Do you know what FoIP is? It can go under many names, such as Fax over IP and Fax VoIP, but essentially, it means faxing over the Internet. More importantly, do you know what FoIP can do for your business? If not or if you may think you need to learn more, here’s a refresher course for you. We’re going back to the basics.
We all know that fax has been a long-standing form of communicational technology, spanning a history dating all the way back to the 1800’s, but did you know that FoIP has already been available for years as a prime choice for business operations? If you’ve ever sent a fax message via a computer, then you’ve already encountered FoIP. “The latest generation of FoIP systems combines the benefits of traditional faxing with the cost savings of Internet transmission methods,” the related how-to article explains.
Ultimately, it provides you with the best of both worlds for the absolute best form of fax transmission available. Needless to say, if you rely on fax for your business efficiency, this will certainly benefit you.
FoIP technically stands for Fax over Internet Protocol, meaning that it changes the standard method of fax transmission much like the way VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol changes the standard phone call.
This informational article breaks it down for us, explaining that “In both cases, data makes all or most of the trip between sending and receiving devices on a packet-switched network (usually the Internet), avoiding the long-distance phone lines of the circuit-switched telephone network…This reduces the cost of transmission and can be a more efficient setup for a business that already has access to Internet bandwidth.”

For example, such industry-leading technology is found in the company’s cloud-based service network – a proven IP-based fax network that boasts the successful transmitting and receiving of millions of faxes.
