Fax has one of the longest established telecommunication standards in the world. What began in 1846 enjoys widespread adoption internationally amongst fax machines, intelligent fax boards, internet fax services, fax server software and cloud faxing systems. Fax has been long held as being just as good as sending a letter, thereby establishing fax as the second-best presentation of a document, according to the California Court of Appeals in Hofer v. Young, 38 Cal. App. 4th 52 (1995). Government, Healthcare, Financial services industries continue to deploy fax technology for security, confidentially and compliance purposes. FoIP or fax over IP is transitioning the telephony aspect of fax to the world of the Internet. FoIP is the next logical step to VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol), a technology that allows organizations voice capabilities over IP. With FoIP a fax is transmitted via the Internet rather than the traditional method of sending faxes via the telephone line. Using FoIP the digital data of a fax is separated into IP packets for transmission. Using FoIP opens to door to a wide variety of cost-saving business opportunities, which include server virtualization, IT consolidation and more.
