Customers Evaluate FaxBack’s New HTTPS Fax Platform
New HTTPS fax connection method provides improvement in reliability, security, and simplicity over Internet-based SIP T.38 fax connections, says the company.
FaxBack, the “VoIP Fax Server” company, says that more than 40 leading carriers, enterprises, and SMB customers are evaluating the company’s new HTTPS Fax Platform, which enables fax machines and fax servers to achieve the same VoIP cost savings as voice calls while maintaining traditional TDM fax reliability over Internet-based VoIP, WiFi, cellular, or satellite connections.
FaxBack’s HTTPS Fax Platform consists of four elements:
- An HTTPS-Enabled Fax ATA that connects fax machines to VoIP providers over Internet connections and adds such features as fax image archiving and email notifications.
- A Free Microsoft Exchange 2010 UM Fax Connector that enables enterprises and SMBs to connect fax to Exchange, to deliver faxes to a person’s inbox, and supports Microsoft Fax client connections.This also provides a base platform with an upgrade path to NET SatisFAXtion, FaxBack’s fax server.Support for HTTPS in the connector enables businesses to use their provider-based VoIP telephony connections.
- A Fax Cloud Solution for carriers and enterprises provides integration into virtualization environments, and client connections (fax-to-email, fax machine and Microsoft Fax) or premise-based fax server connections, over the cloud.
- A “VoIP Fax Server” provides SMBs with cost savings and UC integration through a fax solution (HTTPS, T.30, T.38, SIP Stack, and fax server) from a single vendor.
FaxBack’s new HTTPS Fax Platform enables fax machines and fax servers (from all vendors) to stream fax data over the Internet, with TDM level reliability, even on low-quality networks. The solution scales to a full DS3 (672 ports) per server and offers full failover and redundancy.
Its multitier architecture facilitates carrier-to-carrier handoffs via HTTPS, which makes fax traffic routing easier. Enterprise customers can also leverage FaxBack’s new HTTPS Fax Platform by isolating their media gateway inside their firewall and passing HTTPS through, which can alleviate the network traffic load balancing issues that typically accompany complications with T.38.
“The Future of fax will center on VoIP and HTTPS connectivity, and FaxBack is the first company to recognize and promote this,” says Eli Mann, CEO for FaxSIPit, one of the providers evaluating the HTTPS Fax Platform. “FaxBack’s new HTTPS Fax Platform helps us improve the reliability and performance of our VoIP based Fax offering, and it helps us keep our costs low to remain competitive while simplifying our integration and security requirements.”
