The transition to Voice over the Internet Protocol (VoIP) has been underway for over a decade, and as more companies replace their old analog and time-division multiplexing (TDM) phone systems with VoIP, SIP Trunking, and Unified Communications (UC), many are finding out the hard way that not all legacy applications perform well in the new converged environment.
Several older TDM applications require an analog telephone line to function properly, and fax is one in particular that is known to frequently fail when running over VoIP. For companies, especially those in regulated industries, that still need to send or receive faxes on a regular basis, this can be a real problem.
That is why many SIP Trunking and Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) providers actually recommend keeping critical fax applications on plain old telephone lines (an extra expense), since faxing is known to be so unreliable on IP networks. However, maintaining legacy phone lines adds to the cost and removes some of the benefits of UC.
Fortunately, there are cloud-based solutions that can integrate faxing seamlessly into your overall IP networking architecture.
Join eFax Corporate® for this webinar and learn more about:
- The many pitfalls that can interfere with faxing over VoIP and SIP
- The pros and cons of various workarounds you are likely to encounter
