FAX number

Can any DID number with SIP redirection option also be used as a FAX number (e.g. in Asterisk or other services which offer fax routing) - or such DID must have special properties?

That's an interesting question.

One's first inclination is to say nothing special is needed....

....but consider the [Anveo DID's] for the Benelux countries:

BELGIUM VOICE+FAX
NETHERLANDS VOICE+FAX
LUXEMBOURG VOICE only

It would be interesting to know what the difference is.

Also, thank you, I had not realized before tonight that Benelux still existed as an entity within the EU.

And this may shed a little more light on things.

Could it be illegal to use a DID as a Fax in Luxemburg?

The whole area is confusing.

The largest province of Belgium is also called Luxembourg and is next to the country called (Grand Duchy of) Luxembourg.

Belgium's Luxembourg province used to be PART of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

An alien, seeing two Luxembourgs next to each other, might assume that a giant duplicating machine had been used.

To counter such fears, the Grand Duchy authorities might well put restrictions on telefacsimile (fax) usage.

This topic has (appropriately) been covered in the Wibberley books (concerning another small country, Grand Fenwick).

The difference is that the carrier, Voxbone, does not have fax equipments in Luxembourg.
