Fax Over IP, commonly known as FoIP Solution is a software solution of Fax machine. Using VoIP technologies, we develop a soft fax server which will use the VoIP protocols to transfer the Fax over audio lines. It’s also known as soft fax server and virtual fax system. You don’t need to install or operate the heavy fax machines to send faxes. You may easily send the faxes using a PC or phone. FoIP solution is more cost effective compared to the traditional Fax system.
How FoIP System Works?
At Sender’s End:
A sender can send a fax by composing an email with all the required details of the recipient, subject and content or documents which need to get sent as a fax.
The content/documents to be faxed can be attached as attachments or pasted in the mail body. These attachments can support multiple predefined formats.
The fax server will decompose and frame the fax in a predefined way.
The fax will be sent on VoIP lines digitally which will ensure the quality and cost effectiveness.
At receiving end, the digital fax will be converted into the analog signals and will be delivered as a normal fax.
At Receiver’s End:
When a VoIP fax server will receive a fax, it will convert it into the digital format.
Fax Server will send the fax to the defined recipient in the predefined format.
The fax can be delivered as wither a fax document or an email.
The user can send/receive faxes in three different ways which are briefly described below:
Web to Fax
An end user will be furnished with a predefined and specifically designed web portal. A web portal will have a simple form or email composer kind of layout. A user may compose a fax in a same way he composes an email The only difference is you have to mention a phone number instead of email id.
Email to Fax
To use email to fax, an end user needs to simply compose an email and address the recipients number followed by the fax server name. For example. if ecosmob.com is a fax server then send an email to: email@example.com
