemporized and productized its legacy fax technology, permitting reliable fax communications using the Internet Protocol – Fax over IP (FoIP). To meet the diverse requirements and applications of customers, FloFax solutions include T.38 FoIP relay with V.17, V.29, V.27ter, V.21ch.2 fax modems, Terminating T.38, T.30 Fax Application Software with Tiff support, Voice-Fax discrimination, QoE and performance enhancements, support of call control stacks – SIP, H.323 and others, and Legacy Fax. FloFax also supports Fax over RF links and enables Green Fax that eliminates ink, paper and thermal transfers on mobile and portable communication devices.

Floreat also offers product engineering services for software, firmware and hardware development. Floreat’s team has developed this expertise while enabling and supporting customers’ products with its software. The product engineering services include software porting on embedded processors and DSPs, software optimization for footprints and CPU load, customization such as integration within any specified OS environment, development of device drivers, prototype hardware-design, and support of various AFEs. Our well-equipped test lab facilitates testing and additional development requests.

Floreat FloFax software offerings are listed at www.floreatinc.com/products; these fax and FoIP modules and packages meet a variety of applications listed at www.floreatinc.com/products/product-applications. Product engineering services offered can be accessed at www.floreatinc.com/services and the results of our extensive testing are available at www.floreatinc.com/products/fax-over-ip-foip/product-test-results.

These FloFax unique offerings provide our customers a single source for their fax requirements and overcome challenges they face with other solutions, such as insufficient offerings by a vendor to accomplish a fax product, lack of inter-operability with the 100+ fax machine models available on the market, and inflexible incumbent (and obsolescing) hardware chipsets.

“With a complete suite of FloFax software, layered with engineering expertise, we differentiate ourselves – we are able to adapt to our customers’ requirements rather than have customers adapt to us,” said Raj Gupta, Floreat’s Vice President of Sales and Applications. “Over the past few years we have geared ourselves to serve our customers to their entire satisfaction, facilitating one-stop shopping and significant cost-savings for all Fax and FoIP requirements.”
