It seems the only outdated thing concerning fax technology today is our perception of it – or should we say it’s more so skewed? With every New Year comes new resolutions, but that doesn’t mean those who make them will keep them. In fact, earlier this year, a recent study was reported revealing that nearly 80 percent of those who set New Year’s resolutions fail to keep them. While losing weight is oftentimes the No. 1 most recycled New Year’s resolution, VoIP telecom providers– or for that matter, all of us – should strive to make a conscious decision to shed the weight of our misguided perceptions of what fax technology can do. Here’s why.
A few years ago, it was not uncommon to hear horror stories of fax and VoIP. In fact, up until recently, they did share quite the tumultuous relationship; however, one FoIP provider has been tirelessly working to wipe away the worrisome views of Fax VoIP.
What should be more worrisome is that these opinions have steadily continued – if not, escalated – over the years when in actuality, they should be dissipating. Just this week, Telecom Reseller (News - Alert) released an article with the opening lines of, “On the legacy PSTN the answer was almost always ‘yes.’ If the path includes a VoIP segment, it’s ‘maybe, but the odds are improving.’” In reality, the odds have improved, and the latter of that statement should be equivalent to the former.
FaxSIPit is a provider of Fax over IP (FoIP) solutions, having dedicated the last 20-plus years to tackling problems in the fax industry with the emergence of VoIP. Today, the company touts its problem-busting brainchild that is quickly becoming an industry standard – HTTPS.
Boasting a powerful combination of FaxSIPit’s VoIP solutions portfolio with major players including FaxBack (News - Alert) and AudioCodes, the company resolves these issues by simply moving the “telephony” component from the standard T.38 to HTTPs, which allows virtually anyone to configure and install a fax solution. HTTPS fax requires no certified networking specialists, therefore eliminating all of the complex technical hurdles commonly faced by carriers and VoIP suppliers today.
For example, by combining AudioCodes’ (News - Alert) 202B HTTPS ATA with the use of FaxSIPit’s fax-to-fax transmission, carriers can successfully enjoy making thousands of quick, easy and secure connections over the open Internet and even wireless and satellite – something many believe is nearly impossible – all at once and in real-time.
Just this May, the company also introduced its new FaxCONNECTit Fax over IP solution for enhanced VoIP fax. FaxSIPit’s Quentin Dible explains that this solution offers businesses and users the option to keep their fax machine while omitting the costly and oftentimes inaccessible analog phone lines needed for connection. In other words, FaxCONNECTit cuts the costs while piling on the advanced features and functionalities needed today to achieve optimum fax transmission.
So there you have it – fax has officially been upgraded…have you?
