How does FoIP (Fax over IP) work?
Have you ever wondered how faxes are sent over an IP network?  There is no magic involved, just a digital solution using two separate protocols – T.30 and T.38 – combined with Dialogic Brooktrout Fax Products
The T.30 fax protocol was designed to be implemented over a network that provides smooth and uninterrupted data flows. Unfortunately, success is not guaranteed when trying to send fax traffic over a VoIP using the T.30 protocol. The nature of an IP network includes latency, jitter and packet-loss that are not tolerated by the T.30 protocol.
That is why the T.38 fax protocol was created to send and receive faxes in real time over a packet network, designed to preserve the traditional fax experience while compensating for the jitter, latency and packet loss that is inherit in all IP networks. Security is never comprised, and the way users send and receive faxes remains the same.
