Eicon Partners to Bring Internet Voice and Fax to ISDN

Eicon Technology (Montreal, www.eicon.com) announced partner agreements with .comfax ("dot-com-fax", New York, www.comfax.com), and Net2Phone (Hackensack, N.J., www.net2phone.com). Under terms of the agreements, Eicon will integrate .comfax's Internet fax software and Net2Phone’s Internet telephony software into its DIVA line of ISDN remote access products.

Eicon customers will now be able to communicate from desktops over .comfax’s and Net2Phone’s global network of Internet fax servers and Internet voice gateways, bypassing traditional long-distance telecommunications networks. Using these services, users will eliminate the need for fax servers, fax service bureaus and dedicated phone lines, therefore reducing the costs associated with long distance telephone calls.

Eicon will include the Internet-based fax and voice software with its DIVA and DIVA PRO ISDN interface cards, which are distributed through its network of VARs and OEM customers.

"By partnering with .comfax and Net2Phone, Eicon is providing its customers with fax and voice alternatives via the Internet," says Ken Gingrich, Eicon’s Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing Operations. "These value-added benefits complement Eicon’s strategy to provide comprehensive communications tools." –Thomas Sullivan, Staff Reporter/Reviews Editor
