FAX Over IP (FOIP)

FAX Over IP (FOIP)

Fax offers a secure and reliable method for the exchange of a variety of documents, including purchase orders, support notes and legal documents.

Mesh Telecom’s Fax over IP (FoIP) solution provides customers with the ability to access Cloud-based Faxcore Servers in multiple data centres around the country. Options available for Fax over IP (FoIP) include simply sending and receiving faxes directly from Outlook, least cost routing clients’ existing Fax Servers, and MFP integration. Mesh Telecom’s Fax over IP (FoIP) rates are highly competitive and billed per second. Faxes are transmitted at twice the speed, using V.34 (protocol used to increase fax transmission speed), resulting in further cost savings due to decreased fax call durations.

As fax technology evolves, companies are faced with the decision of whether to upgrade their fax solution to V.34, which represents the latest in fax standards. Nicknamed “V.Fast”, the V.34 fax standard is heralded as an important development in fax technology. Not only can it send fax data at more than twice the speed of V.17 (14.4 kbps) but it also supports fast handshaking, which can cut call setup and session-management time by one-third. Fax devices supporting the V.34 protocol also deliver more reliable fax transmissions.

Mesh Telecom’s Fax over IP (FoIP) solution, powered by Virtual Fax, offers companies a third generation IP faxing platform for inbound and outbound faxing. It not only reduces an organisation’s faxing costs by up to 35% but also benefits customers who are currently being charged a premium when faxing to 086 numbers.

Sending of Faxes

When evaluating the best solution for fax transmission, the following two items need to be considered:

  • Transmission Speed
    V-Fast technology enables the sender to transmit faxes up to three times faster.
  • Call Charges
    Mesh Telecom offers pure per second billing and discounted rates on all faxes sent, irrespective of the destination.
