When it comes to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), fax is one of the most sought after technologies. Just to put the phenomenal growth of VoIP into perspective, in 2010, about 1.8 billion people used the Internet worldwide. Today, about 22 percent of the world – or 2.4 billion of the globe’s population – use the Internet, with more than 20 million of them based right here in the United States – a 75 percent increase in just two years. When you think about it, fax was, is and most likely always will be around. VoIP may have experienced a rough start, but it has slowly proven itself to be an integral part of efficient fax communications.
According to this list of recently published statistics, although there are thousands of seemingly reputable VoIP providers in today’s market, “a lot of people and business owners say that only a few (less than ten) will qualify as serious and competent VoIP providers.”
This could be largely due to the fact that so many have not adapted to the rapidly evolving times. FaxSIPit and partners AudioCodes (News - Alert) and Faxback, for example, stand out among the rest in the fact that they have made true advancements in HTTPS fax transmission that have begun to set new standards toward becoming the new benchmark within the FoIP industry, according to Randy Simmons, VP Sales, FaxSIPit Services (News - Alert), Inc.
“What’s been really lacking in the fax machine or MFD industry is a way to connect physical fax machines to the open internet for reliable delivery. Until now, that is,” Simmons explains.
The advanced features of fax VoIP can not only change the lives of businesses’ day-to-day routines, but this technology can also give companies the boost they need to achieve effective and economical communication and customer service, notes this statistics site.
Fax VoIP allows you to essentially eliminate the traditional time consuming fax machine, which wastes finances in its constant need for paper and ink feeds. “Even without a definite count of traditional fax machine users in the U.S. at the moment, the rising number of Internet and e-mail users tell us that online facing is also becoming more popular,” the site adds.
This recent PixelSlot article agrees, explaining how “online fax is definitely a more convenient and practical choice than traditional faxing…the unavoidable fact had been brought about by VoIP’s accessibility, usefulness, and affordability, which has not only given a better option for households, but for businesses as well.”
FaxSIPit is one renowned VoIP provider who ensures robust fax communication among the many, who is well-known for its robust HTTPS fax technology. The company’s cloud-based service network, for example, is a proven IP-based fax network that combines HTTPS termination with existing TDM reliability for guaranteed fax delivery.
FaxSIPit also combines the AudioCode 202B HTTPS ATA with use of its fax-to-fax transmission, which allows carriers to successfully make thousands of connections over the open Internet, wireless and satellite – all at once and in real-time.
“This exciting new marriage of HTTPS and fax technology will now allow VoIP telecom providers, or anyone for that fact, to utilize VoIP fax with the utmost of confidence knowing that the faxes are going to be delivered reliably and securely. We as a group see this as the future for VoIP fax delivery,” Simmons concludes, proving that coupled with HTTPS, fax has essentially gone from being the understudy to the opening night lead.
