Best Practices for IP Fax Design
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
Fax technology has not gone the way of the bag phone and is in fact still an important communication tool within the business sector. The challenge, however, has been in ensuring fax communications integrate seamlessly in an all-IP world. True, you can keep the analog fax machine and have several scattered throughout the enterprise to continue to push documents out through analog phone lines. Or, you can leverage the next generation of fax technology and drive fax over IP.
To help you to better understand how best to leverage new technology in a network-based environment, you are invited to participate in an innovative event sponsored by the Cisco (News - Alert) Support Community.
As a part of the Cisco Live & Networkers Virtual Events, a free Webcast, T.38 Fax over IP Design Best Practices, is scheduled for Nov. 18 at 10:00 a.m. PT and 1:00 p.m.. This informative event features David Hanes, a Cisco expert focused on streamlining fax over IP in the corporate environment. Hanes will specifically focus on the T.38 protocol in this event as it has emerged as the de factor standard for transporting fax traffic in the Unified Communications (News - Alert) networks.
To get the most from T.38 and deploy it effectively, however, certain design practices must be followed. This online event will guide you through these T.38 design best practices and provide you with the knowledge necessary to ensure that your T.38 integrations and designs are truly successful.

Hanes has significant value to offer to any organization seeking to effectively implement fax over IP technology. Sagemcom leveraged his expertise in a five-part webinar series focused on educating attendees on fax over IP. This series: "Demystifying Fax over IP," offer key insight into leveraging this technology in an all IP environment. To access archived webinar events, simply access the series here.
There are a number of benefits to enjoy with the implementation of FoIP, but you have to have the right design and tools in place to maximize the value of this technology. Hanes and Cisco will provide expert insight into this field and this event is one you won’t want to miss.
