FoIP Feature Editorial
5/16/2013… There are several important things to consider when choosing the right FoIP solution for your business. The benefits of a converged IP environment go far beyond cost savings, so IT managers must carefully consider the full feature list provided by any given solution.
5/16/2013… While there are those out there that view faxes as out of date, antiquated systems that don't keep up with the likes of more modern counterparts like instant messaging and the like, there are still plenty of businesses and agencies that not only use fax services, but depend on it every day. Those making the move to fax over IP, meanwhile, have one more reason to cheer as the SIP Forum's Fax over IP Task Group recently released RFC 6913.
5/10/2013… Unified communications (UC) has grown from an exclusive set of advanced enterprise technologies to a standard toolset for businesses of any size. The cost savings and performance boosts associated with a converged communications platform has become a critical requirement for success for nearly all industries.
5/10/2013… The spoked wheel was invented thousands of years ago and is still being used today. Granted, it has been "reinvented" several times to meet new requirements. The same applies to converged messaging and government imposed compliance rules.

3/5/2013… Since 2010, FaxCore has continued to expand its relationship with ShoreTel Resellers in North America and internationally. Officials tout ShoreTel's product excellence and the fact that like FaxCore, ShoreTel only markets their products via their reseller channel.
3/5/2013… The economy continues to be a major concern. Housing is coming back and the stock market has seen a resurgence, but overall the recovery still appears to be on hold or very weak at best. One bright spot in the country's economic woes has driven companies to focus on improving productivity by using the latest tools for automation.
2/8/2013… FoIP stands for Fax over IP and refers to the process of sending and receiving faxes via a VOIP network. With fax over IP (FoIP), schools no longer have to sit at the old fax machine anymore - with FoIP, they can get those letters of intent delivered to anywhere on their connected devices.
1/30/2013… FoIP, or Fax over IP, is the process of sending and receiving faxes via a VoIP network - an innovative technology that has become increasingly popular over the past few years. But is fax still relevant?
1/17/2013… In an age where almost all work essentials can be integrated into a single mobile device, thanks to the BYOD (bring your own device) trend, outdated systems have been thrown in the dumpsters, and there has never been so much office space freed up. The next bulky appliance to go is the fax machine.
1/17/2013… Different methods of sending and receiving information have come a long way from pigeon carriers. For a while faxes where the standard for delivering information, but fax over internet protocol (FoIP) is starting to become the norm because of the advantages and cost savings it offers.
1/10/2013… FaxCore is a top choice for companies when choosing a fax provider as it provides evolutionary server solutions for enterprise organizations, telecoms, SaaS and even specialized ASP providers.

1/10/2013… Saved by the Cloud is a series designed to help you formulate a BC/DR plan for your company. Part I exposed the risks of not having a plan in place when disaster strikes. In Part II -Phase I, we will begin the process of developing a strategy.
12/10/2012… Many SMBs and small enterprises are still under the impression that a full BC/DR plan is out of reach. However, today's cloud technologies provide even small organizations access to affordable protection. It's not too late to put together a 2013 BC/DR plan, but you need to get started now.
12/4/2012… This year, Nor'easter Athena struck within 10 days of Sandy's landfall while cleanup and repair operations were still in the early stages. Many businesses were forced into a temporary shutdown and some may ever fully recover. However, despite all of this devastation, some businesses managed to cope and remain fully operational.
11/16/2012… Thanksgiving, as we know it in the United States and Canada, is a holiday related to English traditions and the harvest festivals celebrated in many countries around the world. Canada celebrates the holiday in October and the USA on the fourth Thursday in November. It is a time to be thankful for the abundance bestowed on each of us. A time to hop in a car or plane or simply walk to a neighbor's house to enjoy getting together with family and friends and have a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
11/5/2012… While interruptions to the voting process due to storms and other crises isn't a new thing, states today are better able to ensure that all voters have an opportunity to cast their ballot thanks to the widespread adoption of broadband Internet connectivity and technologies such as cloud-based fax over IP
10/19/2012… Unified communications (UC) is a critical requirement for today's converged world. The FaxCore Inc. fax server leverages Web and Internet-based technology to deliver cost effective and simple implementations. The company leverages existing customer UC deployments by supporting VoIP solutions from companies like Cisco, Avaya, ShoreTel and others.
10/15/2012… Many of you will be reading this column while attending ITEXPO Austin in Austin so perhaps a little Texas folklore is in order. The phrase "How the cow ate the cabbage" is a frequently used folk saying in Texas. In fact, the phrase was included in a speech at the 1988 Democratic convention by former Texas Governor Ann Richards. The generally accepted meaning is to tell someone a truth they do not want to hear. It certainly fits this column, as we regularly remind our readers about the dangers presented by not being prepared for business adversities. Procrastinators probably prefer silence.
10/3/2012… When it comes to unified communications and cloud-based systems, one feature that cannot be left out is fax. One panel at the Cloud Communications Expo today, collocated with ITEXPO Austin 2012, revolved around just that subject.As it's certainly not a new development in the telecom industry, the panelists agreed that fax is often either left out of enterprise UC deployments altogether, or added as an afterthought somewhere down the line.
10/2/2012… FoIP, or Fax over IP, is the process of sending and receiving faxes via a VoIP network - an innovative technology that has become increasingly popular over the past few years.
10/2/2012… Fax solutions are and will remain a go-to communication channel within all types of business located around the globe. These offerings can be implemented to increase efficiency while reducing costs and adhering to mandates including HIPPA.

Specifically, the company's senior vice president, Max Schroder, will be participating in the ITEXPO Ingate SIP trunking summit case study block sessions on October 3, in room #9C starting at 3:00 p.m.
9/6/2012… Some things just work out better by being there in person. For example, sending a kiss by messenger just doesn't cut it. The same holds for trade conferences and is particularly critical for ITEXPO West this year. Frankly, there are just too many changes taking place in VoIP, FoIP, the cloud and IPv6 to miss this event.
8/31/2012… CloudFAX400 allows organizations send and receive fax through the Cloud. The service reduces the cost associated with traditional fax infrastructure. It also eliminates the need for fax servers. The hosted fax solution is designed specifically for companies sending and receiving FAX transactions from an IBM mid-range system or Windows network.
8/6/2012… Ever since email was introduced, there was this assumption that it would make fax obsolete. While the need for fax may have diminished in the wake of electronic mail, it has certainly not vanished, but has rather adapted to the times, particularly in the form of Fax-over-IP (FoIP).
8/1/2012… FaxCore, a provider of fax server solutions for enterprise organizations, telecoms, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and specialized ASP providers, announced it was recognized with the 2011 NGN Leadership Award from Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), an integrated, global media company. The award was presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY and Next Gen Mobility magazine - two publications from TMCnet - for the FaxCore Evolution eV5.
7/25/2012… While a recent survey of U.K. companies reveals that many organizations are "going back to fax," scores of businesses are making the switch to Fax over IP (FoIP) as part of the trend toward convergence of voice and data applications onto a single IP network. According to a recent survey by Esker, a source of document automation products, many U.K. companies are considering going "back to fax" in an attempt to beat the recent Royal Mail price hikes.
7/23/2012… Organizations looking at their first BC/DR implementation or upgrading an existing plan should first evaluate software-as-a-service options. SaaS solutions are quick to deploy and have lower up-front costs. Additionally, their inherent design makes them a perfect BC/DR choice.
6/28/2012… Businesses need to be very careful while selecting Fax over IP vendors. The companies need to follow certain protocols that need to be handled in regards to faxing. It is crucial to find a company that will be able to meet all of your corporate requirements in order to produce the best results.
6/21/2012… The term "True 21st Century Fax" covers a very small segment of the fax server industry defined by companies that use 21st century tools to integrate with other 21st century technologies. FaxCore's product line has always been a forerunner in this segment as evidenced by the list of features displayed in a 2008 TMC Channel Article.
6/13/2012… Enterprises today are more focused than ever on FoIP, but just as in 2007, many "Internet Fax" solutions are now available. However, they're not all created equal so enterprises need to understand some background about the technology involved, including what it can and cannot do. For example, problems persist over the global carrier network. However, many of the issues have been identified and are being addressed - plus virtually 100 percent of the fax machines in the world are not FoIP capable anyway. Regardless, the T.38 FoIP standard is very useful within an enterprise network particularly with a virtual OS and VoIP - so pure point-to-point FoIP does not diminish the value of FoIP.
6/4/2012… The song Pennies from Heaven was released in 1936 in the middle of the Great Depression, at a time when even copper pennies had value. Fortunately, today's cloud solutions can rain gold on both resellers and customers alike.
5/22/2012… Ever notice that when you are looking out of an airplane window the clouds appear as firm as packed snow on a ski slope? In reality these virtual solids only provide the illusion of solidity. Certainly a skydiver would not actually expect to land on the top of a cloud when making a jump.
5/21/2012… Aculab, a provider of computer telephony hardware and software, announced the availability of fax within its Aculab Cloud platform. The Aculab Cloud platform makes it simple to integrate fax into a range of applications, significantly reducing the cost of providing a range of fax services. It makes it easy to create on-demand telephony applications that make, receive and interact with calls.
5/16/2012… With the way technology has been evolving more toward a ubiquitous experience thanks to the cloud, traditional methods of sending faxes are slowly dying out. HelloFax's recent venture into the world of Google was a pretty big step forward for digitizing the fax market, but a lot of others are developing similar ideas too - like etherFAX, for instance.
5/14/2012… Fax-over-IP (FoIP) has received a lot of attention as a critical component of a global messaging solution which is why FaxCore helped pioneer this technology early in the century. Certainly the speed and convenience of today's messaging and video conferencing technologies has also provided senior executives with a great set of management tools for "remote global meetings." Theoretically, this should lead to reduced travel for management but that is not necessarily so. These same tools have also increased the available business opportunities and growth for companies seeking to expand their global operations. Some things change and some things will always remain the same.
4/25/2012… Sharp Documents Solutions Company of America (SDSCA) first unveiled its Sharp Open Systems Architecture (Sharp OSA) at the AIIM ON DEMAND conference in May of 2006 and FaxCore was there. FaxCore was also one of the first companies to sign on to the Sharp OSA Partner Program and receive validation for its FaxCore Connector for Sharp OSA enabled MFPs. As the relationship evolved, FaxCore developed several traditional and Fax-over-IP (FoIP) product bundles and programs specifically designed for its Sharp resellers to easily market FaxCore and OSA-enabled MFP solutions. The partnership with Sharp continues today with FaxCore's support of the latest version of Sharp's OSA v4.0.
4/25/2012… Searching for a paperless office is considered by some analogous to hunting unicorns or paperless tigers. Recently, at ITEXPO East in Miami, Erik Linask of TMC moderated a panel to explore this subject. As the Linask expedition roamed the global office jungle, some interesting footprints were uncovered.
4/24/2012… With the continued growth of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), companies are increasingly adopting fax-over-IP technology ( FoIP ), if you prefer, as businesses migrate more and more over to VoIP. Initially, VoIP was adopted by larger organizations or the traditional "first adopters" then moved to the small-medium-sized business (SMB) segment. Many industry experts are reporting that they're seeing a greater adoption of fax-over-IP in the SMB market.
4/13/2012… Searching for a paperless office is considered by some analogous to hunting unicorns or paperless tigers. Recently, at ITEXPO East in Miami, Erik Linask of TMC moderated a panel to explore this subject. As the Linask expedition roamed the global office jungle, some interesting footprints were uncovered.
4/3/2012… Signed documents have always been able to legally defend its literature because of the nature of the document - it's tangible. It therefore becomes necessary to reevaluate what it means for official materials to possess a signature when they're on a screen. Digital signatures faxed over the Internet (FoIP) emulate written John Hancocks as best they can, but their legal connotations don't translate as smoothly.
3/23/2012… Over that past weeks, part I and part II of this series reviewed several topics related to virtual reality and virtual solutions. Now may be a good time, however, to define - or redefine as it were - virtual reality. "In philosophy, reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined." (Wikipedia)
3/14/2012… Virtual reality is a term the general public likely associates with movies like Avatar, which blend real humans with imaginary ones and computer-generated graphics, or with alternate worlds where we, as humans, can interact with other humans through avatars. In other words, it combines the human with a representation that behaves as a human. Likewise, a virtual network is a mix of servers, combining real, physical servers with virtual servers. The virtual servers must exist on one more physical servers, so pure virtual is not really possible.
3/7/2012… etherFAX LLC has redefined cloud-based or Fax over IP (FoIP) by enabling users to send and receive faxes over the Internet, allowing companies to eliminate any monthly fees for an additional phone line. The only expense they occur now is for the faxes they send and receive via FoIP.
3/6/2012… Green has become the favorite color for many politicians recently. It is great for them to be seen as defenders of wildlife and the environment. Preserving trees is part of the banter, so the Paperless Office phrase surfaces regularly. The term "Paperless Office" has been around for a long time and gained momentum during the 1970's. In 1975, a Business Week article predicted that advances in office automation would make paper redundant. The introduction of the PC pushed the concept further along. However, the term has lost its luster and there are very few paperless offices out there.
2/1/2012… Max Schroeder, senior vice president of FaxCore, will be taking part in the ITEXPO UC-SIP Trunking Summit Fax-over-IP (FoIP) session at ITEXPO East 2012 in Miami Beach on February 2. iTEXPO is a not-to-miss event that brings together thought leaders in the industry and is happening right now from January 31- February 3.

12/23/2011… The Global Economy has been a hot topic in recent years. Of course, the Global Economy is not new and went into full swing shortly after the "discovery of the new world" by Christopher Columbus (aka Cristoforo Colombo, Cristobal Colon or any of the other names he used). The discoveries made in the new world transformed (or distorted as some would say) the global economy. Suddenly maize and potatoes were being grown in Europe and Asia. Eurasian diseases decimated the peoples of North and South America, allowing the Europeans to transform the environment to a European model.
12/13/2011… The company says their service is not exactly FoIP, but rather a proprietary, real-time encrypted communication transport between a customer's fax server and the etherFAX data center. This ensures 100 percent reliable communications without some of the issues that SIP, T.38, G.711 and FoIP face.
12/9/2011… The advent of Fax over IP (FoIP) solved a challenge in the business world where companies were increasingly migrating to all-IP environments and adopting unified communications technologies. As smartphones continue to proliferate throughout the corporate environment, the same level of encryption afforded in fax communications needs to be extended to mobility. Protected Mobility has provided the answer.
11/17/2011… The term "paperless office" has been circulating for decades ever since we realized just how many trees go into the waste baskets near our desks each day. This began long before the term "Green" was so closely associated with the term paperless office. Of course, Green is now associated with reducing emissions, conserving energy and many other environmental factors that go well beyond the paperless office.
10/21/2011… This is probably due to the popularity of FoIP. Simply said, the IP part of Fax-over-IP definitely triggers a "Cloud Fax" association and many organizations are evaluating this option. Actually, the industry offers lots of choices including but not restricted to: email to fax; fax to email; fully hosted fax servers; managed fax services; BC/DR failover services and many other choices. Each of the options offers different cost-benefit ratios and features.
10/5/2011… Global Airtech, a distributor of airline parts and services, has selected FaxCore and etherFAX to manage its business-critical fax communications.

8/5/2011… The world's agricultural food crops are almost exclusively derived from hybrid selection to improve flavor, color, yield and other desirable traits. Certainly, the above title would fit a paper to be presented at a conference of Midwest farmers. However, in today's business world, going green is a very desirable goal as it helps businesses hold down costs and improves their competitive edge. In the business world, companies are looking to technology hybrids instead of plant varietals.
7/12/2011… The key lies in the integration of FoIP into the general communications infrastructure, which FaxCore makes the process easy by providing a simple SDK that can be used to easily integrate with any existing system, along with Web-based APIs for simple administration.
7/8/2011… With the world still recovering from a major economic recession, many companies are looking for ways to revive their revenue streams. One thing they must consider is how to implement new efficiency-enhancing and cost-saving communications technologies so executives can sing, Happy Days Are Here Again.
6/29/2011… Simplicity and ease of use - they are two of the most critical elements of successful communications solutions. The fact is that most competing solutions offer similar feature sets and capabilities, but where they often differ is in deployment time, management complexity, and maintenance requirements. With the number of tasks both IT managers and end users are faced with on a daily basis, it seems intuitive that the simplest solutions - which does not mean sacrificing on feature sets - are likely to be the most popular.
6/8/2011… Application developers seeking an easy way to extend fax services to their software applications without relying on interference from telephony hardware and/or the infrastructure are sure to applaud the latest announcement from etherFAX, Inc.
4/29/2011… There are some in the communications space who would readily suggest that fax communications is a dying channel, one that companies no longer need to communicate effectively. The reality, however, is that a number of companies in a variety of industries continue to rely on fax technology for secure and reliable transmission of information.
4/15/2011… Is it possible that fax technology is still an important communication platform within the enterprise? Even in an all-IP environment, fax technology is still a priority channel, it just has taken on a new platform - FoIP, or Fax over IP. FaxCore is a key player in this space and TMC recently recognized the provider for its performance.
4/3/2011… Fax is dead! Those were words heard from many unified communications vendors during the past several years. But, to the contrary, the increased adoption of IP-based communications has helped revitalize the fax industry, giving rise to highly efficient FoIP solutions that integrate easily with other enterprise systems.
