What is FoIP?
FoIP allows data to be transmitted via the IP network. This
removes the need for hardware such as fax boards which, in turn allows you
to virtualize your fax server with other IT systems. In addition,
FoIP enables you to integrate your fax server with an IP phone system (or
IP-PBX) which removes the need for independent fax lines altogether.
FoIP can therefore bring both lower operating costs now, and lower hardware costs
in the future. It can also improve your disaster recovery processes,
improve fax server reliability and, because there's no need for the server
to connect to a physical phone line, you can locate your fax server almost
anywhere you like.
