Re: HELP with VOIP faxing?

HI,

Thanks a lot for the response, I have no problem paying for the business account/s. Do you have any idea how much time it will take to send 1 page at 9600 baud? And also how much bandwith 1 page of fax will take?

Finding the answers to these questions will be great.

Faxing over VoIP is not reliable, you will find yourself resending a good percentage of your faxes. Additionally fax documents are sent by way of g711, so each line would take about 100k.

You need to look for a fax blast service if you have one fax going to many people, you can find an IP based one I am sure, and it should be pretty cheap.

Just do a search for VoIP Fax blast

On my vonage line, it normally takes 6 or 7 tries to get the fax through, if it goes at all, and that is just for a 2 page. But my AT&T beta line sends every time.

Do you know what fax speed you can get on your AT&T line?

No idea. Using a Brother stand alone fax machine.

I'd been having major issues with fax reliability on Vonage. It's taken 10 days to fix, but with input from tech support found a cheap easy solution, that seems to work. We put a DSL filter netween the Fax and the MTA box - presto works like a dream.

This is not entirely true - we fax daily over VOIP on our Quintum H.323 network and have NEVER had to resend. If your statement is related to Faxing via Vonage, P8, Voicepulse (or anyone else I may have missed), please qualify your statement.
