As many businesses take a look back on 2012 and as well are looking to 2013 as a New Year of promise and opportunity, it seems like the perfect time to look back on the success of FoIP solutions provider, FaxSIPit, which earlier this year sat down with TMC (News - Alert) to discuss what sets its services apart from competition, what the company has been doing this year to continue the fax VoIP momentum and how its newest service will continue to help businesses meet their fax needs.
TMC’s Tammy Wolf does an excellent job of explaining the history of VoIP in the fax equation, including where problems lie and how FaxSIPit chooses to overcome them.
“VoIP connectivity for fax solutions, specifically SIP T.38, while working well in local network connections to VoIP-based phone systems, do not work well over SIP trunks or rather VoIP connections over the Internet where burst packet loss can be all too common,” Wolf writes. “It’s the burst packet loss that will significantly affect fax communications. The SIP T.38 protocol was not designed to withstand this burst loss and when it happens, the fax call is terminated.”
In light of this, FaxSIPit has made it its mission to simply allow the user to connect their trusted fax solution to a reliable, cloud-based telephony or existing fax services.
The company explains that by combining its fax VoIP solutions portfolio with FaxBack (News - Alert), a FoIP technology vendor, the company offers a revolutionary and unmatched way to seamlessly deliver fax.
The company elaborated on how its fax solutions complement VoIP environments by offering three basic fax services for businesses and end-users, that Wolf explains utilize cutting-edge, secure and reliable HTTPS fax connections. These include:
- Fax Machine connections using an HTTPS enabled Fax ATA
- “Windows Fax and Scan” or Microsoft (News - Alert) Fax, an embedded Fax Client in all versions of Windows for end-users including Windows 7
- HTTPS Fax Trunk connections for premises-based fax servers
“FaxSIPit is allowing users to keep what fax functionality they need,” FaxSIPit’s Quentin Dible told Wolf. “Whether this is the fax machine or a premises-based fax server, FaxSIPit is making the connectivity easy, reliable and secure while still retaining the cost effectiveness associated with IP-based communication.”
Bottom line: When businesses are writing up their wish lists this holiday season, the last thing they want is to worry or struggle over their fax solution’s telephony connections. Rather, they desire a way to easily control their fax solution to provide peace of mind.
FaxSIPit does just that by bringing “a new realm of IP-based fax telephony connections to the market,” as explained by Dible.
In May 2012, the company revealed its new FaxCONNECTit Fax over VoIP solution for enhanced VoIP fax. Dible explained to Wolf that by offering businesses and users the option to keep their fax machine while omitting the costly and often inaccessible analog phone lines needed for connection, FaxCONNECTit can cut costs while piling on the advanced features and functionalities needed for optimum fax sending and receiving.
The company is certainly looking forward to a very successful 2013!
