The Fax Machine and the Cloud - Bridging the Gap
By Peter Bernstein, Senior Editor
Your father’s fax machine can be made every bit as useful as your most sophisticated “smart” office productivity devices, and possibly more so. Seamless integration with universal communications and Cloud-based capabilities is the answer.
Don’t believe it? Register now for, The Fax Machine and the Cloud – Bridging the Gap, taking place tomorrow Wednesday, September 7, 2011 2:00 PM EDT / 11:00 AM PDT, to find out why and how.
Getting rid of a bad rep for a great device
Standalone fax machines have a reputation challenge. Despite what looks like substitutable capabilities, we still rely heavily on facsimile machines in our businesses and personal lives. They serve mission critical functions, have universal portability (by virtue of being usable on any telephone line), and are easy to use. And, in an era of real-time communications they provide instantaneous connection confirmation and notice that what we sent was received, if not read. Yet, they tend to be viewed as technology dinosaurs. Not so.
Join webinar participants Alan Percy (News - Alert) Director of Market Development, AudioCodes; Quentin J. Dible , Vice President of Marketing, FaxSIPit USA; and Erik K. Linask, Group Editorial Director, TMCnet as they detail how inexpensive new solutions can make your standalone fax work efficiently, effectively and securely with Cloud-based fax services, on-premise fax server software systems and the latest in business collaboration software.
Learn how any size business cannot only eliminate the cost of a dedicated telephone line, but dramatically increase the utility of that old standby through tight integration with today’s fax services, on-premise fax servers, and universal communications functionality that is premise or Cloud-based. Benefits to be highlighted include:
· Better ease of use (including only printing when necessary)
· Improved tracking and performance metrics
· Increased reliability
· A higher degree of security
· Improved work flow
· Avoiding G.711 or T.38 fax issues, especially potential cloud migration ones
· How best to leverage integration with UC, Cloud and VoIP capabilities

At ITEXPO West, Austin, Texas, September 13-15, 2011, you can visit the booths of Platinum Sponsor Audio Codes (Booth #608) and FaxSIPit (Booth #326). Seeing is believing. Let the companies take you on a test drive and answer any questions.
Audio Codes is showing the MP202B HTTPSfax, a key component that enables connecting existing fax machines into both datacenter-based fax servers and cloud-based fax services. When combined with FaxSIPit software and services, the MP202 HTTPSfax solves some of the “unspoken” issues with G.711 or T.38 fax, especially when migrating to cloud-based communications.
Look forward to having you join the webinar and hope to see you in Austin.
