ITEXPO VoIP fax server company FaxBack announced the general availability of its HTTPS Fax Platform, which enables fax machines, desktop fax applications (such as Windows Fax and Scan) and NET SatisFAXtion fax servers to stream fax data over low quality Internet connections, with TDM levels of reliability.
Originally announced in Beta this past February, FaxBacks HTTPS Fax Platform has been adopted by several customers, including carriers, enterprises and managed service providers enabling fax machines and fax servers to achieve the same cost savings as VoIP-based voice calls, while maintaining high reliability and security over Internet, wireless, cellular and satellite connections.
FaxBack introduced its HTTPS Fax Platform last winter, and since then, the industry has followed our lead by embracing the technology as a superior alternative to T.38-based fax solutions,” said Quentin Dible, VP of Operations for FaxBack. Where other fax providers are now just getting up to speed on the technology, were pleased to report that FaxBack has already had two carrier customers connect hundreds of Fax ATAs to customer fax machines with great success. Fax reliability, which was once a pain-point for carriers, has now become a success story, thanks to our HTTPS Fax technology.”
The HTTPS-based Fax Platform can scale from less than a T1 to a full DS3 (672 ports) per server; it easily facilitates full failover and redundancy, and features a multi-tier architecture, which facilitates carrier-to-carrier handoff via HTTPS. This makes fax traffic routing easy for smaller VoIP providers, while extending additional business opportunities for larger VoIP carriers.
