RightFax 10.6: Updated RightFax Admin Dashboard

RightFax 10.6 provides administrators many tools to simplify management of their RightFax environments. We have touched on the tools that help administrators roll out RightFax across the enterprise. The RightFax Admin Dashboard, however, eases the task of administering a RightFax environment. The RightFax Admin Dashboard allows administrators the ability to monitor the activity of a RightFax environment across the enterprise. No matter if you have a single server, or a 4 server collective, the Admin Dashboard gives administrators a single utility to assist in management of the fax server. With the updated Dashboard, administrators can:

  • Monitor fax channel distributed use across a period of time
  • Assess fax volume over a certain time period
  • Gauge how many CPU cycles are spinning and how much hard drive is being utilized on a given server
  • Monitor work requests, DocTransports, and Local WorkServers

Using the Admin Dash facilitates easy management of the market leading fax server. The Admin Dash is also available within the web-client which makes checking and monitoring the RightFax environment as easy as opening a web-browser, allowing administrators the luxury of managing the environment from their home, a coffee shop or the beach!

RightFax 10.6: Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager

RightFax has always provided administrators with tools to aid in the roll out and management of RightFax on workstations across the enterprise. Prior versions have included “silent” installs of RightFax clients. RightFax 10.6 now supports Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, or Microsoft SCCM. If you use Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager to update workstations, you now have the ability to install RightFax clients, such as FaxUtil, using the SCCM.

Well, what’s the benefit of this? To start, it provides administrators with tool for simple management of enterprise roll-outs. Using SCCM grants the administrator control over the specific configurations of RightFax to be installed on the workstation. Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager support accelerates patch and update roll-outs to keep your organization up to date on the latest software improvements.

RightFax 10.6: Collective Environment Updates

RightFax Collective environments serve as a great way for organizations to ensure business continuity in the event of server failure. RightFax 10.6 now supports new features that make collective environments more stable and easier for administrators to manage. With RightFax 10.6, organizations can leverage up to 12 application servers running in one collective. Versions 10.5 and earlier could only maintain up to 4. The added server support allows for very large, scaled fax server environments for improved disaster recovery and limited down time.

Version 10.6 not only improves the fax servers disaster recovery capabilities, but it also allows for simplified management and implementation of collective server environments. In past versions of RightFax, installation of software onto a collective environment would require manual installation of the software onto each of the various applications server within the collective. The process was time consuming and prone to human error.

With 10.6, an improved Shared Services component allows one-time installation of software. After installation, the software would be copied across the multiple servers for one-time installation. Therefore, installation and management of collective environments is much simpler.

RightFax 10.6: Improved Interoperability

RightFax is the market leading fax server technology solution because it is interoperable with the leading telecom providers. RightFax 10.6 continues to support Avaya and Dialogic SIP trunks for T.38 FoIP transmission. RightFax 10.6 provides new levels of interoperability with updated Dialogic and Avaya SDK support.

The updated version Dialogic SDK facilitates in-band DTMF signaling support for PRI and FoIP. Now, your organization can path long distance access codes and outbound calls for cost-effective faxing.
